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.

Must stop here if you are after authentic tradition food from the Istmo de Tehuantepec. Try the tamal for a start and then the istemeño platter. They're both outstanding!

The restaurant is very inconspicuous and easy to miss from the outside. The food is fantastic and very different from everything else we tried in Oaxaca. They specialize in isthmus cuisine (referring to the isthmus of Tehuantepec) from the eastern part of the state.

We visited here on a quiet evening, sat in the beautiful backyard, and had a good meal. I wouldn't rate it as one of the best I've had in Oaxaca City or even in the Colonial Reforma neighborhood, but it was well-prepared and the atmosphere...More

La Teca is a little removed from the restaurant precint surrounding the Zocalo but is worth the walk for great tasting tamales and crunchy garnachas. We found the serving sizes to be a little small, which could be perfect if you don't like stuffing yourself,...More

Traditional food from the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, all made when you order, all delicious. A garden area available when it's not too chilly or rainy. Wonderful art, and great service.
