Yelp Elite: Salvadores Mezcal x Monte Alban@Westwood ★★★

Yelp Elite Event: Salvadores Mezcal Tasting at Monte Alban. Free authentic Oaxacan food and Mezcal tasting, thanks to Yelp. Nice tasting portions. The Mezcal tasting was guided by Salvador. Unlike Tequila, Mezcal is meant to be drunk in small sips. Tobala Mezcal had smoky flavor with a hint of Citrus. My favorite dish of the night was Taco Enchilado de Picadillo, served in a yummy Red Mole Sauce, which will go well with anything. Food were generally spicy, so they paired nicely with the Mezcal. Flan had a sweet caramel flavor. Very friendly staff. They even demonstrated Oaxacan dance for us in conclusion of the event!
