THE BRONX -

A restaurant on Westchester Avenue is serving up recipes the owners grew up cooking.

El Molcajete is bringing an authentic taste of Mexico to Soundview. Some of the restaurant's best sellers include classics like nachos, burritos and tacos.

The No. 1 dish is named after the restaurant itself and comes with steak, chicken, chorizo, cactus leaves, onions and cheese.

"Everything that we use here is organic: the water, the vegetables, everything we use to prepare the food is organic," says Floreberta Ramirez.

The owners say El Molcajete is a family-friendly environment.
