Wolves are known for their keen senses with their heightened hearing, smell, taste and vision far superior to others in the animal kingdom. So it is fitting that Long Beach’s newest restaurant, El Lobo (the wolf), strives to satisfy the dining public on every level by appealing to those very senses.
Under the careful guidance of Partner/Executive Chef Sonia Gomez, the new 40-seat eatery is dazzling guests with its menu of authentic, rustic Mexican cuisine – a far cry from the typical chain restaurants that have come to define the genre.
Open for dinner nightly, El Lobo offers a menu that includes such classic entrees as open-fire roasted Poblano peppers stuffed with pork picadillo (pears, plumbs and almonds) drizzled with walnut cream sauce and sprinkled with fresh Pomegranates; pan-seared Red Snapper sautéed in a fresh tomato, olive and caper jalapeno tequila sauce; and grilled Black Tiger Prawns sautéed in a garlic chile de arbol sauce with green and red bell peppers and onions served over stewed potatoes and vegetables. All entrees are priced well under $20.
