Location Description:

This Mexican plate-lunch spot keeps accreting like some whimsical downtown coral reef. Savor the irrepressible Irma Galvan's burgeoning decor, politically wired clientele and enormously comforting mom-food: landmark cheese enchiladas, real mole, chiles rellenos, pork ribs in home-style tomatillo sauce. Don't miss Irma's lemonade. Lunch and breakfast only; weekdays only.
