ENFIELD, Conn. (WFSB) - If you're looking for a taste of Mexico right here in Connecticut head to Sarapes in Enfield.

Everything is fresh and made in house, from the rice and beans to the mole sauce.

Founded by Cutberta Chavez and now run by  her daughter Maria Del Carmen Chavez, the recipes have been passed down through the family for generations.

Cutberta says her grandmother taught her to how to prepare food as a child, including dishes still on the menu today.

Maria says some people will travel hours to get a taste of "home" and that is what help keep the restaurant running for over a decade.

You can visit Sarapes on High Street in Enfield or check out their website for a look at their full menu.
