Ready for a Baton Rouge First? It's the Molcajete!


Ready to treat yourself to something new? Then you need to visit Zapata's today, and try the dish that Mexican food lovers all over town have been talking about: the Molcajete. So what is it, anyway?


Molcajete (pronounced mole-kah-HAY-tay) is our term for the stone bowl traditionally used in Mexico to grind and prepare certain foods. It's carved from a single piece of volcanic rock, and has been used since the days of the Aztec and the Maya.  Because this type of stone stays hot for a long time, the molcajete also makes a classic serving dish.


We take an extremely hot stone molcajete, and fill it with the ingredients you love. Grilled shrimp, tender chicken, juicy strips of steak, Mexican sausage, pork, bell peppers, onions, and zucchini. All topped with a warm layer of melted mozzarella cheese. It's brought to your table sizzling, with a side of guacamole, rice, beans, and tortillas. When you see it, savor the aroma, and finally taste it, you'll never look at a regular skillet of fajitas the same way again.
