Down on Calle 13 about two blocks in from Benito Juarez on the north side of the street is a small restaurant called Jaimito’s. Jaimito’s has been open for the last 9 years and offers some of the most delicious seafood found anywhere in Rocky Point. The restaurant has been opened for the last 9 years and is known by Mexicans and Americans alike for the savory dishes all cooked Sinaloa style. Roxanna is the manager and does all of the cooking daily with the freshest vegetables and ingredients. All of the seafood is caught right here in Rocky Point so it’s a great way to support our local economy. My favorites are the fish tacos and shrimp tacos. They are topped with fresh cabbage, avocado, cilantro and extra special sauce that is just sensational. Over the years, I have brought many friends to Jaimito’s and everyone raves about the food coming out of the little restaurant! Jaimito’s also specializes in ceviche, lenguado and aguachile as well as many other seafood dishes. Roxanna recently prepared a tasting sample of her menu for me and I was hard pressed to pick the winner. EVERYTHING was AMAZING! Jaimito’s is open 6 days a week from 10 to 6 but is closed on Tuesday. Roxanna is known for her secret sauces that she whips up right in the restaurant. Her specialty is the salsa negra…you can put it on any of the dishes for some extra zip to your meal. One of the most mouth explosive dishes I have ever tried in Rocky Point was right here at Jaimito’s…the Tostada de Campechana. It is a tostada covered in an array of seafood and veggies all mixed together with of course their amazing sauces and topped with salsa negra. The result is MAGNIFICO! Jaimito’s serves soft drinks and water but they welcome you to bring in beer, wine or liquor of your choice! The décor is super casual and rustic Mexican with both indoor and outdoor seating. It is cool to sit inside and watch Roxanna prepare the food with painstaking precision. Who has the best fish tacos in Rocky Point? You be the judge and look for the purple sign on Calle 13 “JAIMITO’s” and tell them Marco from the Rocky Point Times sent you. I promise you, you will love it!
Until next month as Barbara Bush once said, “At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict, or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.” So grab your friends and head on down to our perfect beaches right here in Rocky Point and share the best thing you can…YOU! ADIOS AMGIOS!
