El Vecino’s popular “True Tex Mex” menu showcases traditional favorites and artful updates. Order this to go: We love the chicken enchiladas, steak fajitas, quesadillas, and the robust El Ultimo chile con queso, mixed with ground beef (and the good, varied kids’ menu). Also good to-go are the huachinango a la veracruzana, a filet of red snapper topped with a mild sauce of tomato, onion, peppers, olives, and capers, and the camarones al mojo de ajo, shrimp cooked in garlic, lemon, and white wine, with avocado pico. Both come with spinach-poblano rice, pureed black beans, and fresh white-corn tortillas. Pro tip: For brunch or breakfast, try the luscious Omelete de Enchilada, a three-egg omelet encasing an enchilada (chicken, cheese, or beef) and topped with your choice of tomatillo or chile sauce (con carne or con queso).
