Angela's Cafe

cubbie | May 16, 2010 10:00 PM

I've been to Angela's before (after seeing rave reviews from veteran 'hounds) and was blown away the first time I went there.

Last time was a mixed bag. We got there around 9pm on Saturday, and were seated relatively quickly.

We ordered:

Guacamole : fantastic! good chunks, fresh, not over mixed

Favoritos de Angela
Chicken Mole Gordita,
Tinga Tostada, Arabe Taco, Ceviche Tostada, and Al Pastor Taco.

- a general positive- the Ceviche was raved about. The Tinga Tostada got a meh- I suspect it was first prepped and suffered from that.

Mole with the pork loin- This was the dish that confused. Last time, it was amazing- rich complexity of the sauce that lingered, with the meat being tender, moist, and fantastic.

This time, however, the meat was dry. The sauce, had it been fantastic, could have helped redeem it, but the sauce seemed one note, compared to last time.

Has anyone else noticed this or did I just get unlucky?
