With a craving for Latin cuisine, specifically Mexican, we revisited Zocalo on Stanhope. I love the ambiance, table side guacamole and the clear presence of the owner helping make the restaurant run well.
Guacamole En Molcajete guacamole dip made of mashed avocado, tomato, onion, cilantro, a pinch of salt and freshly fried chips. (The red tint of the previous photo was prior to adjusting the settings on my camera).
I’ve never had chilapitas before, sweet plantains stuffed with pulled pork, creme fraiche, avocado, pickled onions, chipotle and cotija cheese.
The Carne Asada charbroiled steak was really tender and I really enjoyed trying the poblano peppers, green rice and flour tortillas.
I had the Chile Relleno de Puerco. The Pan seared poblano peppers stuffed with pork was a bit heavy, but I enjoyed the queso fresco, served over salsa verde and rice.
