Rock Cod with Rice
El Toro Loco
1624 Francisco Blvd, Pacifica, CA 94044
Located in the sleepy Norcal seaside town of Pacifica, CA, El Toro Loco (The Crazy Bull) serves crazy good Peruvian food. I had the fried fish dinner – rock cod – which was beyond flavorful! It's light and fluffy, topped with vinegary red onions, replete with a fresh tomato and onion salad, and accented with an out-of-this-world dressing. There was a special touch to the rice, too, a spice I couldn’t quite identify. A squeeze of lime over it all and I was transported to the South American coast. There’s a line out the door on the weekends and live Latin music on Friday nights. You might even get asked to play the cabasa if you sit close by (we did).
