Mexican and Central American in New York
Tequila shrimp, fajitas, white cheese, quesedillas, mole and enchiladas are sure to be found in any Mexican restaurant. Peppers, spice, and tropical fruits are often the theme in Central American restaurants.
Come to Mexican restaurants and indulge your appetite for hot and spicy delights. A Mexican meal is not a meal without tortillas- the round, flat, pancake-like disks that are eaten with nearly any non-dessert dish, including salads, meats, seafood, beans and vegetables. Traditional meat dishes include cabrito (roasted kid goat), carnitas (braised pork cut into thin slices), fajitas (strips of beef grilled over coals) and more. The choice of seafood varies from shellfish, oysters, clams and scallops to crabs, shrimps, crayfish, lobsters and abalone. Mexican tequila is a famous alcoholic liquor. If you want something softer, try Margaritas - a cocktail made with tequila and lime juice. Suddenly you feel a hot fire coursing through your veins, and you want to dance. It's fiesta time!
