We were a group of seven, ranging from 11 to 92 years old. I had the monchego cheese as an appetizer, which was made up of thinly shaved cheese "teepees" and quite tasty. My main course was carne asada, which was flavorful with sides of...More

We ate here twice - first and last nights. My friend knew of it from a previous visit when a Oaxacan family introduced her to it. The pechuga de pollo mole negro was life changingly delicious! Great ambiance above the zocalo, also.
