Our friends opened their second Oaxacan restaurant on Saturday (La Carta de Oaxaca being the first) on top of Queen Anne and invited us to the soft opening earlier last week to try out the food and see the new space. Wow! The owners, Jon and Graham, were kind enough to let everyone order whatever they wanted off the menu at their expense! Everything we ate was SO good! We cleaned our plates and left excited to come back.
A dish I didn’t get to try but can’t wait to get next time is the Barbacoa de Cabrito – Chilé marinated and slow roasted goat, served with beans and corn masa Oaxacan style. The people next to us got it and it looked incredible! I’m also excited to try the Tacos Dorados – rolled and fried tortillas filled with ground pork and topped with black beans, salsa, guacamole, Oaxaqueño cheese and Crema Mexicana.
Be sure to try some Mezcal! Considering the restaurant is named after the Oaxacan alcohol, it might be a good idea:) Enjoy!
