El Pelicano

15355 E. Colfax Ave.
Aurora, CO 80011

It’s the seafood preparations – ceviche, cold seafood platter, grilled tilapia with garlic and seafood tacos -that make El Pelicano memorable. Just the name of one destination dish, the Camarones a la Diabla, sounds exciting. We are talking about a shrimp cooked in sauce thickened with chipotles (smoked jalapeno peppers). The first, pleasantly warm taste gives way to a profound fire, especially if you are silly enough to order it "hot." The only thing to do is cool it with warm corn tortillas, rice and cervezas in El Pelicano’s laid-back, beach atmosphere. **
