What to eat at Xochitl?
Ever since they opened, they've had a dish called Chiles en Nogada. As described on their site:
"Poblano pepper stuffed with ground beef, dried fruit and nuts, with a creamy walnut sauce and pomegranate"
It's served at room temperature.
This doesn't sound like something I'd like at all--I'm not into sweet dishes, creamy sauces, or ground beef--but this dish is outstanding albeit rich. Someone in your party should order it and you should try it.
The sopes are great, too. They also have a cocktail I love call Senior Borega. It's tequila, lime juice, sugar, jalepeno and fresh thyme. I never order cocktails but I can't get enough of these, even at $10 a pop.
