We both started with a cream of "poblano" with corn.

Back to "El Cardenal"
I wrote that we had a somewhat disappointing dining experience at "Fonda Mayora" last Saturday. On Sunday when Alejandro and I were downtown we went to one of our tried and true favorites "El Cardenal". Once again we enjoyed an excellent meal.
As a main course, Alejandro had lamb "al pastor"... the meat was prepared with onions, chiles, and pineapple.
I had chicken breast stuffed with spinach and covered with a goat cheese sauce.
Alejandro is hamming it up over his dessert of a crepe filled with plantains and covered with "cajeta", Mexican caramel. We also had "café de olla", traditional Mexican coffee flavored with cinnamon and brown sugar and served in clay pots.
I had "tres leches" cake... a decadently delicious cake soaked in evaporated milk, condensed milk and heavy cream.
A delicious meal at a restaurant known for its traditional Mexican cuisine!
