Delicias Mexicanas (2109 3rd Ave between 115th and 116th)

Food served Mexico City style (D.F. Guey) !!!!! I sat down in this very clean establishment (don't worry it's still a hole-in-the-wall) and when I opened the menu I was pleasantly surprised. You have hauraches, tacos, mole, enchiladas and they serve pozole on the weekends. I started off with a carne asada taco ($1.50) and finished it in less than sixty seconds... yes it was that good.

Next I ordered the Pozole (cos' it was Sunday and that's what you do), now pozole is a traditional Mexican soup which has been around since pre-Columbian times and derives from the Nahuatl word potzolli. There are different variations of the soup depending on the region. The base for all pozole is hominy (dried corn) and pork (although some use chicken instead). The pozole at Delicias Mexicanas is made in a clear broth, I grew up on a red broth so I prefer it red, but beggers can't but choosers.

For dessert I ordered the flan, I am not a big flan fan and I couldn't understand why I ordered it but as soon as I put a spoonful in my mouth, for a brief second I thought I saw La Virgen but soon I realized I was looking at a miniature statue. This place gets my approval!!!!!
