Hate to start another PX Mexican food thread but, are there any Mexican restaurants in the metro which serve other than Sonoran style food, excluding Dos Molinos and the other New mexican style places?
We're looking for Michocan (sp?) cooking with things like pork geen chili, or carnitas (slow roasted pork butt in chili verde. The spices and herbs used give an entirely different flavor to the food,beef enchiladas with shredded meat and a red sauce that is rich and not bland like most of the ones we've tried or savory tacos with the same sort of sauce?
Don't know about any Michoacanense places, but there are some non-Sonoran options around. Restaurante Huachinango specializes in dishes typical of Puebla and the DF. Likewise, Restaurant Mexico bills its food as central Mexican style. I believe La Barquita is run by folks from Sinaloa and/or Nayarit. I don't know if any of this really helps, though.
