Pollo en mole – San Jalisco

Pollo en mole - San Jalisco
Fresh chicken smothered with home-made puebla-style chocolate mole sauce, served with refried beans and rice. $13.95
San Jalisco, San Francisco CA

I loved the mole sauce in this dish. I’m sure it wasn’t the healthiest for you, but that’s probably why it was SO good. It was very flavorful and the chicken was also tender and juicy.

Chilaquiles Veronica – San Jalisco

Chilaquiles Veronica - San Jalisco
Tortilla bits scrambled with two large eggs, cheese, onions and salsa complemented with chorizo, nopales and fresh Mexican-style sour cream. Served with black beans and rice. $9.95
San Jalisco, San Francisco CA

This was a lot of food, and it was delicious! You shouldn’t order this if you’re counting calories because this dish will definitely break the bank. I enjoyed that the drenched tortilla chips weren’t soggy, and the combination of sauce and gooey cheese kept everything together wonderfully. The addition of cactus and chorizo definitely put these chilaquiles over the top. Noms!

Chips and salsa - San Jalisco
Chips and salsa. Complimentary
I have to say it, the chips always taste a bit stale here. 😦

Birria seca – San Jalisco

Birria seca San Jalisco

Barbecued goat served dry and accompanied with onion, cilantro, lemon, and Mexican style rice and refried beans. Served with a side of corn tortillas. $10.95
San Jalisco, San Francisco

I decided to order the goat, which I’ve never had a restaurant (that I can remember). We grew up butchering goats for family parties. I was feeling adventurous and curious so I chose the birria. Tasting it immediately brought me back to my childhood – that’s exactly how goat tastes! I haven’t had it for SO long but the flavor of it was familiar. I liked it! Lemme also add that the refried beans were amazing!

Chips and salsa San Jalisco

Chips and salsa. The salsa started out a little tomato-y which I don’t really like, but it had suck a lingering heat to it that I ended up loving it!

Pozole – San Jalisco

Pozole San Jalisco Mexican Restaurant

Pork soup in a red, homemade spicy sauce complemented with corn hominy. Served with cabbage, radishes, lime wedges, chopped onions, Mexican oregano, and chili peppers on the side. $9.95
San Jalisco, San Francisco

This pozole had great flavor, but I wish it had come out hotter (temperature wise). It was only warm and quickly became luke warm. Not the way you should enjoy pozole! The preparation was rustic which I don’t mind, but Silverfox didn’t like picking around the bones and connective tissue of the pork. I did enjoy the number of accompaniments this came with. You could flavor the soup just the way you like it.

I do have to mention that the service at this restaurant was particular sweet and friendly.
