Sanborns is an institution in Mexico City. It’s a chain of department stores and cafes, so on my second day in el Distrito Federal I came to their cafe in La Casa de Azules, a beautiful old building.
Huitlacoche is a fungus which grows on corn and is not easy to find in the USA. It was served in the sauce with corn kernels, poblano peppers and shredded chicken. The flavors were nice, but the sauce was a little soupy. The huitlacoche was lost in all of that cream. The pablanos added a slight spiciness to the dish.
