great find in Mexico City (oaxacan food)

fellow hounds,

i wanted to report on my meal at "La Bella Lula" a Oaxacan restaurant in Mexico City located in Ave. Revolucion, very close to "Metro Barranca" (Southern part of the city).

food was truly exceptional. we sampled several moles ("coloradito", "almendrado", and "negro"). all were excellent. we had "chapulines" (grasshoppers) which were excellent when rolled in a taco and sprinkled with lime juice. the tortillas were to die for - hand-made, and on the thick side. we also tried "tasajo", a cut similar to fajitas but not quite the same. the meat was soft, tender, and very flavorful. it was delicious.

this place is a must for serious hounds. food is exceptional, the place is non-pretencious (you go there to eat, not to be seen), and the prices are very affordable.

i look forward to going back to this place.
