Fonda Revisited

The last time I visited Fonda I mentioned that although i wasn’t impressed with the overpriced torta, I wanted to go back for a full meal. I got that chance over this past weekend, when I went with a large group of friends. We shared guacamole, served in a large molcajete, which we ordered spicy. The guacamole came with chips as well as warmed tortillas, which were quite good. The guacamole was quite good, which made the mediocre vegetarian enchiladas ($15!) a real disappointment. Filled with potato and jicama, and slathered in a tomatillo sauce, they were one-note and uninteresting. The tortillas were spongy and the cauliflower on top was uninteresting. I know, many of you think that cauliflower is an uninteresting vegetable, but I don’t think so — it just needs some love to make it great.

    The chile rellano (also vegetarian) is one of the worst things I have ever eaten! other stuff there is usually good though.

    I just found your blog today. I have to agree that the vegetarian enchiladas at Fonda are awful. They used to be wonderful with spinach, mushrooms, and nopales in a wonderful red sauce. I don’t know when (or why) they changed them to this version, but I just am over the restaurant now. Their vegetarian options are very unimpressive now. I will just have to hang on until Calexico opens.
