Cecelia has been going to Palo Alto Sol for ten years. She likes the mole fine, but the thing that really floats her boat is their pure pollo al guajillo. The chicken itself is variable in quality, but the sauce is always fabulous–mellow, complex, and deeply chile, without being spicy. That guajillo always satisfies, in all the dishes that use it.
The salsas are showstoppers, too–a fresh, chunky tomatillo, and a smoky salsa of roasted peppers.
