Tamarindo Del Mar
Tamarindo is a great nice restaurant on the main street of Del Mar. The menu is predominately Mexican, but with broader Latin items such as paella, Cuban sandwiches and more. There is a large cocktail menu with margaritas and mezcal-based drinks and also a pisco sour (national booze of Peru) and a mojito (national drink of me!) I had the Oaxacan sloe, made with mezcal.

I ordered the short ribs. They were excellent. Rich and buttery, served over a slightly sweet grilled corn puree. My friend had pescado veracruz. This was a cod version of the classic huachinango (red snapper) a la veracruzana. He was very pleased.
