THE BEST OF OAXACA
While 'best of' tends to be an overworked phrase -- 'lo mejor'
prefaces up to a third of Oaxaca City businesses" -- this
survey offered travelers and locals an opportunity to discuss
the nuances of Oaxaca.
the survey addressed specialized niches which makes Oaxaca unique.
Among the faves -- the Zocalo as a great place for live music,
Noticias for a daily newspaper and Casa de Mezcal as the city's
La Merced and 20 de Noviembre tied for best market.
There was no clear 'winner' for best mezcal, but most respondents
agreed that the best tlayudas are available on Libres street.
Best place for a hot chocolate? Mayordomo, where the beverage
is available hot or cold and you can buy a variety of chocolates.
The city's best view comes from Cerro Fortin's El Mirador and
Planeta.com will conduct a follow-up survey later in 2006.
