Named after Mexico City’s massive seafood market, La Viga is a Redwood City favorite for oceanic fare with a Latin twist. Wedged between an industrial area and downtown, the basic but cheerful dining room draws both blue- and white-collar workers for heaping tacos—soft white corn tortillas stuffed with fried snapper fillet, cabbage, and chipotle crema; or crisp prawns with tomatillo-garlic sauce and pico de gallo. At the dinner hour, local residents stream in for the famed camarones picantes, a sizable mound of al dente fideos studded with plump prawns bathed in a spicy tomato sauce. With such fresh ingredients and bold flavors, the low prices and generous portions are particularly pleasing—and allow room for a creamy, delicate flan to finish.
