Cocina Oaxaca is the second restaurant from the same team behind La Cocina Oaxaquena, our favorite Mexican restaurant in the city. While we still think their first location is better, this is a great place to have an impromptu Friday night dinner with a group of friends or a burrito that will become your friend. The al pastor and the cod tacos are fantastic, and the salsas are free and unlimited - not unlike friendship. Also, get a side of rice, and thank us later.
