Very good New Mexican food a few blocks east of the Plaza. Rarely a wait and the food is consistently good. Some of the best green chile chicken enchiladas in town.

The staff was very nice and welcoming. The food was amazing, kind of pricey, but still amazing. The lamb and mushroom burrito is great. I also got the guacamole and chips, very good! Again, a little pricey, but worth the trip.

Hello! We have been told we make an outstanding Mole. We make Mole Poblano and serve it with turkey but you could sub it out for chicken if that is your preference.
