Mexico's Greatest Hits

One of the best parts of our vacations in Mexico is the food. Since our focus here is on Iowa food, I thought I would make a separate section for our posts on Mexico so just those that are interested could read about our trip. This little island, 5 miles long by a 1/2 wide, serves up some of the greatest food we've had anywhere. There are so many great restaurants that it was hard to choose which one to try next. So here's our Mexico's Greatest Hits of food! 

Huevos Rancheros



Shrimp Cocktail


Breaded Fish Fillet

Breakfast Cazuela

Pollo Torta - Chicken Sandwich

Chile Relleno

Breaded Fish Fillet

Garlic Shrimp

Pork Chunks

Breaded Fish Fillet (can you guess what Amy's favorite food is?? It was sooo good)

Mixed ceviche

Chicken Tacquito

Grilled whole red snapper

Beef, green pepper and onion pizza

Fredy's pork chop - it's the best on the island

Like I said, we had some great food. More detailed posts will be up soon, but that's a quick tour of the best dishes we had during our 2 weeks in the Mexican caribbean. The seafood was unbelieveably fresh and everything was so flavorful . We'll be adding a section soon if you'd like to read more in-depth posts on our trip to Isla Mujeres so... more to come!
