Dinner for Two Days: $8.50 Chicken Mole Poblano Platter from Puebla Mexican Food

Date July 7, 2009

After discovering the bargain that is Puebla’s $5.50 fried chicken torta, I was surprised to see that the $8.50 chicken mole poblano platter provides even more deliciousness for your dollar; it’s enough give you dinner for two days! Tender, pulled chicken breast stewed in a spicy, sweet and smokey mole Poblano is served with flavorful, fluffy yellow rice, creamy black beans, and steaming-hot tortillas perfect for creating a chicken-rice-black bean taco.  I’ve ordered this dish countless times and never been disappointed, even when bringing it to the office and reheating it in the microwave.  The key to nuking it back to life is placing 2 to 3 damp paper towels on top of your plate, thereby preventing the food from drying out.

    I should go back there sometime. The place looks really grimey, both inside and outside, but the steak torta I had was really delicious and that platter looks awesome.

    That looks pretty nasty but i bet its pretty good. the quesadilla grande with shredded beef at blockheads is the best mexican dish in town though..
