We got advised by a waiter of a previous restaurant in Oaxaca to try out La casa de la Abuela. We were told that this was a place to try out some traditional Oaxacan dishes. The location of the restaurant is great. It is located right on the corner of Zocalo/Alameda. From our table we looked right at the catedral! A beautiful view! The service however was very businesslike (distant). All waiters were constantly in a hurry and seemed to have no time to answer questions we had on menu and its dishes. We started of with some chapulines colorados (fried grasshoppers in chili seasoning which is a traditional dish from Oaxaca area) served with tortillas, salsa and guacamole. Not bad in taste. For our main dish we had a tllayuda (type of mexican 'pizza') and tasado (sliced pounded beef). Both were good! Must say this place gave a good introduction to the typical Oaxacan food. For the price it was a good eat. Too bad the service wasn't what we expected.
