Weekly Vendors:

June 15 – Taquitos Gabriel

June 29 – Chef Ana Fabian Mendoza

Chef Mendoza will be serving enchiladas and molotes. We all like a good chicken or vegetarian enchilada with a creamy red sauce and all the fixings (sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, crumbled cheese) and what is a molote?  A lightly fried potato patty with a lining of chorizo in the middle just like a Twinkie! Also, available as a vegetarian option. It is then covered in a traditional Oaxacan mole! Agua Frescas will also be served.
