Mole Xiqueño Chilaquiles should be on your breakfast menu. Mole Xiqueño is one of the lesser-known types of mole. This deep-colored sauce has a rich flavor with subtle spice. Mole isn’t always the first thing you think about for breakfast. Nevertheless, it should be left on the table as an option.
Actually, mole is a wonderful sauce for enchiladas and chilaquiles. You can expect to find red and green sauce on most menus. However, at La Cadencia Cocina Urbana, you’ll find the bonus of mole Xiqueño as an option. This decadent sauce is served over chilaquiles and enchiladas alike. I recommend the mole Xiqueño chilaquiles topped with a fried egg or chicken. Normally, shredded cheese–queso Chihuahua–is served over top. But, ask for it gratinado–that’s where they melt cheese over the top. They even have vegan cheese as an option. The friendly staff serves up large portions at this bicycle-themed cafe.
So when you are traveling to Mexico City, be sure to taste this unique mole. Go for a traditional Mexican breakfast in the hip neighborhood of Roma Norte. Sit down for Huevos La Cadencia–eggs over a tortilla bathed in mole Xiqueño. You’ll be able to check mole Xiqueño off your mole tasting list.
What to Order:
- Chilaquiles con Mole Xiqueño with egg or chicken

In addition, vegans look no further! The menu includes vegan/vegetarian options including tofu and vegan cheese. So whether you are a meat-lover or vegetarian, La Cadencia has mole options for you. It is also good to know that they are bicycle and pet friendly.
