Our menu is the true gem of El Molcajete Restaurant. While the atmosphere we created serves to transport any customer to a homey Mexican kitchen, it is the food we make that really shines. Following traditional recipes, we make succulent dishes from scratch.
Our mole is an example of a classical meal that we take great care to prepare correctly. Here at the restaurant, we painstakingly grind the nuts and crush the chocolate that makes up our delectable mole sauce. This is a process that many do their best to avoid by buying canned sauce, but we embrace it because of the results it brings. We take no shortcuts and pay attention to detail when preparing even the simplest dishes such as the tacos, burritos, and quesadillas that many have grown to love.
True Mexican food is a delicacy that, unfortunately, many in North Carolina do not have the chance to taste because of the lack of authentic Mexican restaurants. Many local Mexican restaurants only serve cheap knock-off food which does not do our cuisine justice. When you are aching to try something new, make sure to visit El Molcajete Restaurant for authentic Mexican cuisine in Sanford, NC.
