El Agave Mexican Restaurant: Catonsville, Md.
The Mixed Stew crew likes this Mexican restaurant. Patrons are greeted by a warm atmosphere upon entering ElAgave. We started with the Ceviche ($ 11.95) and Raul’s Jalapenos ($ 6.50). The jalapeno peppers come stuffed with melted Chapala asadero cheese that’s infused with smoked chipotle sauce. We also tried the Chili Verde ($ 12.95), Tres Amigos ($ 10.95) and Carnitas ($ 12.95). Every meal comes with refried beans and Mexican Rice. Tres Amigos consists of three different enchiladas that are stuffed with chicken, pork, and poblano peppers. Meanwhile, the Chili Verde is classic with tender pork braised in green tomatillo sauce. The texture and flavor are as if it's been slow cooked for hours. We suggest the Carnitas if you like crispy-fried pork that’s well-marinated. El Agave also features traditional margaritas. Enjoy the Tres Leches Cake ($ 5.50), too.
