La Mexicana

Review by: Jane & Michael Stern

La Mexicana’s menu is huge, including fajitas a la Mexicana, for which the beef is stewed rather than grilled, tacos, flautas, tamales, enchiladas, and chilies rellenos. We began with an order of chile con queso, which comes with a large bowl of jalapeno slices to heat it up, then went on to an all-seafood meal: fish tacos made with succulent strips of grilled (not deep-fried) mahi-mahi, and shrimp in a chipotle chili sauce. The tacos were light, refreshing, and incendiary (we asked for them that way), the fish, cabbage, tomato, and cilantro laced with little nuggets of tongue-searing pepper. They were accompanied by Mexican rice and a bowl of creamy-smooth, blue-black refritos.

La Mexicana offers a full breakfast menu, starting at 7am. Choices include all sorts of huevos rancheros, eggs scrambled with chorizo (Mexican sausage), migas (a sort of tortilla omelet) and, on Saturday and Sunday only, menudo, which is a bowl of stewed honeycomb tripe. Menudo has long been considered a sure cure for hangovers.
