The Best Dishes Eater LA Editors Ate This Week

Crystal Coser from Eater LA features Panxa's stacked enchiladas:

Panxa Cocina, the sister restaurant to Roe Seafood, is one of the small handful of Southwestern restaurants that thrive in Los Angeles. Chef Art Gonzalez is making a strong showing of the regional cuisine, with plenty of those coveted hatch chiles that make an appearance on everything from stacked enchiladas to charred queso. It’s those enchiladas that steal the show though, with a “Christmas salsa,” that is both red and green varieties, that add striking contrast to the plate. Those hatch chilies, roasted and pureed, contribute a smoky kick to layers of tortilla, short rib, and cotija, making it unrecognizable from the casserole dish of your childhood.
