Inside Real Tenochtitlán, vibrant murals by Pilsen artist Oscar Romero give walls eye-popping color, and bright arrays of artisanal Mexican mole sauces emerge from the kitchen. Chefs at the Logan Square eatery mix up new moles each day, pairing the complex sauces with chicken, game meats, seafood, and dry screenplays in need of saucier scenes. House-made tortillas mop up morsels such as queso fundido studded with house-made chorizo or tidbits of citrusy ceviche. The cantina's bartenders pour margaritas blended with 100% blue-agave gold tequila, Gran Torres orange liqueur, and fresh lime juice, or fill glasses with Mexican beers.
