The tortilla's thinness makes it ideal for folding, sliding under closed doors, and illustrating theories that the Earth is flat and made of corn. Voyage to the edge of deliciousness with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $24 worth of coastal Mexican cuisine at La Calle Doce, valid at the West 12th Street and Skillman Street locations.
La Calle Doce's menu merges succulent seafood and tantalizing spices in authentic recipes from Acapulco, Veracruz, and other seaside sources. Chilled ceviche takes advantage of free swim to meld lime-juice-doused morsels of fish with tomato, onion, and cilantro ($9.95). The pescado a la parrilla suffuses a whole grilled catfish with herbs and spices ($13.95), and the camarón à la veracruzana teams sautéed shrimp with a quartet of bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, and cilantro ($14.95) before they break up to seek solo careers in bowls of pico de gallo. A range of beef, chicken, and traditional Tex-Mex dishes curb tastes for the terrestrial, and a variety of classic Mexican drinks, such as horchata ($2.50+) and tamarindo ($2.50+), subdue spicy selections.
