Dinner so soon?

Being asked to join some friends for dinner a La Carta de Oaxaca in Ballard, a chance to have good Mexican food? Never pass it up, especially up here in Seattle no matter how much you've eaten earlier. Having re-located from the central coast of southern California, I have missed the Mexican food I sooo took for granted. It is always easier to look back and assume it will always be there, but as it turns out I have not been that lucky up here in Seattle, so when you find some place you like you go for it.

Well tonight everyone else was thinking the same, even though the restaurant was packed, the wait was not too long. They were turning them left and right so it wasn't long before we had a table and ordered up some wonderful flavors. I had the house special Mole Negro Oaxaqueno with the pork. The pork was lean and the mole sweet and savory with a hint of spice. The flour tortillas were chewy with a smokey taste that went well with the dark mole. And the great selection of salsas were as good as ever, different degrees of heat, but all with their distinct taste of spices.
