ISO Oaxacan specialties

Meema | Jan 30, 2006 09:34 PM

Just returned from a trip to Oaxaca, Mexico, and am craving the following:

* tejate (typical Oaxacan drink made of toasted corn, cacao, cinnamon, and the seeds and flowers of a fruit called mamey)
* tlayudas (char-grilled tortillas filled w/ refried beans, salsa, queso fresco, tomatoes, etc.)
* truly good tamales w/ mole (the ones we had in Oaxaca were so light & fluffy, better than the ones I've always enjoyed here in Bklyn)
* really fresh queso fresco & crema Mexicana (got treated to homemade versions of both at an organic market in Oaxaca & it's hard to settle for less)
* roasted peanuts with chiles & toasted garlic

Thanks!
