Mariscos El Bucanero Restaurant Review: El Bucanero’s brand of Mexican seafood is ambitious by local standards --- and the foodie-favorite café has moved from its former Southside location (they promise to renovate and return) to a much larger (and louder) place. But the menu remains mostly the same despite the move: shrimp for tacos are fried in cornmeal and tucked into a tortilla with tartar sauce, pico de gallo and avocado. Several styles of ceviche, including one with fish, onion and tomato, all finely chopped, are offered. Do not miss the camarones aguachile with shrimp marinated in lime juice and fragrant with chiles. Fried fish is naturally available, but we recommend the spicy shrimp in a smoky diablo sauce or perhaps a taco el gobernador that pairs sautéed shrimp with a tomato sauce and melted white cheese. We might skip the bacon-wrapped shrimp El Bucanero, but would be happy to indulge in one of the several seafood soups.
