Ummm… say what? Mi Chula?! I’m even not going to begin to hazard an opinion on which definition of the word ‘chula’ should be understood as correct…
Anyhow, let’s not linger on that, because these guys are interesting for more than just their name. Exhibit A:
Ceviche kora and aguachiles. Exhibit B:
You seeing this? No barbacoa, asada, or buche – the menu is almost all (if not completely) seafood-based. Pescetarians rejoice!
Since we stumbled upon this place as we were returning from the (ever-so-gluttonous) taco truck tour, our capacity for sampling Mi Chula’s wares was limited. We did try the ceviche kora and aguachile, though. The kora was a refreshing and summery mix of cooked shrimp, mussels, and a white fish topped with tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions and served cold. The aguachile was an equally pleasing offering comprised of raw shrimp in a chile verde sauce with similar vegetable toppings. We also managed to try the camarones al gusto – a generous portion of cooked shrimp in a garlicky red sauce – which were tasty and marred only by a slight excess of salt.
Obviously, a lot of intriguing options were left unexplored. We intend to rectify that soon and will report back. Watch this space!
