Another 5-Star Review…



My rating is based on the FOOD. This is hands-down the best interior Mexican food you will find in Austin, and it has been for many, many years. No, Fonda San Miguel is not better. It’s not even close.

This is the BEST INTERIOR MEXICAN FOOD IN AUSTIN, and the prices are eminently reasonable. The mole has no peer in this city. No oily separation, no overbearing single flavor.

A very complex and wonderful taste that hits all of the right notes in exactly the right proportions — spicy (cloves, cumin, oregano), nutty, bitter (unsweetened chocolate), sweet, smoky (chipotle, ancho, poblano). Making mole as it’s supposed to be made is a very time- and ingredient-intensive process. Las Palomas does it right. If you’re used to some other kind of mole in an Austin restaurant, you’re used to mole made on the quick and cheap with a fraction of the necessary ingredients.
