Fodor's Expert Review Casa 43 Mexican Kitchen and Tequila Bar

$$ Seven Mile Beach Mexican Fodor's Choice
Mariachi music, sombreros, and intricate Talavera tile work set the tone at this authentic and innovative Mexican eatery tucked away off West Bay Road. Start with the savory ceviches (winners include Caribbean shrimp, Peruvian-style red snapper, and tuna Chino-Latino in soy with sesame, chile, mint, and cilantro). Or try such terrific tacos as the Tecate-battered rock shrimp, chicharrón, or fish. Sterling main courses range from salmon quesadilla to a pork chop in tamarind-orange-chipotle reduction. But the two musts are the delectable duck confit chilaquiles and fabulous torta de cochinita pibil (suckling pig sandwich) brimming with avocado, refried beans, pickled onions, and roasted tomato aioli, served with a heaping helping of the signature chili fries. Wash it down with magnificent margaritas.
