"Near-perfect" are the words that one Metromix writer used to describe the chicken enchiladas at Hacienda Azteca, a Mexican eatery with white tablecloths and wood floors. Enchiladas aren't the only specialty, though; cooks also marinate red snapper for ceviche, flavor grilled steak with brandy sauce, and stuff vegetarian quesadillas with zucchini, cauliflower, carrots, and broccoli. After dinner, they step out of the kitchen to prepare desserts at diners' tables: ice cream with Kahlua-sauteed bananas is just one option.
