Entomatado @ Taqueria La Noria
An enchilada is a filled tortilla with a chili sauce. An entomatada is the same idea, but with a tomato sauce instead. This little Mexican restaurant just past the Mandeville line serves entomatadas four ways–and they’ll give you all four on a plate, if you like. The tomato sauce is not like a spaghetti sauce, but it heads in that direction. The result is something really different and good.
