It's Alice Waters' favorite restaurant in Oaxaca, so I guess it stands to reason that I would enjoy it too! Itatoní was a bit of an adventure to get to -- my parents and I didn't rent a car in Oaxaca so we braved the city bus system (at 4 pesos, 50 centavos bus fare was pretty easy on the pocketbook) and managed to get there with surprisingly little fuss.
The waiter was very helpful, and we ended up with some insanely delicious food -- tetelas which are kind of like the Mexican samosa, and memelas which you can see in the above picture. I also had orange/pineapple juice that was straight out of the fruits. What a tasty opportunity to mix it up!
