Holé Molé

Ever since  the Restaurant Reforma changed hands I have not had a dive for mole and my lunch life has been sadder for it.  Yesterday, on a Sunday no less, I ended up going to a very hippy dippy hole in the wall with Oaxacan fare on the menu. At El Apapacho half the menu is vegetarian.  I had the red mole (spicier) but most of the plates I noticed coming out of the kitchen had black (sweeter).  I had the emmoladas stuffed with potatoes and Oaxacan cheese.  My other veggie options were nopales or mushrooms. My friend had a beef huraches.  It´s also nice at lunch when there are fresh fruit juices by the glass or carafe on the menu.  Natalie had lemonade and I had Watermelon.  I cannot wait to go back.  The only down side was the slowness of the service but it seemed we arrived right after 3 other tables and it is a small kitchen.  El Apapacho Calle 62 no. 354 x 41 & 43 it´s an art gallery, it´s a bookstore, it´s a restaurant.

On my second trip this month I had the black mole which was even better than the red mole!   I would recommend you come before you are starving as it seems they make everything to order and the service is good but the cook is not fast.
