Castro's Coffee Shop

I tried Castro's Coffee Shop in Fort Greene the other
night, based on Jim's book. WOW. Since I moved here
from San Francisco two years ago, I've been searching
in vain for just the right Mexican restaurant, and this
is it. The food was first-rate. The best mole sauce
I've had, and great guacamole. Everything was very un-
greasy. (The corn tortillas right out of the package
are the only disappointment.) And contrary Jim's
opinion of the atmosphere, I thought it was pretty
great in that respect. Must have had something to do
with all the men in big black hats drinking and playing
the jukebox. I am going to absolutely live at this
place from now on!
