La Carta de Oaxaca - Am I missing something?

Papa Kip Chee | Apr 16, 2008 02:40 PM

OK, finally ate at Carta de Oaxaca - What is all the hype about. I was not impressed.

I had the Black Mole Tamale - All I could get was sweet, there was no underlying spice or character otherwise. Pretty bland...? Others in the group had Tacos Fritos and Tostadas - pretty normal choices, but they complained too. Overall we expected so much more, the way people go on and on about this place.

I will say that the staff and service was exellent for as busy as it was on a Friday night - that part was good.
