Ask any chef in Charleston where they go for authentic Mexican food in town and the answer is La Norteña. Hailing from the central region of Jalisco, the western-Pacific area in Mexico, the specialties here include numerous seafood dishes, including octopus ceviche, whole fried tilapia, shrimp veracruzano, and five house-made salsas and hot sauces brought to your table when you first sit down. Other recommended authentic items not to be found at your Americanized joints are Menudo, a honeycomb tripe soup, tortas, and tacos callejeros (street tacos served on corn tortillas with cilantro, onion, and a lime on the side).
