Mama Chuy: the best sopes in the District

hamster | Jan 1, 2012 08:45 AM

So a new Mexican place opened across from Howard University and it is delightful. The prices are low and they seem to take real pride in their food. We went there last Friday, where apparently they had been slammed with customers all day long after this article in the WaPo:

I sampled the guacamole, which was notably good (a bit chunky, lots of cilantro and lime); pico de gallo (good); carne asada tacos (eh, quite dry and not worth re-ordering); pastor tacos (yum, pineapple in the meat?); carnitas *sopes* (!) which were *awesome*; and chicken sope (eh, the chicken was not great). We also had some Modelos, which rounded off the meal quite nicely. The staff was absolutely charming and eager to explain everything on the menu. I will definitely return for the pork and the sopes, which I have not seen on any menus at the taco places here in the District.
