yummy dinner at Babita tonight

After reading the posts on Babita, I finally made it there tonight and was definitely not disappointed.

I went with a friend, and we ordered the shrimp topolobampo and the chiles en nogada to share. The shrimp was tasty and spicy, but unfortunately was shadowed by the taste of the chiles en nogada. I must say, it's simply a fantastic infusion of flavors--fruity, yet savory... hard to describe. I literally cleaned the plate with their lovely and freshly homemade tortilla. The green chile was stuffed with braised pork, potato and dried fruits, covered with a sauce consists of pecan or walnut and goat cheese, garnished with pomegranate. It's not cheap for a stuffed chile, $23, but well worth it. The waitress said that they are working with their last batch of pomegranate right now, and won't be available until august. The waitress was also really nice and friendly. The place was small and cozy. Overall, it was a very enjoyable dinner.
