MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Chiapas. Puebla. San Luis Potosí. One can literally taste the regions and cities that Chef Cosme Aguilar’s menu explores, and many dishes honor his mother’s memory with recipes from his childhood. A steady stream of hungry diners seek out this rather small, tasteful dining room for welcoming and hospitable service, as well as soul-warming, straightforward fare. Aim for the large, fantastic communal table. Start your meal with hearty rajas con crema, combining none-too-spicy poblanos with sweet, fresh corn, Mexican sour cream and cheese served alongside a stack of tortillas. Tender chicken enchiladas with mole de Piaxtla may induce swooning, thanks to a sauce that is unexpectedly sweet yet heady with bitter chocolate, raisins, almonds, cloves, cinnamon, chilies, garlic and sesame. Its seductive texture has a mesmerizing depth of flavor and no matter what it's paired with, it's always a winner. Expect the chamorro de borrego al huaxamole to arrive falling off the bone and redolent of epazote, allspice and pulla chilies. Its fruity-spicy broth is drinkable. Every bit of every spongy and buttery layer of the cow and goat’s milk pastel tres leches is absolutely worth the indulgence.
