We came across this restaurant wandering down the street, looked inside and it looked inviting. It had a sign for an all-inclusive breakfast for 50 pesos, a very reasonable price. We went ahead and ordered two plates of enchiladas. The food was delicious, and we...More

I loved spending the day shopping and cooking with Jose. The space itself is quite fun, with high ceilings and in the middle of a courtyard. We first made a plan of what to cook based on what I was into, rather than some pre-planned,...More

Sandra and I took a cooking class with chef Jose and we simply loved it. Knowing Mexican cuisine (and especially Oaxacan cuisine) has surprised us by the high degree of complexity it has, but at the same time chef Jose showed us how fun and...More

It started all very well with creating a menu, going to the foodmarket and did some mezcal tasting. But when we got to the cooking part everything was very unorganized, i was constantly asking what i could do. It seemed like half of the ingredients...More

Chef Jose Luis is serious, unpretentious... possibly the best chef in town. What he can do with moles, mushrooms, eggs, and other ordinary products is a mystery. And if I were interested in cooking rather than eating, I would become his student. We ate breakfast...More

At the time of writing, an undiscovered farm to table gem. Breakfast was great, hot chocolate made in a traditional style with orange peel and ginger was great. Food was excellent and the kids liked watching them prepare things. The building isn't really renovated so...More

If you like sophisticated takes on cuisine rooted in history and tradition, you will love Chilhuacle Rojo. For a very reasonable sum of 125 pesos, I had a four-course breakfast plus fresh juice, tea and coffee. The food was all incredibly fresh, delicious, inventive, and...More

As we were a large group (18) we did not order from the menu. Instead, our guide had asked the chef to prepare his choice for a light dinner. The results were delicious. Black bean soup, with ginger, Brussels sprouts, and carrots. Two moles with...More
