Restaurants trend in Oaxaca, like in any foodie city (and this is definitely a foodie place!). When my family comes to visit me here, we go out looking for the best food, and we found it here. I'm talking about food that hits your tastebuds and makes you pause to enjoy it, the perfect flavor and texture. Food cooked and... More

Step off the busy street into the front of the restaurant for some amazing food.... however, ask to be seated in the garden and you will be amazed at the beautiful setting. We ordered the tasting menu, which isn't listed as an option but they are happy to do it for you and you will be glad you did. Honestly... More

We went twice for dinner during our stay in Oaxaca. After a somewhat bland meal at casa Oaxaca, we found the food at la Teca to be much more flavorful. It is a simple, not ostentatious restaurant with honest home style cooking. Great stuffed dried chiles, delicious molotes de platano and wonderful black mole.

Seven of us admitted foodies ate at La Teca in the delightful patio garden. After drink orders, our waiter suggested (brilliantly) that we try a luncheon tasting menu, e.g. a sampling menu of their most authentic, signature dishes. We loved everything, and most especially the chicken tamales, mole with pork, and granaches. There were no "misses". We'd say this was... More

I first visited La Teca 20 years ago- when the tables were in the garage, and you were welcomed with a copa of mezcal. Now you are welcomed by a host outside the garage, who escorts you through a family type living room into seating in a beautiful outdoor patio, weather permitting. There are still tables in the garage. The... More

This restaurant specializes in food from the Isthmus of Oaxaca. The food was absolutely amazing. It is very small. The waitstaff were excellent. Can't say enough to praise this place!

This lovely place is mostly a house patio where you will feel at home. The cooking is real food from Oaxaca, with local and seasonal ingredients. They have their own mezcal too! You can try the fixed menu or going a la carte.
