The "Best Thai Food" thread (see right below this one on the index) is starting to digress into more of a discussion on Oaxacan places in LA.

Jonathan Gold, The Man in such matters, wrote the following:

"Nah...you're okay with Oaxacan. There are about 20 Oaxacan restaurants in L.A. now, and even if
both branches of Guelaguetza should be sucked up to Alpha Centauri by mole-crazed aliens, you'll
eat extremely well at El Sazon Oaxaqueno, Texate or the newly reopened Tlapazola Grill"


But none of those places make the 17 (or whatever the number is) different kinds of mole that Guelaguetza makes, do they? I want ALL the moles...ALL the moles, Jonathan!

Which brings me to my next question...how do you order in that place? How to try maximum stuff? Will they give you little dishes of different moles to try, or must I bring 12 friends?

Shoot...I don't HAVE twelve friends in LA!

ciao
