Muelle Tres: Fresh and Local Seafood on Pier 3 in Ensenada

Embracing the abundance of local seafood that Baja California has to offer.

I found myself checking out the different types of steamed mussels that they had on their menu, as soon as I sat down. The tomato and basil variation, was the first to catch my eye. Soon a piping hot bowl of both steamed mussels, and clams hanging out in that very tomato and basil broth was right in front of me. Ahh, the sweet smell of fresh basil. The mussels and clams were cooked perfectly, and after each shell was emptied, I found myself soaking the frites in that amazing broth.

An erstwhile favorite at Muelle Tres: Mussels and frites.

The final dish of the meal, seared corvina with a couple of pieces of fried calamari sharing the same plate. I could have drunk the soy, serrano, ginger, and sesame seed sauce mixture that came alongside. That, drizzled over the tender fish filet, was just delightful. I most definitely did not hold back while dipping the calamari into that sauce as well.
