The last time I went to Sabores, I had a bad experience: food and service were not great. But, as the months passed, seeing more and more people going there, we decided to give it another chance. I still remembered the colorful decor there, although I think they added more things on the walls.
We went there for brunch and decided to start with the guacamole that was so disappointing the first time.
We had it with the tortilla chips and salsa they brought after we sat. It was a fairly good guacamole, but I admit that the presentation could have been better, maybe served in a bowl. But you know what: the most important thing was the taste that was good.
Then, Jodi ordered the vegetarian tacos, made with grilled vegetables.
This was delicious and tasty, the veggies not being bland at all. On my side, I decided to try their enchiladas de mole, a recipe from the Chef's grandmother.
The first time I had mole was at El Maguey Y La Tuna, a restaurant on the Lower East Side: there, it was fantastic! So, how would be the one at Sabores? It was delightfully sweet, smokey and rich, with an underlying taste of chocolate that was divine. I ordered it with chicken that was perfectly cooked and moist. The dish was served with rice and beans.
Last was dessert. we hesitated between the flan and the tres leches. We went for the later...
We accompanied it with a Mexican hot chocolate that had a nice cinnamon flavor, but was not as good as the hot cocoa at Zafra's.
The tres leches was not that great, being a bit dry on the top part...too bad, because the rest of the dishes at Sabores were pretty good. But, you know what? I would definitely go back there and this time, go for the flan...
Enjoy (I did)!
