cilantro and sliced avocado on top. The Vuelve a la Vida may be the most beloved La Terraza
cocktail, and is served with shrimp, octopus, oyster, scallops, chopped onions, tomato,

In the mood for a seafood taco?

Try the Taco Gobernador (camarón), a white corn tortilla stuffed with Baja California style griddled shrimp and spices, melted together with mozzarella cheese.

The Molcajete Cielo, Mar y Tierra is a local favorite that allows you to sample a diverse array of La Terraza’s meats, Griddled Chicken, Steak and Shrimp wrapped with bacon, accompanied with two quesadillas on top, grilled cactus, and topped with choriquezo.  Accompanied with Mexican rice and refried beans on the side served on aztec plate “molcajete” with your choice of corn or flour tortilla.

Couple’s love to share La Terraza’s Botana Pacifico, tossed shrimp with chili-lime marinade and mixed with octopus, oysters, clams, scallops, cucumber and red onions topped with Snow Crab Legs.
