    If you are looking for large portions of uniquely prepared seafood at reasonable prices, head to Las Cachoreadas in Guaymas. Las Cachoreadas is located in Guaymas on Blvd. Benito Juarez, past the Soriano supermarket, on the right side of the street. Look for the large orange Mariscos sign.

    Don’t let the look from the street dissuade you. Beyond the gates is a welcoming patio, cooled by overhead fans. A big mango tree provides shade and adds to the Mexican courtyard atmosphere. The patio is decorated with large underwater murals on the walls and colorful parrots and Mexican flags overhead.

    Las Cachoreadas serves an extended lunch Thursday through Monday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

    Though busy at lunch time, we found a seat and were greeted with chips and salsa almost immediately. The service continued to be prompt and friendly throughout the meal.

    The menus are only in Spanish, so keep a dictionary handy. There are no desserts or alcohol. Available drinks are sodas or various flavors of be-lite. On the menu, foods are grouped under the following headings: tostadas, cocteles, tacos, orden, ceviche, caldos (soup).

    We started with an appetizer of orden de toros. This is a delicious dish of roasted chiles with the seeds removed and stuffed with shrimp in a soya, lime and salt sauce. Sharing an order of these is a little like playing Russian rullet, as you never know if your chile will be picante or not. An order of 12 chiles costs 80 pesos.

    I found it hard to choose between the large assortments of seafood dishes, but finally settled on tacos — one marlin and one shrimp. The corn tortillas were lightly fried, making them crispy, but not crumbly. The marlin taco was filled with a mouth-watering combination of fresh marlin, melted white cheese, tomatoes, onions, and green chiles. The simple but delectable shrimp tacos were filled with fresh shrimp, onions and cilantro. These tacos are priced at only 17 pesos each.

    One of my dining companions ordered the restaurant’s specialty, the cachoreada. If you are in the mood for a very large helping of seafood, this is the dish for you. It comes with shrimp, octopus, snail, crab and muscles piled high on a tostado and smothered in a soya and lime sauce all for 50 pesos.

    The 70 pesos manuela tempted my other dining companion with its raw and cooked shrimp, muscles, red onion, and avocado in a soya and lime sauce. Rico (delicious)!

    None of these meals come with any side dishes. But don’t worry, you won’t leave hungry, as the portions are very generous.

    The next time you are in Guaymas, search for this quaint eatery that serves huge helpings of seafood at reasonable prices. Remember to come early as the locals quickly fill it at lunch time.
