Local Mexican Fare May 13, 2013
To most Americans that live anywhere besides the Mexican border states, we have a certain impression of what Mexican food is and should be. Often this is based on trips to the local Taco Bell or On the Border chain restaurants. Perhaps you go to a more personal, independantly operated Mexican restaurant, such as my personal favorite, Viva Zapata's in Westport, CT. Not that this isn't real Mexican food, but this is typically either "border" food, or the dishes have been "Americanized". I closest to authentic Mexican I found in my area is the Oaxaca Grill in New Haven, CT. It has a nice slection of different Moles and authentic taco selections. Southern Mexican food is quite different and also quite good. Such dishes as venison tostadas, mole, goat leg fajitas, ant eggs, etc... are these delicacies that you will not find in Chiles!! Los Almendros is a great place to go to sample such food. Their specialy is actually the Yucatan Peninsula. My experiences (4 visits) were top notch starting right off the bat with the arrival of the Tequila cart all the way through the desert cart. Try the Flan!! UPDATE: 2nd Trip to Los Almendros was even better than the first. Not only did we have a bigger crew, but we sampled some of the more exclusive Tequilas on the cart (my personal favorite was the Herradura Reposa) and Escamoles (ant eggs) were in season. This is on my list of places to go back to. UPDATE: 3rd trip earned Los Almendros a spot on my favorite restaurants of the world list.
