I will be in Oaxaca City in July and hope to become familiar with traditional Oaxacan food. I hope you CHs will give me your recommendations for places to go. Looking at the archives, I have seen several mentions of La Biznaga, which I definitely want to try, and Casa Oaxaca gets lots of mentions here and elsewhere. But, neither of these places seems to be traditional. Where have you found the best traditional foods in a pleasant (definitely need not be fancy) setting in the general area? (I should mention here that Nancy C mentioned Alejandra's in 20 de Nov market for "AMAZING" tamales, and I won't miss that, but I am travelling with 3 other women who may not like eating in markets like I do!) Your help will be appreciated! BTW, I am registering for a class with Susanna Trilling's school and am looking forward to that. I first tried to register with Pilar Cabrera, but she wasn't responding to my msgs so I gave up. The trip is being planned by the driver of the car, and she needed a date in order to accomodate my desire to cook in Oaxaca. Thanks, Dee
