Sylvia’s… The Enchilada Queen’s Third Location (Or Is It?)

Why would anyone review the opening of a “third location” for a restaurateur?

In a town with millions of citizens and thousands of restaurants… AND a HUGE Hispanic population, it’s puzzling that there are so few chefs/restaurateurs who present truly authentic REGIONAL Mexican cuisine. Along with fellow restaurateurs, Hugo Ortega and Arnaldo Richards, Sylvia Casares (a second-generation native Texan), in her Sylvia’s Enchilada Kitchen, presents authentic REGIONAL Mexican cuisine.

So, here’s Sylvia’s, a third location for Casares and the same regional enchiladas, moles and traditional offerings such as Huachinango a la Veracruzana (Snapper Veracruz) are served there, but the new name and concept are raising the flag that says “Hey! I have far more depth than that!”

Casares is hoping that Houstonians will note and enjoy her Mesguite Grilled Ribeyes, Beef Filets, huge Bone-In Pork Chops (served with a beautiful dark mole), South Texas Quail, tender inside skirt steak Carne Asada (simply marinated in soy and garlic) and Grilled Fish. Have you ever had a group who would like to go out for Mexican food and there’s one hold-out who just doesn’t care for “Mexican food”? This could be your destination.

At a “media Dinner” hosted by Sylvia on her grand opening (Is that OK for full disclosure?), various members of Houston’s print media, as well as food bloggers were treated to this facet of Sylvia’s self-taught and studied expertise and repertoire.

As this is not a “review”, as such, I offer a Galerie de Cuisine below of photos of the focus of this side of Sylvia Casares, “The Enchilada Queen”. :
