Green Enchilada with Chicken and Tomatillo Sauce
At B'Mucho Cantina in Yeonnamdong is the best Mexican that I have had in years in Korea. I have dealt with tasteless Mexican before and accepted it because of the lack of ingredients and what-not, but all of that has been proven wrong with my most recent visit to B'Mucho Cantina.
The flavors are bright and spot on. They have real limes. They have red onions. They have cilantro and they are not afraid to use it. The guacamole (8,000) was just a bowl of creamy sunshine with a bit of pico de gallo and chopped cilantro on the side. I wish I could just spread it over everything. The chorizo tacos (5,000 each) where big and filling. To be honest, 1 taco and sharing the guacamole would have been enough for lunch. But...no, that's not how I do things. We got the Enchilada Verde (14,000) which is the much hyped dish at this place. It's really good but...I didn't really understand the toast that came on the side. The sauce was creamy, green tomatillo sauce and it was topped with lots of melted cheese, white onions and it was filled with chunks of flavorful chicken.
I commented that the chef was the most Mexican Korean I met but I found out he is actually Mexican. Go now! Mucho Gracias!
