Village Voice's Description

The bedrock of Casa Enrique’s menu is the cooking of Chiapas, Mexico’s southernmost state, with a Pacific coastline and common border with Guatemala. The cuisine at this charming Long Island City spot runs to fairly mild, chile-laced sauces in which are deposited things like pork ribs and lamb shanks. From the same region comes a red pozole, a homely stew of pork and whole hominy kernels in a light broth, into which one throws raw onions, chiles, and cilantro. The menu also includes dishes from other southern Mexican states, including Puebla, Oaxaca, and Guerrero, and some dishes (like crab tostadas) from the Pacific coast. Most recommended: enchiladas dona blanca, a poor person’s plate of cheese and roasted chiles wrapped in tortillas and topped with tomatillo sauce.

Tips from foursquare

  • AskMen on 03/23/12

    dining situation influenced by the cuisine of San Luis Potosi: sopes with chorizo, fried oysters with chili mayo, chile relleno, traditional mole and roasted pork ribs marinated in guajillo chilies.

  • Serious Eats on 06/19/13

    A classier neighborhood spot compared to most New York Mexican restaurants, with slightly upscale takes on home-style Mexican dishes. Go for the rajas con crema and the stewed pork ribs.

  • Derek K. on 06/02/13

    Tostadas De Jaiba! crab in crispy tortilla with citrus, avocado, tomato, chile serrano and cilantro

    Try the Interior Mexican Cuisine (via @Foodspotting)

  • Zack D. on 08/21/13

    The salsa verde enchiladas will get you hooked on this place.
