Expert Recommendations

"The masa is nice and tender, and the pork filling is both rich and sweet. La Carta is a popular restaurant among chefs for many reasons, and this is one of them!"
"The food in general at this Oaxacan restaurant is as authentic as it gets. Watching the cooks making everything from scratch, including the tortillas and labor-intensive mole, brings a tear to my eye."
"This isn't a large plate, but it packs a lot of flavor. It's a braised chicken leg and thigh with a silky, smooth black mole that just melts away any worries you might have in life. Oh, and the white rice on the side is like butter."
"It's their house specialty, and it is truly special. You might have to wait a while to get a table, but the black chili mole with your choice of pork or chicken is well worth that wait."
