LA Weekly Reviews E.K. Valley, the Newest Oaxacan Restaurant in Culver City

On the LA Weekly blog, Barbara Hansen reviewed E.K. Valley, the new Oaxacan restaurant on Washington Boulevard in the Art District of Culver City. Explaining that the owner, Epy Garcia, and his wife, Tobias, are both from San Miguel del Valle, Oaxaca, Hansen says that the menu is simple:

"basic tacos and taquitos, carne asada, grilled chicken and enchiladas, but also the Oaxacan tlayuda, black beans, a choice of meats, cabbage, tomatoes, avocado....

"You can have Oaxacan red mole as the sauce for enchiladas or as a main dish with meat. It's technically red, meaning made from red chiles, but the color is a deep, rich brown.

"Beef barbacoa, chunks of beef in a dark sauce, comes with pinto beans, like most California Mexican food, but also with grilled eggplant and green pepper, which is much better than carbo-loading the plate with rice."

E.K. Valley is located at 6121 Washington Blvd.

My wife Susan and I enjoy our walk over to EK Valley for dinner.  The McManus/Art District now has such a wonderful variety of good restaurants
