The Little One Restaurant Review

: Yes, some say it’s noisy (it is). And yes, you may have to wait for a table (sharing tables is encouraged). But don’t let either point deter you from dining at The Little One. Once you dig into the chicken mole or the chile Colorado you won’t care. The latter comes in chicken, pork and beef versions, but we almost always order the mole anyway. Deep, dark and savory, this dish will linger in your memory for a long time. Like its big sister Café Poca Cosa, you can always let the kitchen choose your lunch. Every dish comes with a salad, beans and corn tortillas; the salad dressing that’s on the table is tasty. Breakfast is also popular --- the tamal de elote (green chiles and cheese mixed into creamy masa) is a local favorite.
