Throughout the year, local Soquel Mexican restaurant owner Cheryl Marquez creates special menus that explore different tastes of Mexico. From traditional moles and authentic tamales to the personal recipes of Frida Kahlo and the exotic flavors of cactus, each special menu explores Mexican food rarely, if ever, seen in American restaurants.
Tamales are the original “to-go” food. Small delicious packets wrapped in corn husks or banana leaves. Tamales today are a staple of Mexican cuisine with fillings limited only by the imagination.
