GREAT Mexican food

Posted on 08 / 16 / 2014

One of the top-rated restaurants in Salt Lake City and for a good reason. The food is fantastic and very authentic.

Vegetarian options are plentiful and with a few modifications many of the options can be made vegan.

Veg options aren't marked but the staff seems to know what they're talking about. Once you get your food you don't care anymore--so good!

Pros: Great food, Authentic Mexican, Fun atmosphere
Cons: Long wait, Veg options aren't marked

Very good Mexican

Posted on 03 / 11 / 2014

This restaurant serves a number of vegetarian options, some that you'll find at any Mexican restaurant (cheese enchilladas, chile relleno) and others that are harder to come by.

They specialize in mole and have several different types with a variety of flavors (not just the well known version). All moles can be made with vegetables instead of the meat. You can ask for a sampler where they bring out all the moles for you to taste.

We've eaten here four times. The only dish we didn't like was the chile relleno, which was pedestrian. Otherwise, all the dishes are good and interesting variations on the traditional Mexican staples.

This place is very popular, and the wait can be very long. The seating area is small and you must wait outside. The inside is cramped and can be loud.

Pros: Mole, Diverse vegetarian selection
Cons: Long wait
