What: Harvested from Oaxaca’s forests, the herb poleo tastes like mint when stewed in a tea (te) and makes a refreshing, palate-cleansing finish to a meal. Or, as some say, a good and hydrating hangover cure.
Where: We found this at La Olla (Reforma 402). Given the midday heat, we took it to go with a cup of ice to make a minty iced version of it.
When: Mon-Sat, 8am-10pm
Order: Te de poleo (20p). If you’re eating at this café, there’s lots of good regional food to tempt you: tostadas de salchicha (65p), sopa de frijol santanero (55p), quesillo en salsa verde (90p), mole negro de fandango (110p). Or you might be interested in their botana de olla sampler (140p), which offers a few Oaxacan specialties like cecina, tasajo, quesillo, chapulines, and memelitas on one plate.
