Almú review image



View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Almú is located in the fields of San Martin de Tilcajete, a little town 45 minutes outside of Oaxaca. It’s the ideal place to begin or end a visit to one of the town’s alebrije workshops, where you can see and learn about these hand-carved wooden sculptures painted with natural dyes. All the dishes—like tasajo, a smoked and roasted dried beef, freshly made tlayudas, entomatadas, and tortillas stuffed with chicken and bathed in black mole—come in generous portions that can (and should) be shared. Bring some friends, grab a table made from a local tree trunk, and think about seriously getting into woodworking.
