Cuisine

Food is a crucial part of everyday Mexican culture and celebrations, and Oaxaca is a perfect example. Known by some as the ‘Land of the Seven Moles’ or the Tuscany of Mexico, it’s culinary history is extremely rich.   The cuisine of Oaxaca is unique because the food varies greatly from region to region, Central Valley to the coast.   It is known for very specific specialties such as moles, segueza, large pizza-size tortillas called clayudas, quesillo, mezcal and of course chocolate.  Oaxaca offers delicious, sophisticated cuisine whether found in a local market stall, casual comedor or formal restaurant.
