Devorame otra vez, La Vaquita

Posted by CDB 1 Feb 2009 6 Comments

I finally returned for the huilote en mole.  It did not disappoint.




Again, the mole was deep and delicious.  It photos terribly, but so does art, and both are beautiful.  The quail itself was much better than the smaller ones I had grilled previously.  The meat was much jucier and easier to remove.  I liked putting chunks of the chicken/pork tasting meat on a fresh tortilla and slathering it with a little more mole.

I saved the leftover tortillas and mole.  The next day I made a quesadilla with mole on top.  Awesome.  I might just custom order it next time.

Also, I’d like to highlight La Vaquita’s new website, which one reader informed us of.  It might come in handy when you want to call in some huilotes so you don’t have to wait twenty minutes for them.

    I find these entries very interesting and helpful in exploring the Durham food options that I have not encountered yet. I know that you often do, but could you please include prices of meals with all of your blog entrees? I am trying to decide if I want to drive over to La Vaquita and I am thinking of how useful it would be to know how much the Huilotes con mole plate costs.
