In a rather drab but sparkingly clean atmosphere, warm, helpful informed staff serve some of the best Mexican I have had outside of the Southwest. Of note to vegertarians, they do not cook with lard and keep meat/vegetarian cooking segregated. Most important, SENSATIONAL flavors, especially the mole. If you are visiting New Haven, eat here!

My son and I go here for Saturday lunch as often as we can. The owners are from Puebla, and the clientele is often heavily weighted toward Mexican people. You have to drive across some of the most godforsaken urban terrain to get there. You will think of Fitzgerald's description of that blighted landscape in Gatsby. But it's worth the short ride east on Chapel from Wooster Sq. The stuffed chile, the mole, the spicy pork...they're all great, and the woman there is very nice, and it could not possibly be more authentic/

With Los Molcajetes in Norwalk this place has the best Mexican food in the state (and better than much I've had in the southwest and California). Nothing fancy, but authentic and delicious. The chiles rellenos are great as is the guac and the refritos.
