This Mexican restaurant in Scottsdale boasts an authentic menu not found in many other places of the Valley. Housed in a renovated cantina-style building with an impressive patio, owner Azucena Tovar finds inspiration from her own family’s recipes and skillfully translates them to the plate. The chicken enmoladas with mole poblano sauce are revered by diners, as is the snapper, with chipotle cream and balsamic honey. Come Christmastime, locals line up for a box of Los Sombreros’ tamales. lossombreros.com.
