Los Potrillos, Santa Fe. Erm. .. Okay. .

The reviews are raving, but the food doesn't measure up.

The trio of salsas they serve at the beginning were silly. The guacamole (I think. It was green, anyway, and didn't taste like green chile) tasted like sour cream with cucumbers and onion. The chipotle stuff was OK, as was the third choice, but I'd have preferred just a dish of nice, fresh salsa.

Main course was the pollo en mole. Mole is supposed to be a rich, rather savory, though slightly sweet chocolate-based sauce. This tasted more like someone melted a Hershey bar over the chicken. It didn't taste bad, entirely, but was too sweet, and did not taste as mole should. The accompanying corn tortillas, on the other hand, were fantastic. Fresh and soft, and exactly how they're supposed to be, and how you almost never find them in the USA.

The margarita was good, though. Fresh limes obvious in the drink. Might go here for drinks, but there are better places for food.
