We got back from our latest Mexico trip last night. It was a great time.
I think that many of us who travel look forward to going out to lunch or dinner in a foreign land. It is an adventure every day and, if you are around an area long enough, you find favorite spots.
Oaxaca does not specialize in what many think of as typical Mexican food. You know, tacos, burritos, enchiladas. You can get those items but Oaxaca is better known for moles which are sauces. They range from spicy sauces. made with chiles, to one that is made of chocolate.
Below is a small cafe outside the main city of Oaxaca. We have, when touring ruins, dined here on two occasions and it is a great spot. In the back there are woodcarvers and you can watch them at work. Nearby is an artisan shop.
