Not only does Cardero’s serve seafood, they also offer pizza, pasta, steaks and surprisingly Asian food. We didn’t try any of those though because we came for the seafood.
I forgot to bring my camera that day, so all my pictures are taken with my crappy phone camera.
My dad and I decided to share Mussels–coconut curry sauce, Asian herbs. These mussels were very plump and the sauce was nice and creamy. I enjoyed dipping my bread into the sauce and overall these were good.
My dad got Grilled Scallops–citrus butter, market vegetables, jasmine. The scallops were cooked nicely, albeit a bit cold when served. My dad thought the rice was a bit too salty, but it reminded him of Asian chicken rice.
I went for the Oyster Burger–skillet fried with side salad dressed in sherry vinaigrette. Served with tartar sauce, oyster was plump,juicy and cooked to perfection. I ended up not eating the bun ( typical of me) because I already ate too much bread beforehand. I should have asked for the dressing to be on the side because I found the salad too dressed for my liking.
Overall, Cardero’s exceeded my expectations. The service was friendly and attentive and I left quite satisfied.
