This long-time Houston spot serves “real-deal Mexican food,” according to Guy, who tucked into the tamales and chiles rellenos made from owner Irma Galvan’s family recipes. “Light, fluffy (and) super flavorful,” Guy said after taking a bite of the tamales, which come stuffed with succulent morsels of pork smothered in cascabel chile sauce. The chiles rellenos also left him impressed. Galvan makes them the old-fashioned way, which means the poblano peppers come stuffed with a ground meat filling known as picadillo. After they’re stuffed, the peppers are dipped in an airy batter, then fried until a fluffy, crisp coating forms.
