Best Chile Relleno

Little Café Poca Cosa

Battered, smothered in cheese and still somehow light as a feather, the chile relleno at Little Café Poca Cosa is amazing. Of course, in typical Poca Cosa fashion, the plate will be smothered in other tasty goodies as well—and you'd better eat those fruits and veggies, lest you endure a good scolding on the way out. Conversation is nearly impossible over the din of the kitchen and the cranked-up tunes, but less talking means more chile relleno-eating, and in this case, you'll want to focus your full attention on the plate. Bring your cash (no credit cards accepted); be prepared to wait for a table; and don't forget your hug on the way out!
