Sol Aztecas Mexican Restaurant
At Sol Aztecas Mexican Restaurant, culinary craftsmen forge authentic Mexican feasts from homemade ingredients, marinated meats, and fresh seafood. Specialties range from the extra meaty chicken-and-chorizo burrito to the seafood fajitas with shrimp, crab, and scallops. The full bar lubricates esophagi with Mexican beers, daiquiris, and five fruity flavors of margarita, including classic lime and tropical mango. Monthly mariachi-band performances invigorate the venue, and karaoke Sundays allow diners to share heavy-metal anthems that evoke their favorite periodic-table entries.
La Cocina de Mama
At La Cocina de Mama, the culinary team sticks mainly to Mexican staples—think carne asada tacos drizzled in tomatillo sauce or two juicy pork chops with beans, rice, and sweet plantains. Occasionally, though, they whip up a dish in the quirky style that the (possibly mythical) namesake matriarch likes best. Take Pollo de Mama, for instance, a chicken breast char-broiled in secret sauce, crowned in grilled veggies and cheese dip.
Really, though, the eatery holds appeal for all types of moms. Moms who left the kids at home with a sitter might enjoy drinks such as pisco sours, martinis, or a frothy vanilla milkshake. Meanwhile, moms who bring in their youngsters might appreciate the kids' menu, which features chicken tenders and grilled cheese.
