Chicken Enchiladas de Mole Negro


Chicken Mole Enchiladas

Chicken Mole Enchiladas

I recently took some visiting friends to a great new Mexican restaurant called Pelea Mexicana, located on the edge of Tribeca and Soho on Lispenard St. and 6th Ave. The space is impressive with tall ceilings, brass and wood furnishings, lively music, homemade tortillas, hot sauces, and authentic Mexican dishes made with fresh ingredients. In the spirit of Cinco de Mayo, I sampled their classic Oaxacan-style Enchiladas de Mole Negro, served bubbling hot with a melty layer of Chihuahua cheese, velvety mole sauce and shredded chicken with onions inside corn tortillas, baked to perfection.

Mole is a common dish in Mexican cuisine, (pronounced Moh-lay) which is prepared with a rich, reddish brown chili-chocolate sauce using dark chocolate and guajillo peppers (you can find these at your local fresh market or online at Marx foods or Penzeys Spices). Slightly spicy with a touch of smokiness, Mole Enchiladas are usually prepared with chicken but can also be made with pork or shredded beef, (or go vegetarian with corn, beans and rice filling). To save time, you can prepare the sauce ahead of time, and use pre-made shredded chicken, beef or whatever filling you decide on. Bake them in a clay or ceramic pot and serve directly from the oven in the dish, garnished with cilantro or green onions, along with a side of chips and a variety of salsas and a tangy lime margarita. Ole!

Chicken Enchiladas de Mole Negro

For the enchiladas:

6-10 flour or corn tortillas, small size
1.5 c shredded chicken
1/4 c light sour cream
1/4 c green onions, chopped
2 c grated white cheese, halved in 2 equal parts (queso fresco or chihuahua)
Salt and Pepper

For the Mole Sauce:

2 slices bacon
1 large onion, chopped
2 ribs celery, chopped
1 medium carrot, chopped
4 dried guajillo peppers, seeds & stems removed
4 cloves garlic
1/4 c warm water
1 14 oz can whole tomatoes, with juices
2 c chicken broth
1/4 c premium dark chocolate, chopped finely
Salt and pepper
Garnish: Cilantro and/or green onions, chopped

Directions for Mole Sauce:

Saute bacon in a saucepan over medium high heat until fat is rendered and bacon is crispy. Remove bacon, discard or save for another purpose. Add onion, carrot and celery and saute until softened, about 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile, puree chilies, garlic and water in a food processor. Strain through fine mesh strainer.

Add tomatoes, broth and strained chili puree to vegetable mixture. Simmer on high heat for 20-30 minutes until well incorporated and sauce has reduced and thickened. Strain, pressing on solids. Stir in chocolate until melted. Salt and pepper to taste, keep sauce warm.

Directions for Enchiladas:

Mix chicken, sour cream, green onions and half of the cheese in a bowl. Salt and pepper to taste.

Lay out tortillas, fill with chicken mixture.

Roll tightly and lay in a ceramic or clay baking dish that has a thin layer of mole sauce already spread on the bottom (to prevent sticking and burning).

Cover with remaining sauce and top with remaining Chihuahua cheese.

Bake at 325 for 30 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbling. Let stand a few minutes before serving.

Serves 4.

Feeling Lucky with Korilla BBQ


Killa Korilla Korean BBQ

KK_logo

Today was one of those days where I looked up at the time and it’s 2:30 and I still haven’t eaten lunch. Maybe the massive New York toasted bagel and cream cheese I ate for breakfast had something to do with it or the fact that it’s Friday and everything seems to be off schedule for some reason.

So I went for a walk around the block to see what I was actually in the mood for today and couldn’t find a darn thing that even sounded appealing. Soup or Chili? Nah, plenty of soup days to come with this NEVERENDING Winter we seem to be experiencing in NYC. Mexican? Nah. Too filling and carb-loaded that I might just have a food coma and fall asleep on my keyboard when I get back to work. Indian? Nah, just had Chicken Tikka Masala a couple of days ago. Another Deli sandwich and a Diet Coke? Nah, I think I might just slit my wrists or die of boredom if that is the only thing I can come up with for an exciting lunch on a Friday afternoon.

Freezing, annoyed and a little discouraged that I couldn’t just find something I really wanted (considering I was still starving even after my bagel and coffee), I stumbled upon this Korean BBQ Food truck that had quite a few people in line, some funky graphics on the menu to explain what the hell they actually serve in that food truck that was so darn appealing, and three young Korean guys inside, with caps and arty glasses and smiles on their faces. (You know, the Williamsburg, Brooklyn foodie types). One of them saw the confused look on my face as I was staring and trying to understand the menu choices and lured me in with a “Just step in line, we’ll help you figure it out”. Then one of the customers that was leaving said “I don’t know what the heck it is, but it’s freaking amazing”. OK – I was intrigued, SOLD.

Feeling Lucky Chosun Bowl

I impulsively said “I’ll have what he’s having” and it turned out to be one of their “I’m Feeling Lucky” Chosun Bowls. “Pick your meat”, he said. “OK, I’ll take the Pulled Pork”, I said. “What kind of rice do you want?”, he replied. “I’ll take the B.K.F.R. – bacon kimchi fried rice”, I said, that sounded pretty darn good. Then he scooted me down the assembly line and added a random assortment of pickled kimchi and mountain wild veggies (bellflower root, soybean sprouts, pickled cucumber, shredded carrots, pickles, mung sprouts and who knows what else), and a sprinkle of shredded Cheddar cheese (which seemed peculiar, but hey who can resist a little cheese on anything?). He topped off the intriguing bowl of ingredients with some scallions, spinach and Korean squash and then added a healthy squeeze of Korean hot sauce. “Oh, and you can add some of the Korilla K’illa Extra Hot Sauce too, please!”, I chimed. For a reasonable 8 bucks, I had a decent, healthy lunch.

I walked back to my office wondering what the heck I just got myself into, feeling intrigued yet excited to dig in. Upon first bite, I was in LOVE. The Chosun Bowl was a great combination of hot and cool, savory and sour, crunchy, spicy and tangy flavors, packed with crisp, pickled veggies surrounding the tender BBQ smoked pork over the savory bacony rice. The hot sauce gave it a kick of flavor and zing that woke up my tastebuds (and motivation to hit the water cooler not soon after!)

Upon completion of my mysterious yet delicious Korean lunch on a Friday afternoon, I was “feeling lucky”, very lucky, due to my newfound food find, indeed.

Korilla BBQ has a variety of other menu items including other bowls, burritos and tacos made your way. They use choice meats, organic veggies and fresh ingredients too, which is evident once you taste a bite of this awesome BBQ. You can find these guys in their Killa Korilla Food Truck in various locations around New York City (just check them out online at www.KorillaBBQ.com for the menu and locations or follow them on Twitter @KorillaBBQ

A Fresh Baked Find at Bryant Park Holiday Market


A Winter treat to warm the senses

Last weekend I got an urge to check out the Bryant Park Holiday Market and Ice
Skating Rink to get in the holiday spirit. People were shopping, skating, sipping
hot chocolate and enjoying the scenery as was I (except for the skating part!)
There were rows and rows of holiday gift booths selling jewelry, arts and
crafts, candies, food and other goodies. Lights, skaters, enormous christmas tree,
holiday music, crowds of shoppers and tourists – a typical holiday scene at a popular
main attraction in New York City.

While I was strolling through the maze of shops, I stumbled upon the most delicious
handmade pretzels I’ve had in a long time. I couldn’t help but notice the long line wrapped
around the booths (along with the taunting smell of warm hot pretzels and butter) and
discovered Sigmund Pretzel Shop, artisanal pretzel shop and cafe located in the East
Village in NYC.

They had an adorable tiny booth decked out with delicious hot, soft, fresh baked pretzels
in a variety of flavors: mini truffle cheddar, feta and olive, and mini garlic parsley, and
their traditional mini and large size original pretzel salted with butter. I ordered the mini
truffle cheddar and took a bite of the warm, fat, crusty pretzel covered in melted cheddar
and truffle butter, watched the skaters go by and went to heaven.  I love Christmas in New York.
There’s nothing else like it on earth!

Lobster anyone?


Luke’s Lobster – East Village, NYC

Lukes Lobster E Vlg

One visit to Luke’s Lobster, in the East Village, NYC and you’ll see why this new casual seafood shack has become such a big hit in New York. The restaurant opened in October 2009, by Maine native Luke Holden, and all of their seafood is imported from Luke’s father’s business in Maine, Portland Shellfish. Luke’s aim is to keep prices reasonable compared to its competitors which has enticed New Yorkers to splurge for their famous Lobster Rolls.

luke's sign

An A-frame menu stands outside the doorway with menu specials for the day sprawled in chalk handwriting and inside this small seafood shack is one center table, seating six, surrounded by an L-shaped stool bar along the walls and windows seating approximately 10-15 more. Not very large inside, but Luke’s Lobster fits the New England seafood shack image, with a trendy East Village location on 1st Ave. and 7th Street.

lobster, shrimp and crab rolls

The most popular menu item is their signature Lobster Roll, followed by their Crab Roll and Shrimp Roll, which are all offered a la carte for $7-14, or as a “Schooner Combo” including chips and a pickle for $9-16 (Lobster is the most expensive, Shrimp the least). Besides their famous Rolls, the menu also offers two homemade rich and creamy soups in bread bowls: Maine Lobster Bisque and New England Clam Chowder. The Empress Crab Claws can be ordered solo (4 for $5) or in a combination basket such as “Taste of Maine” including a trio sampler of each Seafood roll (1/2 portion), two crab claws, chips and a drink for $20. Order “Noah’s Ark” for two and you get the same sampling for $38. They feature Maine Root Soda in a variety of flavors, and Miss Vickie’s Chips, a Maine-based potato chip company, to keep the New England heritage and theme consistent in this trendy seafood shack.

Upon visiting last weekend, Luke’s seemed to be fairly empty around 10 pm on a Saturday night, which seemed a bit surprising, if not concerning, considering this was my first visit to the shack (a bit late in the season which could be the reason for its empty stools). But no complaints to the bare establishment, as we ordered and were served in less than 10 minutes. My friend and I ordered the “Noah’s Ark” which looked authentically “shack-like”, served in a plastic basket lined by a sheet of wax paper, including 3 decent sized half rolls of Shrimp, Crab and Lobster. The two mini crab claws were served in a plastic sauce container along with another filled with cocktail sauce on the side for dipping. I dove in to the Lobster Roll first, and on first bite, tasted succulent and sweet Lobster meat, lightly seasoned with savory spices, on a perfectly toasted, buttery roll. The meat was fresh and light, with only a dab of mayo and a special secret seasoning which was refreshing and delicious. The Shrimp and Crab rolls had nice, medium-sized shrimp and chunks of crabmeat, and the portions were just right. The Sea Salt & Vinegar chips that came with it had a nice, tangy, salty flavor to accompany the rolls, and the Maine Root Soda (blueberry) added a refreshing, homespun flavor to the meal, as if we were sitting near the ocean on a summer day.

All in all, the service was quick – the baskets were delivered to our stools, by a friendly server with a smile, but the atmosphere seemed a bit mediocre (the fluorescent lighting a bit annoying and the bare stools next to us begged for some more patrons to liven the place up a bit) and the menu is a bit limited. I would recommend a visit to this tasty gem, but in the summer time when seafood is a bit more tempting as menu fare and earlier in the evening when the East Village is humming on a steamy summer night, to make the experience a bit more authentic and exciting. But who isn’t in the mood for a juicy lobster roll anytime of the year right?

A Taste of Rochester – Top Picks


Rochester, NY may not be the first place that comes to mind for your next culinary travel adventure. But here are several reasons why you should – growing up there has given me some fond memories of delicious, hometown food and restaurants that are worth visiting every time I pay a visit. (In fact, I refuse to visit Rochester without an Abbott’s Frozen Custard in the summertime – vanilla and chocolate swirl, with chocolate sprinkles in a waffle cone, thank you very much!)

Rochester is a melting pot of cultures due to the extensive number of Italian, Polish, Ukrainian, German and European immigrants that settled there in the mid-1800s. For the food lovers out there, you can definitely find some of the best pizza, heroes and wing joints to old-world specialty foods to funky diners and cafes in the trendy parts of the city such as Park Avenue and Monroe Avenue. Here are some of the places you don’t want to miss to get a true taste of the unique array of food in this in All-American town.

Burgers, Hots and Wings

Nick Tahou’s Hots: This is a place you don’t want to miss! Home of the famous “garbage” plate, Nick Tahou’s is a Rochester legend founded in 1918 located near the University of Rochester packed with starving college students gobbling up their legendary mile-high greasy plates after a few too many drinks. The garbage plate consists of either two cheeseburgers or hot dogs smothered in onions and their famous Rochester-style meaty hot-sauce, with a side of macaroni salad and home fries, topped with more hot sauce and the works. Word of warning: you may need some Pepcid the next morning, but it sure hits the spot after a night out at 3 am. www.garbageplate.com

Located at: 3070 West Henrietta Rd., Rochester, NY 14623
~ 585-272-1182.


Anchor Bar
: This is the home of the original Buffalo Wing recipe, founded in Buffalo, New York in 1964 by Teressa Bellissimo. Their wings are big and meaty, crispy on the outside and drenched in the most delicious, buttery hot sauce you’ll ever taste. Make sure to get the generous side of celery and carrots with blue cheese dressing for dipping to cool your flaming lips along with a nice draft lager from the bar to wash it all down for a true experience. Plenty of beer and wing specials daily (.50 cent wings on Tuesdays), and it’s a fun atmosphere in the trendy theatre district area on East Ave. www.anchorbarrochesternewyork.com

Located at: 355 East Ave. Rochester, NY 14604 ~ 585-861-6475


Country Sweet Chicken and Ribs
: Country Sweet is a Rochester-based BBQ joint best known for their special sweet and spicy sauce and succulent barbeque chicken and ribs. The best item on their menu is their colossal-sized crispy battered chicken wings, drenched in their signature sweet and addictive wing sauce so good you’ll want to lick the plate. These are not Buffalo wings and the sauce is an exclusive “Rochester thing”- they are more of a cross between Southern Fried Chicken drenched in a sweet and spicy sauce you’ve never tasted anywhere else. The chicken and ribs are phenomenal too (try the Country Sweet Sampler Dinner with Chicken, Ribs, Wings, Fries, Macaroni Salad and Coleslaw), and you can even purchase a jar of their special sauce to take home with you if you can’t get enough of it on your visit. Located on Mount Hope Avenue, this is one finger lickin’ spot you don’t want to miss when you’re in town.  http://rocwiki.org/Country_Sweet

But one bite of their crunchy crust and tangy tomato sauce oozing with gooey cheese and loaded with crispy pepperoni in every bite, and you’ll be hooked for life. Some even say Bay Goodman gives NYC pizza a run for its money – don’t miss this one!  http://www.baygoodman.com
