La Biznaga offers some interesting takes on traditional Oaxacan flavors. The restaurant is in a partly covered courtyard. The menu is extensive, and many dishes feature unusual and tasty-looking sauces. We tried bananas wrapped in thinly sliced chicken breast with a slightly sweet sauce, and a small steak in a tart, dark sauce. Drinks are generous and generously poured. Biznaga seems popular with both locals and tourists, and we had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. Service was a little slow, but again, the place was busy. Two mains with an appetizer, three drinks and a tip ran us about 500 pesos, somewhere between US $35 and $40, moderate by U.S. standards but a little high for Oaxaca, we thought. Nevertheless, we'd go back.
