Tlapazola Grill Restaurant Review

: With its colorful assortment of moles, Oaxacan cuisine is Mexican with a twist. The quietly gourmet Tlapazola twists it another notch 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.
