i am a huge fan of chile rellenos (you know, the mexican stuffed peppers that are dredged in an egg batter and cooked, then served in a sauce with tortillas?). but there are so many bad ones out there. too old, too bland, over battered, over cooked.
i plunked down $10 (plus tip) for the chile relleno & the fresh homemade horchata. While you only get one pepper, it was large & stuffed to the gills. and not just cheese, but cheese (several kinds), fresh corn, and more. the sauce was not a traditional ranchera sauce, but a verde (tomatillo) sauce, topped with fresh cream and cilantro. YUM!
it was easily the BEST relleno i've ever had.
