Located inside Rancho Market, Nuestra Cocina is an open kitchen with counter seating and picnic tables, where a team of friendly Mexican women make everything from the tortilla chips to menudo, chilaquiles and more. The main draw is the outrageously good molcajete. First, a layer of Oaxacan cheese is placed into the bottom of a stone molcajete. It melts immediately, creating a beautiful brown cheesy crust. Next, strips of napolitos, cooked shrimp, chicken and thin strips of beef are placed into the hot molcajete, along with whole charred jalapeños and plump Mexican-style green onions. Finally, the entire thing is topped with thick chunks of feta-like cheese and delivered to your table, hot enough to cause concern. Olé!
