Chilpancingo review

messycook | Feb 1, 200404:36 PM

Three of us were taken out to dinner here (my pick! I'm proud to say) and everyone was very happy with it. The margaritas were fantastic, served icy and straight up. The little on-the-house sample of guacamole was good enough to wish there was a LOT more. I can't remember the names of the dishes in spanish, so I'll just describe in plain english. We each had an entree, tasting each others' as we went: florida shrimp were sweet and tender; seafood stew was garlicky, lemony, with many pieces of seafood, including calamari that was super soft. Roasted pork was served inside a split adobo (?) pepper with a creamy, but sort of mole-y sauce around it, sprinkled with pomegranite seeds. This was my favorite. The last dish was ostrich, which was perfectly cooked to medium rare, with a thick, unctuous mole sauce that I wanted to lick off the plate. All 4 of us shared crepes with sweet and tangy goat cheese filling and caramel sauce spread over the top. A few fresh berries and some slices of plantain decorated and were quickly scooped up with the luscious sauce.

They are doing a prix fixe for Valentines day - I think it is 75 with accompanying wines. With this quality I think that's a good deal.
