Rico’s Mar Azul Mariscos Truck (Highland Park)


$5 for 2 seafood tostadas!  And you can do even better depending on what tostadas you order. 

Being the frugal guy that I am, when this Mexican seafood truck outta Highland Park showed up on LA Magazine's Best Cheap Eats Edition, I  just had to go check it out.

I'm not sure what their days or hours of operation are, but on the Sunday afternoon that we drove up, we were lucky enough to find them.   They are parked right along side this park which makes an impromptu picnic a pretty good idea, if you ask me.

Now, about those cheap eats.  Every item is priced about 1 to 3 dollars cheaper than you'd find elsewhere.

 Their tostada mixta is the perfect size to eat without having to make more tostadas out of it.  Sure, you're not getting as much as you'd get from other places, but sometimes you're on a budget and sometimes you want to order a few things off of the menu.  The menu here, allows you to do just that.

The base for all of their tostadas are a curious blend of green cabbage and mayo?  It's basically a creamy slaw that works quite well, believe it or not.  The tostada de pulpo y mixta might not have been the best tostadas I've ever had but they were terrific value and had very good flavor to boot.  I'd gladly come here again and again.  With or without you, Lilly!
