Mexico City's El Peladito Seafood Restaurant To Open First U.S. Location In San Diego

June 22, 2019

With 6 locations dotted around Mexico City, El Peladito will open its first United States location in San Diego later this year, offering a menu of Sinaloa Mexican seafood.

Alejandra Herrera Hernandez and Chef Víctor Somoza Vega founded the first El Peladito restaurant in Mexico City in February 2014 and have since opened five more highly-rated locations around the sprawling metropolis. The baseball-themed restaurant serves a menu of Sinaloan dishes with a heavy focus on Mexican seafood. Last year, the restaurant partnered with Mexican actor Alexis Ayala to assist with expansion plans that included more branches around Mexico and outposts in the United States. 

El Peladito will open later this year in the space last occupied by Oggi's Brewhouse in the Eastlake area of Chula Vista. Like other branches, the restaurant will be devoted to baseball and serve a seafood-centric menu featuring ceviches, mariscos stuffed molcajetes, tostadas, tacos and entrees. There will also be a full bar with cocktails, beer and wine.

El Peladito will open at 2130 Birch Road, Suite 104, in Chula Vista. For more information, visit
