This is why I write. I am very lucky to eat the way I do and know the Chefs I know. As much as I love Monchong with tangerine salt and anything with snail butter from Chef Willy this is again what I relish. Family recipes passed down from generations. Do not go here and get a carne asada burrito, talk to the family, because that is who you will be dealing with. The mother cooks the son and daughter run the front of house.
A modest interior hides what is really going on. On a side note the eldest son is a professional boxer.
I just said cook me something you love. She thought about it and it paid off.
She asked me if I wanted to see how my food was being made. Yes, please and thank you.
A starter bonus dish. Soup made from the braise that my main was cooked in with star pasta. I felt like a little kid, this meal brought me back to my childhood. This what food is supposed to do.
The menu..I do not see what I ate on there. They do .99 cent fish tacos as well.
Hands down the best chili relleno I have ever had. The fry? perfect, the bell pepper still had a crunch and was fresh. The sides flawless. I was told this was her mother’s and her mother’s and her mother’s recipe …it showed.
Then I was asked do want to try her flan she made this morning? You can not say no to that.
Yep, and then this. Perfect.
Look I do not preach a lot but this place needs to be supported. You do not get this very often. They are lucky that a new Crunch Fitness is about to open in the same plaza along with a something I am not supposed to talk about gourmet doughnut place.
I tipped heavy and walked out spending $20 dollars a steal for what I ate.
Go, talk, eat. nuff said!
