Mi Mero Mole

$ Mexican

Southeast Division has gained yet another new eatery, and this time there’s a salsa barMi Mero MoleNick Zukin’s Mexico City-inspired eatery boasting homemade tortillas and a rotating selection of traditional stews and stir-fries, is refreshingly casual and bright—with prices that are bound to impress.

Mi Mero Mole’s menu is nearly half vegetarian and vegan, rotating between 50 to 100 different guisados through the seasons.

Recent selections have included Albondigas (beef and pork meatballs stuffed with egg and stewed in chipotle-tomato sauce), Cerdo en Mole Manchamanteles (pork stewed in a mix of fruits, nuts and dried chiles), and my favorite, Tinga de Calabacitas (stir-fried summer squash, onions, tomatoes and chipotle chiles).
