We were searching for genuine local food but were not impressed by the typical restaurants so we decided to taste the Oaxaca’s cuisine: what a great surprise. The Oaxaquena was amongst the best eats we had in Mexico, still dreaming of my Chilalquile con frijoles!

Stopped for lunch while waiting for bus (station is conveniently just up the street). Mole negro with chicken was great, as was one of the soups. Attentive service, pleasant atmosphere. We didn't have much time, but the restaurant went out of its way to speed up our orders.

Life is good! Good Oaxacan home cooking in Palenque! Mmmm, Huevos a la Oaxaqueña con frijoles de la olla!!! What a great breakfast! Good enmoladas! What more could you ask? A decent shot of Oaxacan mezcal at a decent price. They got it!

Tip: try one of the especialidades de la Casa. Huevos a la Oaxaqueña con frijoles particularly good for breakfast, particularly with the house salsa (not too spicy, great smokey flavours). My breakfast and coffee were 80 pesos.
