Traditional Mexican Food In the Heart of Old Town San Diego

Kick off Lobster Season with Café Coyote Old Town’s
Puerto Nuevo Style Lobsters

October marks the start of lobster season and Café Coyote Old Town, winner of Best Mexican 2005-2013 has diners ready to line up to try the traditional Mexican preparation of Puerto Nuevo style lobsters.

Puerto Nuevo Baja was founded in 1956 and is known as the “Lobster Village” – home of Puerto Nuevo style lobsters.  According to tradition, the lobsters are caught live by Mexican fishermen and are pan-fried fresh by the fishermen’s wife so that the meat stays soft and tender and served with rice, beans and homemade flour tortillas.  A visit to Café Coyote Old Town is a wonderful way to enjoy this experience without crossing the border, going fishing and asking your wife to cook the lobster.

Café Coyote’s traditional Puerto Nuevo style Maine lobsters are flash fried and seasoned with garlic, black pepper and salt.  Café Coyote patrons have the choice of a whole 1¼ pound lobster dinner or a combination dinner of a half lobster with tequila lime shrimp or carne asada. Every Thursday Thur October, Café Coyote is offering the whole 1¼ pound lobster dinner at a special low price of $24.95. Served with drawn butter, fresh salsa, Mexican style rice, refried beans, and Café Coyote’s signature hot homemade flour tortillas, this annual dish is as close to Puerto Nuevo as San Diegans could ask for.

Live Maine Lobsters, served Puerto Nuevo Style, will be offered Daily at Cafe Coyote.
