Today is Chile Relleno Day at El Rey De Sabor
Last week El Rey de Sabor let us know that they were thinking about starting rotating specials every few days. First up: Chile Relleno. I hustled over to check it out, and if the chile relleno is anything to go by, these rotating specials are going to be a smash success. What I found after the jump:
For $8, I got a giant chile wrapped in a corn tortilla, stuffed with queso fresco, covered in a generous helping of red mole sauce and hot sauce, and served with a huge portion of rice and beans. As we’ve come to expect from the King of Flavor, the dish was hearty, comforting and authentic. My only complaint was that the cheese inside the chile wasn’t very melty, so it didn’t have that cheese-splosion when I cut into it. It’s a minor gripe though when we’re talking about something this yummy.
El Rey said that they’d be introducing new specials in the weeks to come, possibly a chicken with red mole sauce, or maybe some slow cooked shredded pork with salsa verde. And on Friday they had a torta de camarones. But today we heard that they’ll be serving up the chile relleno again.
