For many people, Mexican food is all about tamales, tacos, enchiladas, and burritos. Of course, those traditional Mexican dishes are delicious, and we serve them at 210 Ceviche. However, there is so much more to Mexican cuisine. At 210 Ceviche, we bring the spices and flavors of Pacific Coast Mexican cuisine to each of our dishes.
Pacific Style Mexican Cocina Cuisine Decoded
Pacific Coast Mexican Cuisine, also known as Pacific Style Mexican Cocina, is associated with regional dishes commonly found in the state of Sinaloa, on Mexico’s Pacific coast. The region is famous for dishes with bold flavors, with dishes rich with fresh seafood and seasoned with spices that are unique in Mexican foods. Even dishes that Americans traditionally associate with Mexican cuisine are given a zesty twist
Warm water fish like mahi-mahi, tuna, shrimp, and red snapper play prominent roles in Pacific Coast Mexican Cocina cuisine. The flavors of the seafood are enhanced by spices, like chili chitlepin, tamarindo, and jicama. Besides ceviche, typical dishes of the region include estofado stew, marlin quesadillas, seafood tacos, and aguachile.
The Freshest Ingredients – Meticulous Preparation
Owner Luis Ortega grew up with the ingredients and spices of Pacific Style Mexican Cocina cuisine, especially aguachiles and ceviche – the signature dish of 210 Ceviche. Ceviche is typically prepared with raw fish or shellfish, which is cured and marinated in lime juice, and then specially seasoned. The dish is finished with fresh veggies, fruit, rice, and other tasty ingredients.
Many people shy away from eating raw fish and seafood, but properly prepared ceviche is safe to eat. The acidity of the marinade “cooks” the fish or seafood, and gives it an opaque appearance and a firm texture, just as if it had been prepared with heat. 210 Ceviche uses only the highest quality fresh caught fish and seafood – with preparation techniques that not only adhere to, but also exceed, the strictest food safety handling guidelines within the industry.
