Jarocho Pescados y Mariscos

Authentic Mexican Seafood

Fresh seafood isn’t what comes to mind when you visit Kansas City, but Chef Carlos Falcon is out to change that. Falcon will make you a Mexican seafood believer after tasting his Grilled Baby Octupus or Shrimp Aquachilles.

Grilled Octupus

Still timid? You can’t go wrong ordering the Fired Grilled Golden Trout. The menu caters to kids, too.

Jarocho’s cinder block blue exterior, located next to a tire shop in industril KCK, looks like it was flown over from Oaxaca, Mexico. The location isn’t suited for those requiring valet parking or Country Club Plaza window shopping.

For foodies who want wowed by a award-winning chef from Veracruz, this is a must visit restaurant. Jaraco is the winner of Feast magazine’s 2018 and 2019 best seafood and best Mexican restaurant awards. Belly up to the bar and enjoy a $38 shot of Jarocho’s best tequila.

Chef Falcon and his wife also operate a south Jarocho location at 13145 State Line, Kansas City, MO 64145.

If sushi is your thing, Falcon operates a third restaurant in Kansas City’s Brookside neighborhood called Sayachi Sushi.

Sayachi is a concept of Chef Falcon where he brought Chef Yama, who’s had fifteen years of Edomae sushi experience at Ginza Kyubey in Tokyo. Chef brings a combination of finely-honed skill, passion, and expertise to Sayachi.

  1. Such an outstanding restaurant in an unassuming place. The shrimp were huge and the sauce and slaw delightful. And Chef Falcon took time out of his busy Saturday evening feeding and pleasing, to come out and say hello to our table celebrating a friend’s birthday.

  2. I have enjoyed eating at Jarocho’s over a half dozen times with family and friends and for special occasions. The food has been great every time! Carlos gets the freshest fish and offers tasty seviche. His dishes are very creative!
    I’ve eaten at Sayashi too and highly recommend it as well!!
