we could not do without the dish where our best known spirit becomes playful. in this place, where the favorite son of the Mexican soil, tequila, is venerated, fused with chile de arbol, a little butter, his majesty the garlic & the peaceful lime juice. you may select either
Mole Poblano
spanish colonialism had been the imposing force for decades, yet through inter-marriage a new culture gradually emerged--the mestizo. in the city of puebla, several convents were active in creating much of the traditional Mexican cooking, as we know it today. one such convent was expecting a visit by a distinguished archbishop. a nun decided to serve a sauce known by the nahuatl indians as "mulli". however "mulli" is a potpourri of hot chiles. knowing the holy man was not accustomed to spicy dishes, she set to the task of adding ingredients that would counteract the chiles: chile ancho, dorado bread, tomato, cloves, bitter chocolate, chile poblano, peanuts, sugar, almonds, chile guajillo, fried tortillas, chile chalaca, carrots & garlic. this very combination makes a mole poblano a truly rich & complex sauce. a succulent boiled chicken breast exalted from the past. served with rice & refried beans.

Filete Grito
"grito" means shout. this dish brings out a cry of joy when tasted, confirming the high degree of culinary creativity that exists in Mexico. the cactus leaf is a bed with the tropical tamarindo sauce inviting the chile chipotle to participate as a witness in the lynching of the fabulous filet mignon, along with the chiles serranos.rice, guacamole & refried beans as garnish.
Chile Relleno
Cheese or picadillo prepared with onions, garlic, laurel & original spices stuffed inside a poblano pepper which is egg batter fried.Presented in our traditional red sauce topped with fresh cream.
