Okay, I walked into a fave Mexican restaurant in Long Beach and wondered how their chilaquiles would be, but I noticed folks eating an item off the menu--the Carne en su Jugo, a tomatillo based soup with beef, a little bacon for favoring, and great white beans. It came with a side of roasted jalapenos, cabbage, radishes, onions and cilantro, and of course, lemons and tortillas.
It was the most delicious thing I'd ever had, with a little salty tomatillo sauce blending so well with the beef and the smoky favor of the bacon. I squeezed lemon all over it--it did have a bit of a bite--but I had an agua fresca de mango--a cool sweet drink that smoothed it all out. My partner had the chilaquiles, which were good but they were really spicy, and boy, she can usually eat jalapenos in everything. The coffee de olla was spiced with cinnamon. It a little place, but I've always enjoyed the food here.
I think our bill was 12 bucks altogether.
