Joy of Mex: El Paso

Travelers, take note: You won’t find Texas’ ubiquitous poblano chiles in El Paso. Hereabouts, green chiles (also called chiles verdes and long green chiles) are grown and used in abundance for stuffings and in stews and sauces. Casa Jurado, with two locations, is a favorite local restaurant.

CAFE CENTRAL

109 N. Oregon at 1 Texas Court, 915-545-2233.
This chic upscale spot is more a continental than a Mexican restaurant, but the Mexican dishes it does have are original and excellent, including wonderfully crisp bacon-wrapped prawns in a chipotle marinade, lovely puntas de filete (sliced tenderloin)
