Fiesta oaxaqueña opens restaurant (Escondido)

Good news, fellow fans of Fiesta Oaxaqueña! They've opened a site outside of the swap meet! It's on Mission Ave., between on Escondido Blvd. and Broadway, on the south side of the street. It's in the small shopping center with Casa Reveles and Escondido's Lao market.
I ate at the swap meet today and spoke quite a bit with the counterwoman about the new operation. It's called El Tejate, named for a beverage that they promise to serve soon. The menu will be the same as in the swap meet, but like at the meet, some items may not be available at all times. They plan to also serve nieves (ice cream) like limon, tuna, and leche quemada. They opened yesterday, and she said they should be serving the full menu by next weekend.
Sounds like they're planning big, so let's get out there and support them!
Our lunch at FO in the meet today was the best ever. The empanada de quesillo was ethereal; I've never had anything like it. The dough melted in my mouth. The molotes were great, as were the usual tlayudas, tamal, gordita, and tacos.
