I finally got in to check out Ponce’s Mexican Restaurant in Del Sur near my office. This is a relatively new Mexican restaurant in the area; an addition to their OG location in Kensington, in business since 1969. The Del Sur location is spacious and clean with a modern, casual vibe, although steeped in rich history and tradition. The staff were all so nice and genuine. I was immediately impressed by their generous and affordable Happy Hour! 12-5pm daily (Tue-Sun). You can get 3 street tacos and a margarita for only $11. I cannot think of any place else where HH starts at noon!
Anyway, I ordered the Enchiladas Suizas and it was excellent. Two shredded chicken enchiladas with a tomatillo cream sauce and manchego cheese; comes with rice & beans. The enchiladas were filled with a ton of tender, flavorful chicken. Loved the subtle, bright flavor of the verde sauce. The style of cooking and the recipes here are definitely comforting and authentic. I particularly enjoy their chips & salsa service. I’m really glad they were able to make it through the pandemic situation over the last couple years. It’s obvious this small business is committed to community and serving its customers. Highly recommended.
