Angela’s Café offers a niche interpretation of Mexican food: cuisine from the city of Puebla. The East Boston restaurant’s breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus satisfy cravings for guacamole (it’s an award-winning recipe at Angela’s), soups, salads, tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and hearty meat platters. For days after eating at this colorful, family-owned joint decorated with red, purple, blue, and green paper doilies, guests dream of the stellar mole sauce, made with a blend of chocolate, almonds, cachuate, raisins, sesame seeds, crackers, banana, house-made tortillas, rice, and beans, and served with chicken breast or pork loin. Top your meal off with a creamy flan, which consists of decadent sweet vanilla custard and cinnamon-covered Mexican rice pudding. Look out for Angela’s ever-changing seasonal dish -- blink, and you’ll miss it.
