It might be the signature sauces that make the Mexican cuisine at newly opened El Coyote so delicious and unique. There’s the mole poblano, a rich blend of chocolate, spicy chilis, fried plantains, and a handful of other flavorful ingredients. There’s also the adobo salsa, featuring roasted tomatoes and fresh garlic, and the pipian sauce, showcasing sesame seed, peanut butter, and cinnamon. The salsa verde and salsa roja offer more traditional options, both relatively mild.
When you order the carnitas de puerco, you can choose the sauce you want on top of slow-cooked chunks of pork, simmered in orange juice and a blend of spices. The pollo borracho actually features a tequila-and-white wine sauce, drizzled over chicken with fresh pico de gallo, jalapenos, chorizo, and a dusting of cinnamon. The menu at El Coyote is massive and contains a full array of appetizers and other entrees, so it’s well worth a visit.
