    "A Mexican restaurant in the Asian quarter is a rare find in any city. A good one is even rarer. Here, the cuisine is of the highest standard. It’s authentic while retaining its own epicurean charm in terms of perfection. Am I going overboard? Let’s put it this way: For Mexican food, it’s amazing. For any cuisine of any kind, it’s top. The food is enhanced by the chef’s commensurate skills in both ... read more >

    "A venue serving the finest of Mexican cuisine. The dishes are inspirational serving authentic Oaxacan cuisine. Those who don’t like just tacos and burritos will enjoy the myriad of options from the menu at Guelaguetza. Try the cheese quesadilla or their tender and juicy Red Mole chicken, but nothing disappoints. The restaurant also features grilled cactus which is well worth sampling. If you're t ... read more >

    Fantastic mole enchiladas here. You can get three kinds of mole here, plus a side of generously portioned chips. The tortillas are handmade and given freely. There is a very good fondue appetizer. Some of the seafood is deliciously enhanced with citrus. The special dish is the chilis en nogada, with the flavors from each ingredient given free rein in the mouth. Certain Mexican joints would drown s ... read more >

    The tortillas are herb pressed here, which goes to show the trouble gone to enhance each dish. Menu items include a wonderful sea trout dish with gazpacho sauce. Other seafood available include seared black cod and shrimp tacos. The gazpacho is great here, either in soup or sauce form. A mix of savory and sweet, with cheese and fruit combining to provide a full rendering of Heaven to the taste bud ... read more >
