Oh So Tasty: Ceviche Mixto at Meso Maya

Earlier this week, I was invited by Meso Maya to stop by and taste new menu items created by Chef Nico Sanchez. Never one to turn down food, I grabbed a gal pal and headed over to their Downtown location to see what was new.

Shoutout to our waiter, Carlos, who was a total rock star. He was full of helpful suggestions and helped steer us to the best things on the menu. One such example is the Ceviche Mixto ($12). This is not an appetizer I would normally have ordered but when I said I wanted something "light and fresh" Carlos was insistent that we try it. Boy, am I glad we did.

Comprised of Mazatlan shrimp, striped bass ceviche, fresh lime juice, jicama, cilantro, tomatoes, serrano and fresh avocado this dish was indeed light to the taste but packed a powerful tangy punch of flavor.

According to the website, Meso Maya offers “an adventure into the fresh, bold and earthy flavors of authentic interior Mexico” with a menu inspired by natural ingredients from Mexico with scratch moles, adobos, salsas, and hand-ground tortillas.  Other standouts included the Avocado Margarita and the Dessert Sampler.
