Molino’s Mexican Cuisine owner Mario Quiroz has a birthday on Friday, and his wife is cooking him his favorite meal — pozole.
He’s decided to share. Customers who dine at the excellent Mexican restaurant at 1064 N. Waco on Friday can order pozole, too.
Pozole is a Mexican stew made with pork and lots of peppers, herbs and spices. Mario’s wife, Mara Garza, is said to make a killer pozole.
If it’s anywhere near as good as the rest of the food on Molino’s menu, it will be a very happy birthday for Mario.
BY THE WAY, I discovered today while dining on a Molino’s pirata — one of my favorite foods in Wichita — that Quiroz and I were born exactly two days apart. He looks much younger.
Molino’s will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday.
