Don Jose Tienda visit - a bit disappointed

Disappointed hound | Mar 7, 2006 02:30 PM

Fellow hounds,

I went to Don Jose Tienda on Sunday.

I must confess I was a bit disappointed. Only one item was truly excellent (sopes with asada, and anything with asada), the rest was rather forgettable (and unbelievably greasy). Sope with chicharron was OK (the actual sope was great, the chicharron only so so). Red sauce was bland and runny. Green sauce was much much better. Biggest disappointment were the carnitas themselves: way too greasy, for one; the big chunks of fatty stuff should have been finely chopped, but weren't, for two.

Then again, I am Mexican, and hence spoiled in terms of Mexican food.
