The city isn’t known for Mexican food, but there are actually so many choices that you can dive into regional cuisines if you want. Their original location on Alberta (there’s a new outpost at Prost Marketplace) manages to please practically everyone with their namesake specialty. There are often multiple moles to choose from, too, including the dark, semi-sweet Pueblan version, mole verde made from poblanos and jalapeño, and a mole rosado that gets its pink hue from beets. Order all three atop your choice of enchiladas, accompanied by Mexican rice and a little arugula salad. It's served on colorfully painted ceramic dishes that elevate the entire experience—even if you’re sitting at a picnic table.
