In most ways, La Loba is a neighborhood mezcal bar south of Prospect Park. There’s a huge list of cocktails and agave-based liquors you may or may not have heard of before, and you order everything at their little bar. But what separates this place from other drinking spots is its excellent Oaxacan food - like ceviche tostadas, panuchos, and massive tlayudas with chorizo or mushrooms. There’s an open kitchen in the back dining room, and you can watch them cook all of their corn tortillas from scratch. On the weekends, there’s usually live music, and when it’s nice outside, you should come here after hanging out in the park and drink a cocktail in their backyard.
