I posted other food related photos this week, shrimp stand on the highway, Mazatlan food market, Malpica bakery.
Last week I posted about the Shrimp Ladies of Mazatlan. I promised that we were going to go back and buy some shrimp and have them cooked in a local restaurant. On Thursday we did that.
it was fun selecting which lady to buy from (the first one that actually spoke to us), selected our shrimp after she pointed out the prices, 120, 140, 150 pesos a kilo (equal to 2.2 pounds). We didn't negotiate but I suppose you could. It wasn't quite a kilo when she weighed them but it was enough and cost 126 pesos about $12.
I confirmed with her that we could take them to a restaurant Dunia around the corner to have them cooked and she said yes and also pointed to the place across the street that would do them as well. They had a huge sign showing the various ways they could do them for you.
We opted for Dunia as I had read about it.
We headed over, handed our bag to the waitress and sat down. She asked garlic? We said yes and ordered a couple of beers. She brought the beers and lime (de reguer in Mexico).
And then our shrimp served with tortillas! Absolutely delicious but I think she forgot the garlic!
