Westchester hounds who know their Mexican food say there’s something right and true going on at Que Chula es Puebla.
This slightly dressed-up restaurant—part of what appears to be a cluster of newish Mexican spots in Sleepy Hollow—has a way with chicken. Standouts include chicken in enchiladas, with vegetables in tequila sauce, and steamed in parchment with a guajillo-pasilla sauce. Other winners are guacamole (made at tableside), pork tamales, and a well-balanced ceviche.
The menu is more varied than most, and prices are gentle (entrées mostly in the teens, with only a couple of seafood rice dishes topping $20). Service is friendly, the setting comfortable and inviting. “While it’s not a ’luxe’ restaurant,” Westjanie writes, “it does have tablecloths, etc., and is clearly not intended as a workmen’s lunch place. … All of us are eager to go back.”
