Are you in the mood for Mexican food?
If you’re in Ohio, you should check out these restaurants (this list is by no means exhaustive!).
If you find yourself in northeast Ohio, you should check out Momocho, which many locals consider one of the best Mexican restaurants in the area. Customers highly recommend starting with some of their delicious, fresh guacamole; customers particularly recommend the goat cheese guacamole with tomato and poblano pepper, but if you want to sample a few different guacamoles, you can get a guacamole sampler with three guacamoles of your choice.
