El Zarape Mexican Restaurant
4642 Park Boulevard,
University Heights
(619) 692-1652

Never has a sack of food been so enticing. Plump scallops, tucked into a flour tortilla, luxuriate in a rich, creamy sauce. Just before your taste buds go under, submerged by this rich combination, a zip of acidity pulls them into paradise. This workingman's coquilles St. Jacques melds salsa fresca, a white sauce of cream and mayonnaise, cheese, and scallops into a symphony of taste. El Zarape has made many a disciple of the mollusk-based meal ($4.50); enjoy yours while lounging out front in a wrought-iron patio chair or in the eclectic tile extravaganza of a dining room. After you finish, round out your meal with an order of chicken rolled tacos -- also the best in town -- heaped with guacamole and cheese ($2.69).
