Sylvia's Enchilada Kitchen

Every enchilada's a winner

Sylvia's carne guisada, fajitas, guacamole and tres leches aren't bad either

Menudo also got high marks
from someone besides Alison Cook. Why was I thinking that was a guy's name?
What surely must be the best green chicken enchiladas in town are on offer, with a tomatillo sauce so deep and complex, right down to its bass note of slight chile heat, that it sets a local standard.

The enchiladas Morelia, a treatment from the interior of Mexico, balances crumbly white cheese with an earthy red-chile sauce to excellent effect.

This is the kind of place I would take an out-of-town guest to prove that we really know how to eat here.
Too bad it is on the other side of Houston.
