Barbacoa de Borrego - Cotati

kare_raisu Jul 28, 2007 03:52 PM

I found a second locale to indulge during the weekends in the roasted / steamed lamb meat dish typical of central Mexico ( the first being the nearby hole in the wall, La Plaza Garibaldi).

The restaurant is called La Famiglia and It is located in the same shopping center as the korean market on Commerce just N of the Cotati downtown.

Apperently the owners are from Mexico city and also specialize in Huaraches.

Other interesting items on the menu include Mole Verde, Pambazos, Posole and Adobo.

The owner also mentioned making Mixiotes the weekend previous.

    I love the Mole Verde at La Familia. Sort of nutty (from the pumpkin seeds?) a little bit spicy, thick enough to really coat the meat well so that it's easy to scoop up plenty of sauce into a tortilla...

    Whenever we go in there for lunch during the week the place is pretty empty though; maybe us and one other group in the whole place.

    A lot of the special items they only do friday nights and/or on the weekends, so I've never had a chance to try the Pozole, for instance.

    Everything else I've had there was good, too...

      Haven't run across mixiote around here for some years now, can't wait to try it. I've been in that shopping center numerous times, and I'm sure I've browsed the posted menu, but somehow managed to miss seeing those dishes. I love pambazos, can't believe I didn't see it.
