Abondigas de pollo

Johnny One-Note here, again extolling Restaurante Amanecer Tipatio for Mexican dishes--including on-the-spot made tortillas--you can't get anywhere else in Joliet. One of today's specials was abondigas de pollo, three tennis-ball sized meatballs made of chicken in a flavorful, glistening chicken broth also holding potatoes and carrots. The chicken-balls, spuds, and carrots weren't mushy but did cut easily with a spoon. Another special was chicken in mole verde, hearty but not strongly flavored. Amanecer Tipatio is a congenial, small, family-run restaurant that's finally giving Jolietans fare beyond tacos and enchiladas. Closed Tuesday, open 10 to 9 M, W, Th, and Sun, later on F and Sat. SW corner of Collins and Liberty. One of tomorrow's specials is tortas de cameron con nopales, for I saw Senora Aleman, the owner, cleaning cactus today.
