More then just spicy Mexican in the Bronx

beke | Feb 7, 200703:32 PM     2

I usually pass on Mexican, but the aromas drifting out into the Parkchester neighborhood were too good to pass up. My meal began with freshly made corn tortilla chips with a red and green salsa. When I asked the waiter if the salsa was going to be too hot for me he shrugged and said, "I'm Mexican." Feeling a little apprehensive, I dipped my chip only to be pleasantly surprised at the range of flavours. The hot chocolate was made with freshly steamed milk. The beautiful decor and gracious welcome of the manager temped me to try Chicken Mole........ok....it's HOLY MOLE! Laughing, I can't describe the dish, but the variety of flavours dancing across my tongue had me grinning like an idiot and making lots of wonderfully appreciative sounds. I'll definitely be back to this new local restaurant Taqueria Tlaxcalli
