Mi Tierra Cafe y Panaderia Restaurant Review: Mi Tierra was established in 1941, and its resolutely northern Mexican cuisine evolved over the years to accommodate American tastes. Enchiladas, for example, morphed into a cheese-filled and decorated dish making much of a meat gravy flavored with comino and spiced with chile powder --- now the classic Tex-Mex version. Despite the history, we tend to prefer plates with a more Mexican bent --- the pollo en mole poblano, for example, or the Monterrey special of baked cabrito (kid goat). We are also suckers for the muy macho breakfasts, especially the chilaquiles “famosos” (tortilla strips scrambled with eggs and topped with salsa and cheese) and, if we’re feeling puckish, the menudo, a tripe soup that is a legendary hangover cure. On your way out, don’t fail to pick up an assortment of pan dulce from the beckoning bakery case; these Mexican pastries and candies are among the best in town.
