Choicest concealed chow New York 2006 - Nuevo Mexico

From the outside, this 24-hour grocery in a non-neighborhood between Woodside and Elmhurst doesn't look like much, and clutter greets you as you enter. But persevere to find a steam table with a chalkboard menu at Nuevo Mexico, and besides tacos and quesadillas, some rather ambitious southern Mexican fare. We loved the half-chicken "en adobo"—smothered in a gritty red chile sauce—but the mole poblano was equally dope—the same half-chicken bathed in a midnight brown sauce that incorporates dried chiles, almonds, cinnamon, and chocolate.
