La Mixteca Chowdown Napa

kare_raisu | Oct 13, 2009 05:27 PM

It was great seeing my old chow pal Melanie again and meeting Frank and Dan for a wonderful Sunday lunch in Napa at one of the best regional Mexican restaurants in the North Bay.

We Ordered:

> Suadero Tacos
> Barbacoa Tacos
> Mole de Res
> Chileajo de Puerco
> Consomee de Barbacoa

I've had suadero tacos before - but these are different and better - they are crispy well seasoned and you need to get these when you come here.

Barbacoa tacos were not bad - I've just been spoiled by barbacoa specialist restaurants in Tijuana and San Diego.

Mole de Res - is what I think Eat Nopal would Identify as a wet - soupier mole de olla, with tender braised beef and really good poached calabicitas

Chileajo de Puerco, easily the best Mexican dish I've had in the San Francisco Bay area

Consomme was really weak - I would pass.

Agua de Pepino _ I cant seem to ever make mine as perfect as Mixtecas.

Thanks guys for trekking out spending that lunch with you all really made my trip.
