Where to Eat in Oaxaca

The Oaxaca gastronomy is internationally famous due to the complexity of many of its dishes, and the selection of ingredients that take part in the elaboration of moles, memelas, tamales, and grasshoppers. The moles, for example, vary in the type of chiles used for its preparation, along with about twenty other ingredients that make this dish one of the most exquisite of Mexico´s gastronomy. Exotic ingredients transform into a mix of dishes that adorn the kitchens of the best gourmet Mexican restaurants with red grasshoppers and ants.
