San Diego enjoys the delicious influence of Baja seafood and flavors across our Mexican food scene, but Mar Rustico, helmed by Priscilla Curiel and next-door to her popular Tuetano Taqueria, focuses on Baja Sur-style dishes like fresh oysters in salsa verde, Burritos Choyero (choyero is a term for locals from Baja Sur) filled with smoked tuna and chipotle shrimp, an array of ceviches, and a bright, citrus-spiked Claw Chowder. The most popular ceviche bowl is Ceviche Sonora, which is the spiciest option, with seafood bathed in pickled veggies and fresh salsas—add oysters for an additional cost. Happy hour deals run from 2–5 pm Monday through Thursday, with a 16-ounce bowl of Ceviche de la Paz offered alongside a bottle of beer for $16.99, or one Fish Taco or Marlin Burrito with a bottle of beer for $9.99. Ask your server about other happy hour specials.
