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?
(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.
