Mexican in Detroit West/Northwest Suburbs
I am looking for good Mexican place to take a coworker from Korea. Ideally this place would be in the West/Northwest suburbs. He's staying in Novi, but have little faith there is good mexican in Novi, and no, border cantina does not make the cut. The type of place I am looking for should have things like carnitas, lengua tacos, cabeza tacos, maybe homemade mole dishes, tamales.
Any help would be much appreciated.
El Nibble Nook is good.... I guess it would be more in the Tex-Mex arena than classic Mexican, but if that's what you're looking for it's a good option.
Two locations near Novi, though the West Bloomfield location is probably closer.
I really like their Super Botana Dana with chicken as an appetizer... or I have often made it my main course.
I've posted many times in the past for my love of El Nibble Nook. But I would hesitate to recommend it to someone seeking authentic Mexican. No carnitas or cabeza to be found there, as the poster is requesting. I am not a cabeza fan, but I do love good carnitas. Actually, carnitas is a dish that I don't have a "go to" spot for, so I guess I better get on that.
Good tamales, mole, menudo, etc. can be found in Ypsi at La Fiesta Mexicana, if you feel like getting out of Novi. There are quite a few great vegetarian dishes there, and the focus is not on the more, I would say, esoteric dishes. The owners are very gracious and good at what they do.
