Hacienda Las Mariposas
The Saltillo-tiled patio overlooking the lush grounds of this beautifully remodeled former hacienda is the perfect spot to enjoy a refreshing rosemary-spiked sangria and an appetizer like the Choriqueso Hacienda, blue corn tortillas loaded with cheese and house-made chorizo. Order this to go: The carne a la tampiqueña features tender grilled sirloin alongside an enchilada filled with cotija cheese and topped with mole sauce. The hearty sopa azteca, with fresh avocado, cojita cheese, and roasted chiles, packs up nicely for enjoyment at home. Pro tip: Ask for the chef’s special salsa if you want an extra level of heat.
