Best Dishes at Mexique

I'm visiting Chicago this weekend and have reservations at Mexique on Sunday evening. I've checked out the menu and am already torn between several dishes. Can anyone comment on what you think are the can't miss dishes at Mexique?

  1. I really enjoyed the dessert enchiladas. Can't recall what starter or main I had, so must not have been that spectacular.

      Thanks! It's between this one and the avocado cream and strawberry compote. I think the chocolate is going to win.

    2. I really loved the braised short ribs. Extremely tender, not overly fatty; they throw it on the grill at the last minute to put a nice thin slight crispiness on the outer edge.

      1. They do a French onion/poblano soup that we loved.

          Thanks! I'm between this dish, the betabel, and the trio of sopes.
