Do not be fooled by the low-key exterior of this restaurant (indeed it looks like a house and tables are set in the garage or the porch), this is one of the best meals you'll have in Oaxaca.
We stumbled upon this restaurant by complete circumstance. While scouting for wedding locations in Oaxaca, we happened to walk into the Botanical Gardens on the night of the Oaxaca Culinary Festival. The Spanish chef of a Michelin-starred restaurant was sitting next to us. While chatting we asked him what his favorite place in Oaxaca was, and he mentioned La Teca.
Next day we headed over, and the place did not let down. You are not there for the luxury, but rather for the food. From their own collection of mezcal, to the amazing local cuisine from the isthmus, this place is one of the most memorable of my life (more so than top NYC or London restaurants). Check it out!
