Highlights from the Rogue 99 ~ La Casita Mexicana

[dropcap size=big]T[/dropcap]here may not be a more colorful restaurant in L.A. than La Casita Mexicana. Both the decor and the food here are deep-hued, with orange and blue walls and tablecloths across the entire red spectrum. There’s also an impressive collection of hojalata here, so you’ll enjoy yourself even if you’re more into art than food. Speaking of food, the glorious sauces here come in just about every naturally-occurring color, sometimes even on the same plate, as in the case of the enchiladas tres moles. Chile en nogada, with its bright green stuffed pepper, white walnut sauce and sprinkling of pomegranate seeds continues the colorful-delicious theme. If you make it in time for breakfast, you’re faced with seven different chilaquile options. That’s a great problem to have, and one that people choose to be faced with on the regular.
