"Customers can gather for a unique and exquisite dining experience," said Felipe Hernandez, one of the owners of Restaurante Monte Alban. "Come and enjoy our Oaxaqueña cuisine like our variety of moles, Tlayuda or Salvadorean cuisine such as the famous pupusa."
The most notable aspect of Oaxacan cuisine is its variety of moles, a type of complex sauce such as chile mulato, tomatoes, peanuts, avocado leaves, and chocolate were incorporated. While moles can be found in many parts of Mexico, Oaxaca has the greatest variety including negro (black), Colorado (red), coloradito (faint red), verde (green), amarillo (yellow) to mention a few.
Another one of Restaurante Monte Alban's famous dishes are pupusas of course, El Salvador's staple food. A pupusa is a thick, handmade corn tortilla delicately filled with a unique blend of savory fillings such as cooked pork, seasoned beans, a mixture of aged and fresh cheese or other fillings, and then placed on a hot griddle until the crust turns golden. They are served with generous topping of curtido, a tangy cabbage slaw lightly spiced with red chilies and vinegar, and then a generous amount of salsa is added as a grand finale.
