The state of Oaxaca is large and very mountainous, with several ethnic groups and microclimates that generate a number of regional variations in indigenous foods. The state is called “the land of the seven moles”, with these are called black, red, yellow, green, chichilo, coloradito mole, all of different color and flavor, based on the use of distinctive chiles and herbs. The last, “manchamanteles” is really a chicken and fruit stew. The best known of moles in Oaxaca is the black mole, which is darker than the poblano mole and so thick and rich. It also includes chocolate, as well as chili peppers, onion, garlic and more, but what makes it different is the addition of a plant called hoja santa. It is the most complex and difficult to make. In the second place it is coloradito mole, which is often simplified and sold as an enchilada sauce.
Mole Verde, in contrast to the above, is always fresh with herbs native to the region.
In addition, in our restaurant El Andariego you can taste mezcal, which is a distilled alcoholic beverage made from the maguey plant (a form of agave, Agave americana) native of Mexico. The word mezcal comes from the Nahuatl metl and ixcalli which means “cooked agave oven”. The maguey grows in many parts of Mexico, although the majority of mezcal is made in Oaxaca. There is a saying attributed to Oaxaca on driking terms: “for EVERYTHING bad, mezcal, and for everything good too”. Enjoy the best flavors and splendid cuisine of Oaxaca in a beautiful environment, full of colors in which the mixture of smells and flavors are concentrated in one to achieve the best of culinary experiences
