I am thinking of FINALLY checking this place out tonight. Can I get some guidance please? I am not all that familiar with Oaxacan food.

thanks.

    If there's more comprehensive review of this place (or better primer on L.A.'s Oaxacan food), I haven't seen it. Short answer - chicken in black mole ("mole negro") is the start of the show here. Service can be slow though - they seem constantly understaffed, but always worth the wait.

    1. Their Birria is good, and I also like their Clayudas.

      1. "Tacos enchiladas" with chicken or cheese and red or black mole.
        Queso fundido.
        Sopa Azteca.
        Enfrijoladas.
        Taquitos.

        And remember, almost everything there tastes even better with a side of sliced avocado.

        1. I love the barbacoa de chiva, and order it almost every time I go there. But I have never had anything there I didn't like -- it's a terrific place.

          1. Molotes plus an extra side of the black bean paste they put on top of these to eat w chips
            Goat taco
