El Huarache Azteca

Finally found my way here last night ... there were five of us so we could try a pretty good selection of things. We must have had 12 or 13 plates on the table at one point. Loved the huarache mole (chicken, I think) - it had a nice complexity and a hint of far the most popular treat of the evening - we ordered a second one even. The gorditas was also a big hit - comes with a potato/chorizo filling I think. The chicken tinga was also tasty. I liked the chicharron (sp?) also ... had a little bit of chew to it, which I liked. The pambazos had that great reddish hue to it and the bread had a very nice crunch to it Except for the mole, the seasoning of the food is on the mild side - you can use the red or green sauce or the bottles sauces to adjust the heat level to your liking. Each table also has a little bottle of Clasico Nescafe Coffee Crystals. (mmm?) The huitlacoche was OK - mildly interesting - a little bit goes a long way for me. The nopales had more texture (smooth/slippery) than taste but I think that's more the norm? Didn't have enough appetite left to try the flan or any other dessert.....
In a nod toward multi-culturism, there was the Cantonese station playing on the TV.
