La Chilaquería

La Chilaquería - Chilaquiles de Mole

Written By Greg

I'm a techie, foodie, and photographer. My wife and I fell in love with Puerto Vallarta and we decided to buy a home from here.

October 5, 2021

During the day, Sonorita’s becomes La Chilaquería which serves breakfast with multiple types of chilaquiles.

I tried the version with Mole (as shown in the featured image above), which, of this posting, is by far the best mole sauce I’ve ever had.

My wife tried the vegetarian version featuring a verde sauce that I missed photographing because I was too busy shoveling the mole version into my face because of how good it was.

We also got to try the Cafe de Olla (shown in gallery). Café de olla (lit. pot coffee) is a traditional Mexican coffee beverage. To prepare traditional café de olla, they use a traditional earthen clay pot, as this gives a special flavor to the coffee. A basic café de olla is made with ground coffee, cinnamon, and piloncillo (unrefined whole cane sugar) with optional ingredients include orange peel, anise, and cloves. The version we tried featured the orange peel. I added cream and sugar and enjoyed it where I typically do not enjoy the coffee flavor.

The food was so good I went back for breakfast the following Saturday after the initial visit with a local friend. The mole sauce was still excellent and even received my friend’s seal of approval.

I came back with additional family and decided to introduce them to La chilaqueria. They are vegetarian, and ordered a custom version with cheese, mushrooms, poblano slices, and red + green sauce. They ended up raving about the food. I tried the Birria Chilaquiles and I could not believe how delicious it was.
