Shrimp Ceviche Tostada at Mariscos La Jaibita in Bossier City

Also recommended are the ceviche tostada appetizers, available in fish, shrimp, or octopus. The favorite among my group was the fish - a delicious blend of fresh, white fish meat, lime juice, salsa, cilantro, and avocado piled high on a crunchy tostada. The shrimp ceviche was also very good. Affordable at $6.50, the tostada appetizers are large enough to order as entrees. I tried the shrimp fajitas and found them to be a good value at $12 - large, tail-and-shell-on grilled shrimp served atop a mound of caramelized peppers and onions and served with tortillas, rice, beans, and guacamole.
After eating, take a moment and explore the carniceria (a Mexican-style butcher shop) located next door, which also sells imported candies, snacks, sodas, etc. that you won't find too many places around town. It pays off to try new things in Shreveport-Bossier's rapidly-diversifying restaurant scene. Maybe next time, I'll have the octopus?
