Tacos al pastor – La Carta de Oaxaca

Tacos al pastor - La Carta de Oaxaca
Barbecued pork in homemade tortillas with cilantro, onion and hot sauce. $6
La Carta de Oaxaca, Seattle WA

Hmm, again, this tasted good but I wasn’t totally impressed. Perhaps I’m just spoiled from living near the Mission in San Francisco where I can get authentic, delicious tacos any time and for less money.

Mole negro oaxoqueno – La Carta de Oaxaca

Mole negro oaxoqueno - La Carta de Oaxaca
The house specialty. Black mole with chicken, served with white rice and tortillas. $11
La Carta de Oaxaca, Seattle WA

Omg, this was the smallest portion of chicken I have ever received at a restaurant. It was a small chicken thigh with the bone in so you even couldn’t count the volume of the bone! What a joke – this was more a snack than a proper lunch. While the mole was tasty and there was a lot of it on the plate, there was very little protein to enjoy it with. When I have money to throw away, I may return to dine here…

Tortilla chips and guacamole – La Carta de Oaxaca

Tortilla chips and guacamole - La Carta de Oaxaca
The food here is very good, but I think it’s over-priced for the portions! I don’t know why Seattleites are willing to pay these prices for something that could easily cost a dollar or two less. That goes for the entire menu. $6
