This week's Taco Tuesday took us on a trek to see our neighbors in the north.

Details: The head chef at Teocalli Cocina, a modern Mexican eatery in the heart of Old Town Lafayette, has been cooking traditional Mexican dishes since his childhood in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca — and it shows.

What to order: The Tijuana-style shrimp tacos

  • Cost: $10 for two
  • What makes them special: The crispy charred taco shells provide the perfect casing for the juicy grilled shrimp, which are cooked in chipotle butter and topped with lime and fresh cucumber that brighten and bring the dish together.
  • Be smart: Go ahead and get three. You won't regret it.
