Abrazo a la Oaxaquena


The mole pipian is made with pumpkin seeds and tomatillos, and mole almendrado has a base of almonds. But most impressive of the lot is the classic mole negro that he pours over his pan-fried chicken. Black and glistening, the dominant flavor is dark savory chocolate, just the way it should be. In terms of chili heat, it's not more than mildly tongue-tingling, but the combination of other flavors -- Kato says he blends in more than 20 spices -- is rich and satisfying on the palate.

In line with COVID-19 guidelines, the government is strongly requesting that residents and visitors exercise caution if they choose to visit bars, restaurants, music venues and other public spaces.
