Every time I read a post from you... I want to head over to Long John Silvers and order those hush puppies. Oh man... there's one like 30 minutes from my house. My wife is going to be pissed, but that's where we're going tonight.

So... forced the wife and daughter to go there last night. It was actually really good... way better than I thought.

I ended up ordering a lot, because I wanted to try a little bit of everything and wasn't sure I could force (convince) my wife to go back a second time.

I got the grilled salmon platter on rice pilaf, which was badass. I got the stringed beans, and an order of hush puppies. I also got an order of Mac n' Cheese with the "Crumblies." It was a lot of food, no joke, but I still went back for more. I ordered a crab cake, and a huge order of 6 hush puppies and had it with the spicy sweet & sour sauce. So awesome...

Long John Silvers must have improved greatly since the 70s when one opened near my home town. It was pretty bad compared to most seafood places. It was my mother's favorite place to go eat, but then, for most of her life, 'eating out' was a thing of luxury.
(6 hushpuppies is not a huge order. It amounts to about the same as a single good slice of cornbread, as a single hushpuppie is made from about 1 1/2 tablespoons of mixture. I've made 9 gondola carloads of huspuppies in my lifetime... not really, but I've made (and eaten) a LOT of hushpuppies)

Back in the early 80s, there was a seafood restaurant in the little town of Seadrift Tx that had a seafood platter for well under $10. Fresh snapper, catfish, shrimp, crab and all the hushpuppies you wanted off the buffet. A wroking man's lunch, which I ate every day for about 2 months while drilling an oil well on the O'Conner Ranch just East of Seadrift.

Many don't realize it, but Mexican cuisine includes their own take on seafood. Usually a good bit more expensive than landlubber Mexican food but well worth the exra expense IMO.

My father and I used to go to Grandma and Grandpa's house and pick up a couple containers of coleslaw for them at a combo KFC/Long John Silvers, every time without fail, he'd ask me, "You want something?" and I'd answer, "Hush puppies, daddy" to which he'd reply, "We aint got time for that crap!"

I tried Mexican seafood ONCE, at Los Arbolitos in the rich are aof Monterrey, Mexico. It was inedible, even worse than regular authentic Mexican cuisine. Give me Tex-Mex ANY day.

Red Snapper has always been one of my favorites ever since I was a little kid living in Pensacola, but you just don't find it out west.

I love Mexican seafood!

This is not my video, but the town is half way between Los Mochis and Culiacan. ¬°Sinaloa tiene excelentes mariscos!

The more Mexican food I eat, the more I despise what we, the Anglos have done to it.

Mexican food is supposed to be simple. A blending of spices, fire/heat, meat, FLAVORS and little else.
Anything else, would be 'on the side' if even present.

Most of the dairy in Hispanic countries (traditionally) comes from goats and it is very difficult to extract cream from goat milk without a really good cream separator, which would not be found in most Mexican households, or by waiting several days. Cow milk on the other hand contains cream that is easily separated by just waiting a few hours for the cream to rise and dipping it off with a ladle. Few traditional Mexican families had cattle but most have/had goats. For that reason the cheese we use on TexMex is not a common part of real traditional Mexican food, and sour cream certainly not. The same is true for most of the other goop Americans tend to pile on top of their tacos. TexMex is closer to a French construct than Mexican, and what we see today as Mexican food, is so convoluted that the tastes are masked by all the other crap. Ground beef would rarely be found on a real Mexican or Central/South American taco or a real burrito, empanada or enchilada. Hispanics call their cheese queso and they refer to the kind of cheese Americans are used to by it's French name fromage. (chevre is a French name for goat cheese)

There is a young couple living in close proximity to me, he from San Salvador, and she of Mexican/Puerto Rico heritage. She is an extremely good maker of real Mexican food. I used her recipe to make Flan for my family's pre-Thanksgiving Mexican food (Wed evening before Thanksgiving ) get together. It is not for the timid cook but I managed it pretty well. Rich, sweet, decadent best describes it.

The 'star' of the meal is traditionally some aberration my niece always makes called 'taco soup' .
Mostly several different kinds of beans, some ground beef, throw in some chili powder and canned corn and that, is 'Mexican food'.

When I described that dish to my neighbors, they were both incredulous that it would be seen as Mexican food anywhere South of the Rio Bravo.

Where I used to live in South Florida, there was literally one Long John Silvers within a 200 mile location. You couldn't really do a Google Maps, as it didn't really work that way back in 2010. So there was really no way for me to know or see. Pretty much the last time I'd been to one (other than one in San Antonio) was when I was a teenager in the DC Metro Area. I used to also go to Arthur Treachers. But anyway... was pretty psyched to see it.

100%... the first time I realized that Mexican food was other than just central American land-food... was when I found this restaurant:

The Pearl of the Pacific: https://places.singleplatfo...co-6/menu?ref=google

I went there probably 30+ times when I lived in San Antonio... absolutely friggin' amazing. The quality of the food was really, really good. I will say though, the only thing I disliked was the packaging. The environmentally friendly part of me kind of prefers containers that can be recycled or biodegraded. There were large plastic containers, I mean huge plastic containers... only thing I'd change.


But yeah, Long John Silvers was way better than I remembered it. It was fantastic.

MJ... unless you are already fully aware of it... "New Mexican" food has become a passion of mine as well. It seems WAY different to me than normal Mexican food. It's from New Mexico, obviously... but relies far more heavily on green and red chilies, spicier, and feels healthier and generally isn't fried. There's also a lot of honey and other ingredients.

There was one off 281 between 410 and 1604 that went out of business. I think it's called Lucy Cooper's Texas Ice House now or something... which is just some ho-hum sports bar. But before that, it was a New Mexican restaurant. The food was absolutely fantastic, but no one... I mean no one ever went there. Every time I'd go, I was the only one there.
