Tlapazola Grill Restaurant Review

: With its colorful assortment of moles, Oaxacan cuisine is Mexican with a twist. The quietly gourmet Tlapazola twists it again with California touches. Start with the attractive salmon vegetable roll (deep-fried like a spring roll) or chicken tortilla soup, then move on to grilled fish (salmon with pumpkin seed sauce and a roasted garlic-spinach quesadilla), New York steak tacos, barbacoa (braised lamb) or, of course, meats in mole sauce. The lighter lunchtime menu includes salads, fajitas and roll-your-own fish tacos. For dessert, the bollo de manzana, a sort of warm apple strudel in a tortilla topped with vanilla ice cream and drizzled with caramel sauce, would be at home in any Beverly Hills restaurant. Sunday brunch offers up Mexican egg dishes. There are more than 120 tequila selections in addition to a long-ish margarita list.
