Mexican: Oaxaca

Guelaguetza Koreatown
3014 W Olympic Blvd, 213-427-0608
Renowned Oaxacan giant does not disappoint. Should be on almost anyone's top ten list of Mexican, as this is hard to find in other cities. Marimba band adds zest to the incredibly complex moles.

Guelaguetza Palms
11127 Palms Blvd. (310) 837-1153 Palms
Oaxacan joint that I love. Grasshoppers, heavenly mole negro, deep red barbacoa stew. I always take friends here.

El Sazon Oaxaqueno
12131 Washington Place, 310-391-4721 Mar Vista/West of 405
Basically a panaderia with restaurant attached. Famous tlayuda/Oaxacan hubcap-sized "pizza" crisp tortilla that is head and shoulders above competition - with guacamole!

11619 Santa Monica Blvd- (310) 312-1079 West LA
Oaxacan with a down-home atmosphere and toothsome moles. Recommended.

El Texate
316 Pico Blvd - (310) 399-1115
Oaxacan in Santa Monica. I liked mole coloradito.

Monte Alban
11927 Santa Monica Blvd - (310) 444-7736 West LA
Oaxacan fare with no lard = points off. Still a nice little spot for the less adventurous.
