Mexico's best shrimp cocktail, at Guadalajara's Tianguis del Sol, July 2008. Mexico Cooks! has traveled, lived, and eaten in 28 of Mexico's 31 states--plus the Distrito Federal--and has never eaten a better coctel de camarán. Here's the link to the Mexico Cooks! article.
Enchiladas placeras (plaza-style enchiladas), Pátzcuaro, Michoacán. This heaping platter full of enchiladas, potatoes, carrots, chicken breast, chiles, and cheese is addictive from the first bite. Mexico Cooks! shared this big-enough-for-two plate of food with a friend as often as possible during 2008. Read all about it here .
Chiles chilacas were Mexico Cooks!' biggest treat for the month of September. Go with us again to Queréndaro's chile fair.
Mexico Cooks! loves everything on the menu at Fonda Marceva in Morelia. What will it be: aporreadillo, toqueras, frijolitos con queso, pipián, or all of the above? Take five or six people and enjoy the buffet, a taste of the restaurant's many specialties.
A succulent treat during December: Pacific lobster from the port of Lázaro Cárdenas. Sweet, tender, and delicious, these deep-fried lobsters were the hit of December's V Encuentro de Cocina Tradicional de Michoacán.
Close to home and inexpensive, La Inmaculada Concepción is just the place for a down-home Mexican supper. Just seeing the photo of these quesadillas fritas (fried quesadillas) makes our mouthes water.
