Seattle Weekly's Description

The television's always on in this homey, bright-yellow restaurant, and half of the tables are turned so that the customers can watch their favorite comedy hour while they snack on tlayudas (Oaxacan pizzas), mole enchiladas, molotes (corn fritters stuffed with potatoes and chorizo), and other Oaxacan favorites. El Sabor makes its own tortillas to order, and stocks more of Oaxaca's famed seven moles than any other restaurant in the Puget Sound area. Some taste like imported, jarred pastes (the green and yellow are especially bland), but the black mole has an intoxicatingly complex blend of spice and fire, sweetness and smoke.
