Mexican Find in Sleepy Hollow

We ate this weekend at a new restaurant in Sleepy Hollow called Que Chula es Puebla. Coincidentally, it's right across the street from the sort-of-hard-to-find Greek restaurant recently touted here. My husband, who has been spending a good bit of time in Mexico during the last several years (for business purposes, and eating with Mexican associates,) declares it truly authentic.

The menu is more varied than other restaurants around and the meals we ate very tasty and nearly universally successful. We were a group of four and we ate "dinner" type dishes for the most part (as opposed to tacos, sopes, tortas, etc.) We started out sharing guacamole (made at tableside to order in a molcajete) and quesito fundido: very good. -- And, by the way, pursuant to other recent posts about NR, there were tortilla chips and a decent, tho tame, salsa gratis. The entrees were pollo al tequila (half a chicken with a mix of vegetables in a tequila based sauce,) mixiote de pollo (steamed in parchment with a guajillo and pasilla sauce,) a shrimp, scallop and lobster brochette (shrimp and scallops were cooked perfectly, lobster was tough,) and a combo plate of beef flautas and chile relleno (chile, stuffed with cheese, was deemed bland.) The chicken dishes were VERY tasty. Beers and sangria are available: there is a big bar, but I'm not sure if they have a more comprehensive liquor license. They've apparently only been open 3 months.

All of us are eager to go back and try other items from the extensive menu. By the way, they have both lunch and dinner menus -- the lunch one, not surprisingly, featuring more tacos and tortas.

Their address is 180 Valley St., Sleepy Hollow.
