Acapulco (Tampa)

I was hoping to write just a quick post that Acapulco Grocery is now serving mole but I discovered that there is no thread dedicated to Acapulco. With Taqueria Monterrey now gone, we should definitely have a thread for Acapulco. I am a long time fan of the tripa, buche (here means sweetbreads), and carnitas huaraches. The tripa huarache is without a doubt one of my favorite dishes in Tampa. The green and red salsas at Acapulco are equally delicious. It's good that the huaraches come two to an order so that I can be egalitarian with the salsas. Really what I wanted to talk about was the mole that just made it back on the menu on Wednesdays (but not this upcoming Wednesday 6/27). The mole poblano comes smothered over chicken and along side yellow rice and beans. A stack of handmade tortillas accompany the dish to sop up every last drop. You will be glad they do. I have been desperate for someone to serve a good mole in the area for a long time. I am glad to finally have a place to go to satisfy this craving.
