Holy mole: this family-run Oaxacan eatery is a shrine to mole sauce (the choice of red, yellow, green, and black complements the restaurant’s bright interior). Have yours with everything from chilaquiles and tlayudas (Mexican pizza), to simmered chicken and pork, to tamales and enchiladas. Don’t miss the encyclopedic selection of mezcal.
