I love a good Mexican Restaurant but in my experience, I have not been to one recently in my neighborhood of Yorkville that gave Mexican food justice. However, that changed recently when Epazote opened.
The “Los Taquitos” , mine was the De Ternera Bohemia ($14) made with veal cheek and braised in beer, Poblado peppers, cilantro and sweet onions was delicious and a must have.
Our main course was the “Polo Con Mole” ($24) which was very flavorful and the mole sauce was fantastic. It consisted of roasted chicken skin and all, bathed in homemade mole sauce served with a side of spinach souffle, a touch of France.
Epazote has a good dessert menu that offers way more than traditional flan which is usually the case in a Mexican restaurant. We were offered a Gala Apple Crumb Tart ($9) with jalapeño chocolate ice cream and Homemade churos ($7) served with Mexican abuelita chocolate sauce.
