I'm afraid I was very disappointed with this meal - given we only had 5 days in Oaxaca, I felt afterwards we had wasted a meal to try the cuisine in this beautiful state at this restaurant unfortunately. I really wanted to like the place, as I like the decor - simple and clean - and the server, although not friendly, was efficient.
We had the stuffed zucchini flowers to start, which were fairly good. They are better with salsa though, as they are fairly dry. The two soups we had - the cream of zucchini flower and the veggie soup - were both disappointing. My cream soup was not hot, and was runny and lacking in flavour, and my husband's veggie soup was bitter.
The mains - I had the estofado con lengue (almond sauce with tongue) and my husband the tuna salad. I have to say, every salad we had had in Oaxaca up to this point was amazing, but this one was disappointing. No dressing at all on the salad, so no seasoning. The tongue was very tender, and the sauce was all right, but didn't make me want to take a picture to remember it.
All in all, I left feeling unsatisfied... not because my belly wasn't full, but because the food just wasn't as flavourful as I expected.
We had gone to Quince Letras earlier in the day (also Oaxaca food) and were blown away, so perhaps we had been spoiled.
