A tucked-away Mexican gem in Belmont

Trina | Apr 20, 2006 08:38 PM

I recently found out that the owners of La Morenita in Palo Alto (corner of Homer and Emerson) are changing the restaurant's name to La Higuerita and have opened up a second location at 520 Masonic Way in Belmont. The latter location is in this nondescript complex behind an AM/PM gas station and thus totally easy to miss, but the food at both places features that home-cooked, hole-in-the-wall goodness that, for me, defines Mexican food.

I highly recommend that Chowhounds go check these places out (especially for the pollo a la parilla, or the beef enchiladas in red sauce). The horchata's pretty good, too.
