My broken record: Pozole in New Rochelle

Pat Hammond | Jan 25, 2004 11:36 AM

The Little Mexican Cafe at 581 Main St. was again calling my name yesterday, I swung by for a take out order of red pozole. After several experiences with this "weekend only" soup, I think that Sunday is the better day to get it. Like any slow simmered dish, the extra day makes for an even more deeply flavorful stock.

While I waited yesterday, I saw a bowl of seafood soup on it's way out to the dining room. It looked terrific. A red stock brimming with mussels, clams, squid, and chunks of crab bodies (maybe some pieces of fish too). Next time.

This is a fine place to bring children. They dote on my two very young grandchildren. The older of the two especially likes watching the guys play pool. He likes the black beans with rice and was getting impatient waiting for takeout, so I asked for a few tortilla chips for him to munch. The young woman at the bar FILLED a big bag for him. We kept saying "stop!", but she just smiled.

There's probably better Mexican food in New Rochelle, but how will I ever know?
