You’ll find much more than tacos and tamales at El Paso’s three Manhattan locations. Yes, the classics are ­­accounted for, prepared daily with ingredients imported from the motherland with as much reverence as anything else on the menu; but El Paso’s roots run deep. Chilaquiles, a comforting mid-day meal of tortilla chips and meat smothered in green tomatillo or red Guajillo sauce, topped with onions, crema fresca, and Cotija cheese for a satisfying rendition of this centuries old Mexican staple. The menu runs the gamut from brunch and vegetarian selections like enfrijoladas, a savory blue corn tortilla wrap, and Huitlacoche, a quesadilla stuffed with the mushrooms. The restaurant’s most popular dish is molcajete Acapulqueño, grilled skirt-steak and a grilled chicken breast stacked on a smoked cactus pad with a sprinkling of house-made chorizo, all served in a warm stone mortar.
