So on friday, cinco de mayo, i thought it would be appropriate to get some mexican food. i went to monte alban (i think thats the name). its on santa monica blvd in west la in the same shopping center as mama voula's. i got a delicious papaya agua fresca to drink. it was not too sweet and quite refreshing. I order some sort of taco (sorry cant remember the name of this as well) with goat in it... i dont know, maybe goat is an acquired taste but i thought it had quite a vile taste to it. the highlight of my lunch was the tamal de mole. it was soo good!!! the great texture of the tamale with the rich and not too sweet mole sauce and pieces of chicken was absolutly delicious! i have had mole once or twice before this so i am not so sure how sweet or rich its suppose to be. where else in LA should i go for anything mole?
