A meal at Antequera de Oaxaca left kare_raisu craving more. Amarillo de puerco, nice pieces of pork tenderly absorbing the yellow mole, sit among al dente chunks of potato and crisp green beans. This is one hot bowl of deliciousness. Nice handmade tortillas on the side, too. Chicken- and raisin-stuffed chile relleno, with confetti rice and black beans, looks awesome—but a friend doesn’t offer to share.

The place seems to actually focus on botanas, the Oaxacan version of tapas. Memelas, which resemble sopes, are topped with black bean paste and fantastic salty cheese, the perfect snack.
