We went here and thought what a disappointment. If you are hungry for cheap food, this is the place for you otherwise skip it.

Ke-Ken is one of the sweet Oaxacano comida restuaruants, meaning that it serves a prix-fix meal for what Americans would call lunch every day. And the comedia is great.
This is a tiny spot on Pino Suarez, so small that you might miss it. The owner was a chef at a yacht club in California before he came home to Oaxaca, and the food ususally proves his skills. After eating many meals there, I recommend the pulled pork (may have another name). It's the best I've ever had. All the food is good, inexpensive, and feels very local with a tiny touch of class.

My husband and I have eaten here often. It is quite small - seating perhaps 16 people. I find the chairs really uncomfortable. Yet the food is quite good. Nice variety and always a few old favorites. We usually have the comida of the day. On Wednesdays he is serving Indian food and doing a fairly good job of it. Still needs work.
Especially like the soups.
I think the portions could be a little more generous. The wait staff is very pleasant. The chef speaks excellent english

This restaurant is wonderful. So far, we've eaten here 6 times. We've sampled a variety of different main meals-- All the main courses have been delicious. We haven't tried all the desserts. After our first taste of the flan, we just can't imagine anything better. It's amazing.

Ke-Ken was recommended by a fellow Spanish student who stayed a few doors from their restaurant and I'm glad she recommended this restaurant. I ate here 3 times during my stay in Oaxaca. The daily special is reasonably priced at around $5 and is very filling and satisfying. Tried a burger from their place which was quite good also. I ate at a few higher priced restaurants and this one, in my opinion, is just as good for a third to half the price. The place is smaller and the service is exceptional. They take very good care of you. I am glad to see they have made it on to Trip Advisor. Would definitely recommend visiting this place and I plan to eat here again when I return to Oaxaca.
