Los Pacos

Oaxacan in Oaxaca City

Moles are the prize here and, to aid your selection, the wait staff will bring you a free selection of seven of the revered sauces along with tortillas for dipping to help you make your choice. The mole negro with chicken rules, OK. They also offer tasajo (thinly sliced grilled beef) done 15 different ways.

There's another Los Pacos – older, more local and more family-oriented – in the Colonia Reforma neighborhood in the northern suburbs.
