The Salmon Manchamantales ($23) is roasted and served with plantains in a pineapple pico de gallo. Besito's manchamantales mole is excellent. This earthy, complex sauce is certainly rivaling the mole we ate in Tulum, Mexico not too long ago! Additionally, black beans and rice studded with pepitas come with the entrees, served in little cauldrons for the table to share.
For dessert, the delicious Tres Leches Cake is a must. The dense sponge cake is soaked in three kinds of milk: evaporated, condensed, and placed atop a sweet, heavy cream. I sipped a smokey Mezcal while Bob enjoyed a spicy Mexican Hot Chocolate.
At the end of your meal - you are presented with a parting gifts - crispy Churros and tiny little Mexican Worry Dolls. Traditionally, you tell all your worries to the doll and place it under your pillow before bed. In the morning, you wake up worry free.
Besito is a true testament to the owners deeply rooted passion, stemming from years of travel to Mexico. You can also visit them in Huntington, New York, Roslyn, New York, West Hartford, Connecticut, and in Burlington, Massachusetts at The Burlington Mall.
