Café Coyote Add a New Favorite Taco

Café’s Coyote is introducing a new Langostino Lobster Taco and it is awesome!

Details:

Langostino Taco-Two soft corn tortillas stuffed with breaded and deep-fried langostino lobster, creamy chipotle sauce, with cabbage and salsa fresca. Served with beans and Mexican style rice for the incredible price of $12.95.

The Spanish word Langostino has different meanings in different parts of the world. In the United States, we use this word to refer to the delicious meat of the squat lobster.  However, in Spain, it may refer to a variety of species of prawn. Where as in Cuba it refers to crayfish, whereas in South America, it refers to red shrimp.

There are two species of squat lobster found along the California coast. Despite looking like lobsters, they’re more closely related to hermit crabs. Unlike their relatives, squat lobsters don’t carry shells with them on their backs. Instead, they squeeze into small crevices along the ocean floor and leave their sharp claws exposed to keep predators away.

Squat lobsters also hide under rocks to protect themselves. Safe from hungry fish and lobsters, they wait for snacks to settle nearby and then use their sharps claws to reach out and pick off that which passes by.

Two cool facts about squat lobsters:

1.) Squat lobsters’ arms grow to be several times the length of their body.

2.) Squat lobsters sometimes steal food from sea anemones. Sea anemones look like plants but they are really animals that eat meat.

Taco Tuesday at Café Coyote

Café Coyote will celebrate Taco Tuesdays with $2 tacos every Tuesday from 3:30 p.m. until close.
