To historians, Las Tres Hermanas (the three sisters) are corn, beans and squash – the basis of pre-Columbian and Native American diets for centuries.
In Sacramento, Las Tres Hermanas are Sonia, Dora and Norma, the three sisters providing the basis for my Mexican food diet since 1996.
The sisters, along with brother Sergio, brought their family recipes from Chihuahua and opened Tres Hermanas in Midtown in a cozy, funky place where they welcome you with their hospitality and great food.
This isn’t your coffee shop variety of bland and uninspired combo plates. At Tres Hermanas, every dish is a treat.
Start with the enchiladas. You can match the tasty filings with one of three sauces: the roja (red) made with guajillo peppers, the verde (green) of tomatillos, jalapeños and Serrano chiles or the mole, made from peppers, nuts, chocolate and spices.
You might also want to try the house made tamales.
And for a real treat, go on the weekends for brunch. You can get carnitas, chile verde or chorizo and eggs. Camarones a la Diabla. And a lot more.
But my weekend favorite is the pozole, a pork and hominy soup served with tortillas and garnishes of cabbage, radishes and lemon. It’s by far the best version of this comfort food I have had. It makes me happy.
Tres Hermanas has both indoor and patio seating and a pretty good tequila bar.
