From the owners of Lupes Mexican Eatery and Holy Paleta, El Viejón is now open in San Diego's Kearny Mesa with a menu of Mexican/Asian fusion seafood dishes. 

From husband-and-wife partners Luis & Angelica Gonzalez, who also own several Lupe's Mexican Eatery locations and two Holy Paleta outposts, El Viejon Seafood is now open in the space that last housed the short-lived Chung Chun Rice Dog in Kearny Mesa. El Viejon offers a menu of Mexican seafood dishes with an Asian twist, as well as "exotic" seafood towers and seafood tacos, all created by Chef Raul Olmos. The eatery also sells a variety of beer, Micheladas, margaritas, bottled Mexican sodas, and craft agua frescas. 

"Our team loves to innovate come up with new concepts and challenges," explained Luis Gonzalez. "We will be serving the highest quality of seafood & ingredients to become the best Mexican - Asian seafood spot in San Diego. We are excited to welcome our customers into our new concept in seafood with an asian twist at Convoy District. We want people to see El Viejon as a place to enjoy great seafood with great ambiance. Sure to hit the spot and the 'gram!"
