THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Real Tenochtitlan Restaurant Review

: While the name of this Logan Square restaurant won’t necessarily roll off your tongue, the fare will be more than familiar to followers of authentic, south-of-the-border cuisine. The spotlight is on a wonderfully complex rainbow of moles, from hoja santa-laced Oaxacan yellow atop pink shrimp to fruity green mole blanketing a grilled pork chop. Start with the flavorful guacamole, made tableside, or the earthy sopa azteca with chicken, chile pasilla and house-made sour cream. Go spicy with entrées like tilapia marinated in roasted garlic and topped with pickled jalapeños and olives, or stick with more familiar sounding carne asada. Either way, be sure to ask for extra homemade tortillas. The beautifully decorated room and attentive service isn’t reflected in the reasonable prices. Save even more with the BYOB policy.
