Killer Shrimp, a Marina Del Rey Favorite for Over 30 Years

Even though Marina Del Rey hasn't really been LA's foodie destination, there's one place that's been consistently busy since they opened 30 years ago. The restaurant shut down for a bit, but thankfully reopened. Killer Shrimp got their popularity from their namesake dish (more on that later) and has expanded into a spacious space with a harbor view in MDR.

So, the killer shrimp. The original signature dish is a bowl of shrimp in spicy cajun-style broth and served with a French bread. Now, you can choose shrimp, crab, lobster, or all of the above. I tried the one with shrimp, crab, and lobster for $38.

The shrimp and dipping the bread into the spicy tomato-based broth is definitely the best part, though!

They now have a full menu beyond the killer shrimp dishes now. We tried the scallop "sashimi" appetizer (it was seared, so not technically a sashimi)

We also tried the Killer Paella (saffron rice, andouille sausage, chicken, clams, mussels, calamari, shrimp - $26)

The other dishes we tried were pretty good, I still would definitely get the killer shrimp dish if I go here! After all, it's the dish that made the restaurant and so many people have tried discovering or replicating the recipe, for good reason.

Killer Shrimp also has a full bar and some easy-drinking cocktails like Mai Tai and margaritas. There's not a lot of places to grab drinks in MDR, so it's good to have this as an option.
