It is no surprise that a visit to Oaxaca in Mexico instantaneously becomes a food tour given the amazing food and drink options coming from Oaxaca that have put Mexico cuisine on the culinary map.
Of everything that I indulged in while here, (and it most certainly was quite a bit, if not ask my pants) I thought it only fair to crown a winner. After all, I had searched high and low for the best eats in Oaxaca and had a plentitude of delicious options as far and wide as my eyes could see.
“Las Reyna’s” aka, “The Queens” food stall took the prize. Allow me to introduce you to the BEST place to eat tacos in Oaxaca; “Tacos De Cazuela Del Carmen”. Not only were the tacos delicious but the freshly at the moment made tortillas certainly upped the taco game. Being served by “Las Reynas” as they are known in Oaxaca truly added to the experience. They reminded me of the matriachs in my family when they are in the kitchen ensuring I was fed and having me try everything they had to offer. I left with a warm heart and a filled tummy.
Check out my cheat sheet below of what to order in their food stall when you visit:
- Choriqueso (Cheese & crumbled pork sausage)
- Costilla en Guisado (Pork rib in tomato stew)
- Tasajo con Quesillo (This beef strips with cheese)
- Papas con Rajas (Potatoes with poblano cheese)
On a freshly made tortilla, memela or torta.
I couldn’t forget to highlight some of the other exquisite options I delighted myself in while visiting this gastronomical hub including the highly acclaimed mole, mezcal, tamale and coffee.
In the guide below I share the top places to eat and drink including the must try items recommended and taste tested by a selfless foodie. (Someone has to do the job.)
