Menu 1950s Riviera Pacifico


As a child, my parents often traveled to Ensenada to go fishing. I remember going to dinner one night at the Riviera Pacifico. I saved the menu. Broiled lobster, frog legs a la Florentine, Shaslelick tartare were each $4.00. The chefs name was Enrico Arzuffi. A picture of the menu is attached. It opens with paint and is very readable, Not sure about software.

I don't remember what I had but I suspect shrimp even though it's not on the menu. I do remember eating tacos near the pier. There were several old army tents and taco stands in a field next to the pier. The tacos were cooked in an improvised "wok" made by beating down the top of a fifty-five gallon barrel. They cut an opening in the side barrel and cooked with wood. My parents chartered out of Gordo's Landing.

Frog legs, ate many as a kid on the farm in Tennessee but never would have imagined that being a Mexican thing.
