Tortas from Mole Poblano in the Italian Market
A friend took me shooting for the first time ever at a range in the Italian Market and I worked up an appetite. I noticed that Mole Poblano had taken over the space formally occupied by Acapulco. Mexican sounded perfect, so I went in and washed the lead off my hands.
Mole Poblano still uses the Acapulco menu, which features classic Mexican taqueria food. Crunchy chips and dip were brought out first.
Cheese smothered steak sopes tasted better than they looked, I especially like the warm sope shell underneath.
Al pastor tacos were stuffed with a lot of meat that was nicely marinated.
My torta milenasa de res was my favorite of the day. Breaded pounded steak with cheese, tomato, avocado, and bean puree- it had everything I was in the mood for.
