Quality Mexican seafood can be hard to come by when you're landlocked, or not in Mexico, or not landlocked and in Mexico, but out of pesos because you spent them all on hilarious Senor Frog's tees. Bringing tasty Mexican seafood to the heart of South MPLS: Mi Sinaloa.
Slinging fishy foods on Chicago Ave, beachy Mi Sinaloa rocks sea murals from walls to tabletops, boasts a that's-totally-Mexican tiki beer bar, and is named for the state that has the country's second-largest saltwater fishing fleet and is home to Mazatlan, the spring break spot that has the country's first-largest fleet of people doing the fishing rod move at bars. Accessible sea fare starts with fried shrimp soft tacos and shrimp ceviche tostadas, but then runs more exotic with (more) shrimp, octopus, and oyster campechana, plus the seven-seafood soup "Caldo 7 Mares", which has poorly translating equestrian enthusiasts outraged. Because only hilarious little brothers at the dinner table are all about seafood diets, they've also got standard Mexican apps like fried chicken tacos and chimichangas, a mean breakfast that includes a pinto bean-based stew called "frijoles charros", Mexican eggs and hot sauce, and corn tortilla "chilaquiles".
The jukebox is Mexi-music-heavy, and there's a stage for live acts and, Thurs-Sun, karaoke -- just take it easy on the pre-song drinks, lest, like after that rowdy trip to Senor Frog's, you end the night land-locked up.
