Last weekend (9/23/18) was all about the food. We have recently landed in Harlingen, TX. We haven’t had the chance to do much exploring, but we have sampled some tasty cuisine. On Friday evening, we headed out to The Oyster Bar. It’s not a fancy place, but the food is tasty and that’s all matters.
Dinner was the stuffed shrimp plate and the 2 skewer fish dinner with beach drinks. Fried food isn’t normally part of the daily diet and thankfully it wasn’t greasy. Despite the meal being fried, it was very tasty.
Saturday morning we headed to McAllen, TX to run a few errands. While we were out, we stopped by Rex Cafe and Bakery for breakfast. It’s local diner that’s been around since the 1940s. The place was packed, but there were two open seats at the counter. Spanish was the language of communication. Our limited skill level was put to the test when we ordered our breakfast.
The chicken migas I ordered was the best authentic Mexican meal I’ve ever had. From my research, migas means tortillas. The tortillas were homemade that morning and so good.
Being so far south means plenty of authentic Mexican food and abundant amounts of fresh seafood. I’m a happy camper!
