If you’re looking for seafood in Long Beach, your first, second, and 100th stop should be Cheko El Rey, a small Mexican restaurant on Market St. It’s run by a former Coni’Seafood cook, and you can tell - the food is innovative, spicy, and fantastic. The first dish to hit our table is always the Tostaditas Locas, corn chips topped with marlin pate, shrimp ceviche, and a slice of octopus. The three types of seafood balance each other out perfectly, and the spicy chile de arbol sauce makes the whole dish. Next, get the langostinos, doused in a creamy, super-strong chili sauce. And don’t leave without getting the snook, which is flayed open and slow-grilled until it’s crispy on the outside, and juicy and delicious on the inside. Come with a group, because the portions are huge, and you’ll want to order a lot.
