The style of cooking in Nuevo Laredo is heavily influenced by that of the neighboring state of Nuevo Leon and consists mainly of delicious tacos made from grilled meat, juicy baby goat ''al pastor'', flour tortillas, and ''machacado'' which is scrambled eggs with tasty Mexican-style beef jerky. Soups and stews are also common in this Northern border city, especially those cooked with pork. A taco should always be covered in hot sauce, and the people of Nuevo Laredo definitely follow this rule, with red, green, orange and even brown sauces decorating the dishes and spicing up the flavors of the city. Seafood in Nuevo Laredo is not as common as poultry, baby goat, pork and beef; nevertheless, there are a few restaurants that offer delicious dishes prepared with fresh seafood brought directly from the Mexican Gulf.
