Xochitl Restaurant Review

: If you're in the mood for Mexican food, try the tamales and other classic dishes at Xochitl (pronounced so-cheet). Margaritas and specialty tequila cocktails at this cozy establishment make a good argument for hanging about after dinner, too. (The bar stocks 75, 100 percent blue agave tequilas.) The menu features traditional favorites such as queso fundido and carnitas tacos, along with signature dishes including the pollo frito --- chicken that's brined for 24 hours, dipped in a four-flour mixture, fried, and served with a sweet chile sauce, cornbread and chile cream spinach. The $28 molcajete dinner for two, offered Sunday through Thursday, is a good value: You get four different fillings for make-your-own tacos, along with a volcanic rock vessel to keep everything warm. Add in the kickin’ tableside guacamole and Xochitl stands out from the crowd.
