For the next several weeks, Cafe Society will feature some of our favorite green chiles. We started with Phil's Place, and continued through El Tejado, La Fiesta, Bonnie Brae Tavern, Benny's, Lola, Mezcal, Zingers, Senor Burrito's, Mexico City Lounge, La Loma, El Taco de Mexico, and Los Carboncitos.
Today's green chile is a multi-layered, deep and coaxing slow burn that hits all the high notes, whether it's lapped up by the bowl or ladled over chile rellenos and a seam-busting burrito.
Can you guess where I'm eating green chile?
