La Cabanita Restaurant Review

: La Cabañita is a little, family-run establishment with a strong following, including many folks from well beyond its north Glendale neighborhood. The restaurant's décor is laden with clichés---sombreros, serapes and neon beer signs---but tables topped in Spanish tile and hanging Tiffany lamps contribute to a homey atmosphere. The menu, featuring the kind of cooking one might find in a Mexico City home, is anything but a series of clichés. Tacos de rajas con crema (a creamy dip laced with poblano pepper strips, onions and black beans, served with homemade tortillas) make a rich, indulgent starter. Popular entrées include pork chops in pasilla chile sauce and soulful chiles en nogada (poblano chiles stuffed with ground beef, pine nuts and dried fruit, topped with a sensual white wine cream sauce, sprinkled with pomegranate seeds for accent). Desserts include a creamy flan (sans caramel sauce) and an empanada oozing guava and cream cheese.
