Dinner at @molepoblano2012
Fried Quesadillas w. Shrimp / Tacos (Chorizo, Tounge, Al Pastor) / Chilaquiles w. Carne Asada / Mole Enchiladas / Mojarra Al Ajillo / Arroz con Leche
Another hype worthy Mexican establishment in this city. Right away the heightened level is apparent when complimentary chips slathered with a soothingly rustic black bean sauce & bright pico are brought out instead of the standard plain chips & salsa.
From there on, the symphony of hits didn't let up. Tacos which shine in the care given to the meats: tender tounge, charred but moist well spiced chorizo, and delicious pork with just the right ratio of pineapples; Tamalex's housemade tortillas give them the edge in this category though. However, it is these fried quesadillas that deserve special attention. Thin but thoroughly crispy shells encasing generous amounts of avocado, crema, lettuce, cheese, and plump juicy shrimp. So good!
Among the main dishes, the mole enchiladas are a fantastic way to sample the restaurant's name worthy sauce. Cocoa and cinnamon flavors are primary but truly followed by the appropriately diverse supporting cast of spices without interference from overly assertive sugar. The fall apart tender chicken inside, moist (not chewy not mushy) hearty tortillas, and authentic melted cheese round out a delish package. You can skip the enchiladas: too wet without retained crunch, flat sauce, and carne asada without appreciable spice rub/marinade. But, please don't sleep on the fish! It is as good or better than the one served at (my beloved) Anastasi: delicate crunchy shell, unbelievably juicy flaky meat, and light/not oily with a brilliantly executed Ajillo paste. 👏👏👏
Service is top notch: kind, expedient, and friendly. Add in generous quality portions and the prices here make it an absolute steal.
Payed a little visit to @1812_osprey tonight and we were very impressed! Pictured is the butter chicken special, and we also had the bucatini, and bacon and curried deviled eggs. Everything was excellent! Tell them the platinum life sent you 😉 we will be going back for sure ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
