It’s a hunka-hunka burnin’ love.
Xochitl, consistently one of the more adventurous Mexican spots in town, just rolled out a little thing called a Molcajete, which is apparently made of volcanic lava and dreams. Sayeth the X:
“Available in verde or roja sauce, the molcajete is a traditional mexican vessel carved out of volcanic rock which keeps the meal warm [...] packed full of carnitas, braised short-rib, chorizo, pollo enhelado (marinated chicken), cotija cheese, nopales (grilled cactus) and cebollitas (mexican spring onions).”
To which we say: Guh. The Molcajawny is available Sunday through Thursday for $28, and serves two.
