The Sun Valley mole house has the same menu as Camacho's original location in South East L.A. -- except for a few changes.
A small pre-opening reception was held on Friday the 13th and we went along. A few of Camacho's signature green nopal tortilla based creations were passed out to try, including a grassy empanada encasing Huitlacoche and another one fried Panucho style and topped with the chef's majestically tender Cochinita Pibil and creamy black beans.
The menu editing still needs some work and the prices are all $3-$4 more than the original location for some reason. But there is booze available in the Sunland location, although it's corporate beer and $5 glasses of whatever wines for now. Also, Camacho is offering a five course chef's tasting menu.
