Another day, another wonderful meal. This week of Oaxaca Sabe continues to be a remarkable series of taste treats.
Today, it was Casa Crespo with its well-renown chef, Oscar Carrizosa who presented a choice of menus. Once again, sister blogger, Shannon, had one of the choices and I, the other.
As we ate at a roof top table overlooking Santo Domingo, we watched all the Saturday afternoon action.
Shannon's meal was more photogenic, but mine was equally delicious. Plato de insectos (Costilla en mole de chicatanas, Queso Fresco con salsa de chapulines, tortilla de tuétano rellena de guacamole y gusanos de maguey) That's big black flying ants, grasshoppers and some worms..... party on, Garth.
I have eaten lots of insects this week and they were all the bee's knees.... I mean, very tasty.

We have now eaten at six of Oaxaca's best restaurants for under $90 US and some of the meals we've had would have cost all of that just for a single meal at many upscale eateries. And we have not even taken advantage of the beer, wine, mezcal, sticking to aguas. What a deal and what a meal!
