A late-night visit to Las 7 Regiones (it closes at 10) is like crashing a family party: lots of familial groups, friendly, and rather loud, says kiwi.

The clayuda, a foot-wide, thin disc of masa lubed up with black bean spread and topped generously with Oaxacan string cheese, is near impossible to stop eating. But the real show-stopper is the mole negro—complex, sweet, savory, and just a lot of deliciousness. With chicken, the meat is tender, juicy, and thoroughly infused with that addictive sauce.

Mole amarillo with beef, on the other hand, just isn’t very flavorful.
