Sonora Grill's shrimp caramelo: 50 Favorite Dishes, no. 25
Undeniable cravings straight ahead
It's almost a crime that these little delights are only $3.50. They could charge more. Corn tortillas are griddled until blistered and toasty. Fresh, fat shrimp are coated in a tempura batter and fried. They are then bathed in a tart-hot Buffalo-style sauce that will make your tongue burn and the corners of your jaw twitch in sour delight. Those massive, juicy shrimp are piled on top of cabbage shreds and gilded with a few slices of fresh, green jalapenos. It's the unholy love child of bar food favorites. It's impossible to pass up.
