MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This sweet spot stands out for its authentic Oaxacan food, a rare delight even in this neighborhood. It’s a homey, no frills sort of place that welcomes everyone, and the owner loves to chat about the traditions behind this region's cooking—or history and art as evidenced by the impromptu lending library that has emerged in the comfy back seating area.This part of Mexico is known for its incredible moles, so sample a wonderfully complex red pumpkin seed version (pipián rojo de pepitas) with pork spare ribs. Another, the glossy mole Oaxaqueño, arrives fragrant with cloves, plantains, peanuts and chocolate, served over chicken. Don’t miss the wildly fresh tamales either, filled with spices, chicken, and covered with a rich tomatillo sauce.
