La Morada

Mexican in The Bronx

This boldly painted but unpretentious eatery in the South Bronx whips up outstanding fare from Oaxaca – one of Mexico's great culinary destinations. It's the famed spot to try meat (or veg-friendly chile relleno) smothered in dark, rich mole sauce (featuring chocolate and peppers). Another highlight is the satisfying tlayuda, an oversized corn tortilla topped with beans, cheese and protein of choice.
