El Naranjo

Oaxaca is often called the gastronomic heart of Mexico, and Iliana de la Vega and Ernesto Torrealba take their mission of bringing those traditions to Austin seriously. They put their own unique spin on dishes like mole nero, which is used here to top enchiladas filled with roasted duck meat and topped with panela cheese.
