Much like residential streets during the holiday season, traditional Mexican edibles are expected to flaunt colorful decorations and endure hearty shoveling. Scoop up warming sustenance with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Mom’s Old Recipe Mexican Restaurant.
The cooks at Mom’s Old Recipe Mexican Restaurant concoct authentic home-style entrees and desserts using fresh, traditional ingredients. Start with a light, limey shrimp ceviche tossed with tomatoes and cilantro ($9.25) before diving into the dark, chocolaty waves of enchiladas moles stuffed with chicken ($9.25), ground beef ($9.25), or steak ($10.25). The carne asada is a Mom's specialty and shares plate space with house-made jalapeño-and-onion potatoes as well as rice, beans, and optional table-mate repellent. Meals can end sweetly with a saucerful of flan ($4) or crispy sopapillas ($6).
