In this parched place called Tucson, the idea of fresh shrimp and cabrilla making a daily pilgrimage from Guaymas, Mexico is a rare treat. Yes, believe it, as there are two boats docked in the parking lot. But tasting is in the mouth of the diner as these two delicacies of the sea are so fresh, they practically swim up to the table. With food this fresh, simple preparations of soups, cocktails, tacos and grilled plates work best along with cold beer, plenty of limes, warm tortillas and fiery salsa in a casual nautical setting where you can almost smell the salty ocean breeze.
