Wow. Best Enchiladas- Riques Regional Mexican (uptown) | Sep 18, 2004 06:10 PM

I have read about this place, and have put it off because the location is out of the way. Sooo glad I went last night. They serve warm chips with refried black beans when you sit down- delicious!

The best thing on the menu is the Enchiladas Entomatadas- this (very elusive) way of preparing enchiladas begins with a simmered/reduced tomato sauce loaded with garlic and onions to create a paste. The paste is then smeeered onto the tortiallas, fried to sear in the flavor and then stuffed with roasted chicken. I would have to make this myself at home when I had the craving... no longer.

This place is a real gem! Sketchy neighborhood, though.
