Tlahco Mexican Kitchen
Tlahco in Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs, translates to “middle,” but the menu here ranges far and wide, from buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup to enmoladas with house-made mole. The bright and light stucco cafe has done a good job of pivoting to takeout, with delivery options too Order this to go: For breakfast (served all day) excellent egg tacos on hand-pressed corn tortillas hit all the right savory notes, while chocolate chip panqueques slathered with Nutella deliver plenty of sweet. Later in the day, a pork belly torta with refried beans and avocado might be the right choice. Pro tip: For a family meal, order a parillada mixta al carbon (for two or four), with arrachera steak, chicken, shrimp, sausage, quesadillas, grilled onions, and roasted chiles gueros. Tortillas, guacamole, and an assortment of salsas round out the platter.
