This week I’m blogging about traditional Mexican food.
This is not a blow-by-blow comparison with Tex-Mex food, but just a few casual comments on some of the delicious things you can find at a restaurant that features authentic Mexican cuisine.
Just like in most other restaurants, this category of eatery will most likely have a house special or two.
Chances are they will be based on the region of Mexico the cook/chef/owner is from.
It is generally accepted that there are seven regions, and they are the North, North Pacific Coast, Bajio (a low-lands in north central Mexico), South Pacific Coast, South, Gulf and Central.
La Nortena at 224 Porter in Biloxi serves a shrimp dish that is reminiscent of a shrimp cocktail called coctel de camaron, and it is a house special. These shrimp were cooked in olive oil, covered in picante sauce and garnished with avocado and a slice of lime. If you want to try something delicious, light and healthy, this one’s for you.
