Los Molcajetes - lõs · mõl · ca · hêtes
The traditional Mexican version of a mortar and pestle, Molcajetes have long been considered the starting point of any good meal. Used in everyday cooking as a manual grinder, it is a must-have for the serious Mexican cook. We named our restaurant Los Molcajetes because we are proud of our Mexican heritage and wanted a name that would be a symbol of our cooking traditions. Even today molcajetes are used in our family kitchens.
The Starting Point!
Los Molcajetes Mexican Restaurant opened in June of 1999, serving traditional Mexican food. Since their opening the restaurant has received several outstanding reviews in the areas local newspapers and on the internet. Los Molcajetes pronounced “los mole-ka-het-tayes” is located in a strip mall off Beach St. at 4320 Western Center Blvd. in Ft. Worth, Texas.
With a warm décor you feel welcome immediately. The music gets you in the mood for… Margaritas…you will feel like you are on the beach lounging in Mexico. When you are seated warmed tortilla chips are brought to your table with either a red or a green salsa topped with onions and cilantro. Watch out for that green one! Fajitas are our specialty, with beef, chicken, pork, or shrimp to choose from it will be hard to pick your favorite! To finish off your great meal, choose from a variety of desserts. Our fried ice cream is the best, and the sopaipillas come with a generous helping of Carmel and whipped topping. For an original ending ask for the flan, a creamy custard that absolutely melts in your mouth.
