5 Fresh Foods to Try Cinco De Mayo Weekend
Celebrate a Flavorful Cinco de Mayo
Cheers to Cinco de Mayo weekend! With margarita in hand, we are toasting to a weekend of flavorful food, refreshing drinks and lively festivities.
Do you know why we celebrate Cinco de Mayo? This annual holiday originated with the Mexican army’s victory over the French empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Over time, the holiday has grown widely commercialized, often featuring tasty food and plenty of tequila.
Stop by one of our three locations this weekend for these Mexican-inspired dishes.
Kick off the holiday weekend with an iconic Mexican snack: Nachos. Gooey melted cheese combines with crispy tortilla chips, creating an irresistible dish fit for a crowd.
Local to the Jacksonville area? Timoti’s offers nachos every Friday at all three locations. Gather a group of festive friends for a nacho-filled happy hour at Timoti’s Seafood Shak.
Another famous finger food, nobody can resist a classic taco. Tacos are a versatile treat, accommodating to all palettes with easily swapped proteins and toppings.
At Timoti’s, start by choosing between shrimp, mahi, tuna, chicken or tofu. Then, decide if you’d like that protein blackened, grilled or fried. Delight your taste buds with our black bean mango salsa for topping along with tomatoes, romaine, cabbage, cilantro and a kick of jalapeño aioli. Wrap it all up in a corn or flour tortilla and your stomach will thank you.
If you’re into big portions with little more tang and a little less spice, the Baja Box might be your jam this Cinco de Mayo.
Have your choice of shrimp, fish, chicken or tofu on a bed of fresh coconut rice. We top it off with avocado, greens, back bean salsa and tomatoes with cool cilantro ranch. Fresh and bright, this is the equivalent of a fiesta in your mouth.
The tastiness of a taco all wrapped up in a hearty burrito- that’s the T’s wrap. A popular Timoti’s item, the T’s wrap features your choice of protein with black bean mango salsa, pepper jack, greens, tomato, cilantro & jalapeño aioli. For when your appetite is ready to party.
Ceviche’s refreshing tropical flavors are best enjoyed on a sunny day with high spirits. It’s light, bright and won’t weigh you down in the spring heat. Your taste buds will burst with bright citrus flavors each and every bite. Not to mention, it’s the perfect way for us to showcase our fresh-caught seafood. This dish is so good, we only offer it for special occasions. Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with fresh ceviche, available for a limited time!
