Restaurant Week - at Shipotles

Matt and I dined at Shipotle on Front St.  It opened one month ago at a second floor location in the heart of downtown Plainfield.  We liked it.  Matt had the pork tacos.  They came with slices of radish, guacamole and chili sauce on the side and sautéed green onions.  We've had many versions of this dish over the years and this was at least the equal of most of them.  I had chicken with mole poblano.  It came with yellow rice and refried beans, both of which had flavor.  Which is to say that some food establishments' servings of these side dishes lacked that important element.  The mole poblano sauce hid a generous portion of chicken, which was too much for me to finish.  For $20, we had a meal for two with beverages and leftovers for an additional meal to take home.  Better value than many New Jersey restaurants that charge in the $20 range just for one entrée that is often just ok but good for the price.

Give it a try.  Its at 129-33 East Front St, a few doors down from Maritza's shop on Front St between Park and Watchung.
