It seems that things have calmed down, so we've changed are plans and the girlfriend and I will be going to Oaxaca in mid-January.

There's a lot of overwhelming information about eating in Oaxaca out there, so can anyone provide (or point me towards) a simple, straightforward guide to the best eats in Oaxaca? We'll have about four days in the city, and our main interest is in rustic, traditional food, although we'd certainly try some "nueva cocina" (if that's the right term) if folks think it's worth doing. Street food as well.

As far as our budget... US$20-30 per person (not incl. drinks) for a meal would be a bit of a splurge, although we could do it once or twice during the trip.

So, break it down -- where do we need to eat, and what do we need to try?
