Combining tradition and innovation might sound like something out of a luxury car commercial. But that's exactly what's happening at Origen, where the food is definitely Oaxacan but presented in a fine dining context. Although there’s an à la carte menu—with options like fish in coconut sauce with peanuts, mushrooms and chepil sofrito, and enmoladas of duck confit—the tasting menu is the best way to experience Origen. Definitely check out this spot in the historic center of Oaxaca if you’re looking for a nicer sit-down dinner.
