It was time for another sunday outing, and I didn’t have to pick this one! Whoo! E actually picked mexican at Moctezuma which is right off of Washington Ave. Compared to some of the taqueria joints in the neighborhood, this place could be considered fancy. They actually have tablecloths! Here we have the requisite complimentary chips and salsa. To my surprise, these weren’t corn tortilla chips, they were flour! And they seemed to be home fried flour tortilla chips. While I prefer corn, this was a nice diversion from the norm. Both of the salsas were quite spicy. So beware! The red one was particularly smoky and the green tasted like it had habanero in it. These salsas were awesome.
E had heard great things about the tortilla soup, so she had to have it. The moctezuma version is served along with cheese, pasilla pepper, cream avocado, and tomato juice. And it’s quite a sizeable bowl! She really liked this and had plenty to take home.
E also got the Tacos Dorados, which are chicken tacos rolled in a corn tortilla, topped with cream, cheese and lettuce. They are also served with beans and “mexican salsa”, which just seems like guacamole to me. These little guys are more like taquitos and not traditional tacos, for those of you that are into that type of thing.
I got the enchiladas verde. This is such a wonderfully simply prepared dish. Corn tortillas are filled with chicken, smothered with green sauce, cream, queso fresco, and topped with sliced onions. And it’s served with the most delicious and buttery rice. Man, I could eat t his all the time.
Service was great. The server was super friendly and helpful and seemed really happy that we were there. We were definitely the only non-mexicans in the place. He even asked us how we found out about the place and gave us business cards so that we could give them out to friends. The prices are very reasonable and you get plenty of delicious and fresh food. Plus, you get to watch random things on their flat screen like the Fugitive or Stuart Little, dubbed in spanish!
