    If you like Oaxacan food generally then you will probably like the enchiladas they serve at Guelaguetza on Olympic Blvd.


    3014 W Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90006

      I've never had Oaxacan food, how's it different? Thank you.

        They have some different sauces, such as moles in black, red or yellow, and have other regional fare such as clayudas, etc. that is not found at most Mexican food places. If you want to get into the nuances of the food I would google the term and read up on it further.

          Lulu - mid-city is sort of the center of Oaxacan food in L.A., and it's really diverse. I like El Danzante, on Pico east of Western, and that market/restaurant at Arlington (Tortilleria Expresion Oaxaquena) is really a gem - look for the giant grasshopper out front.

          Other than that, there are lots of Salvadoran places (pupusas) but maybe not so many of the "typical SoCal Mexican" places that are all over Hollywood, NE L.A., etc. I can't recommend anything in mid-Wilshire, sorry.

        Loteria at Faremers Market, although pricey. I have been meaning to check out Frank's on Fairfax--anyone have any feedback on those?
