Friends recommended Bert's Taqueria, and I thought - "oh no - not another taco and enchilada with rice and refried beans." Fortunately, although the lunch menu of such offerings is delicious and cheap, the dinner at the newly-Christened Epazote is something else altogether. The chef-owner, Fernando, explained that Mexican cuisine can be thought of as one of the first true fusions - of Indian, Spanish, and French, given it's history. Moreover, as I knew from visiting Mexico, there are a variety of regional cuisines - each with its own specialties and distinctive flavors. Tex-Mex, which many think of as "Mexican" food, is one type but there are many others (e.g. from Oaxaca, to the Yucatan), just as in the US we have regional foods, such as Southern cooking, Southwestern flavors, and so on. We had the chef's specials - from the appetizer, to two different moles - one Poblano and one rosa - served with duck and halibut, respectively, to dessert. They were extraordinary. I've never had moles that were so subtle and delicious. I rarely have dessert - but I would not have missed the surprising and delicious Mongolian mousse for anything. It is small but powerful - hitting every part of your palate perfectly. Do not miss this dining experience - or meeting Nando and having him explain Mexican cuisine to you.
