Lesson: take your mezcal snob hat off and just enjoy some of the best mezcal you'll taste in Oaxaca City (for even better, find a way to visit an actual palenque in Santa Catarina Minas or Ejutla). You don't have to meet Ulises Torrentera personally...More

The tone and attitude of the attendants was really a piss-off-never-come-back. We experienced the rudest answer possible for simple questions about the (very poor) menu. As if we were experts on mezcal tasting.

We spent what is the average weekly wage of a skilled worker in Oaxaca on four shots, and the owners (including Ulisses) seemed disinterested and acted like they were jaded by tourists (even though we were speaking Spanish to them). It felt like they were...More
