TRADITIONAL FOOD IN MAZATLAN In Mazatlan the traditional regional food is delicious and not as hot and spicy as it is in the south of the country, but it is very tasty. Some examples of traditional dishes are: pozole, menudo, the wonderful tortilla soup, chilaquiles, enchiladas and of course sea food, especially since Mazatlan is considered internationally “the shrimp capital”. At any home it is common to find marlin stew or shrimp ceviche, pescado zarandeado, breaded shrimp, shrimp empanadas, shrimp brochette and more; any of this dishes are served with rice or guacamole on site; and if u like fruits, here you will find the freshest fruit like mango, pineapple, guava, banana, watermelon, papaya and surely coconut. There is a very characteristic drink made of fruits like a smoothie and is called "Raspado". I have a good recommendation for you, after eating any of this succulent treat and make it part of your daily life take a nice and slow walk by the largest boardwalk in Mexico "el malecón de Mazatlán" just to keep in good shape and feel the cool breeze while enjoying our worldwide sunset. That is what a lot of people who have made Mazatlan their home do; and they really enjoy living in this paradise.
