La Teca was recommenced to us by Reyna Mendoza, who has the cooking school El Sabor Zapoteca in Teotitlan del Valle. Reyna guided us well! A ways away from the historic center of Oaxaca, you may need a cab to get here. But it's worth it! we had the tasting menu for about 17 dollars. There were more courses than I can remember, but I do remember they were all good. La Teca advertises itself as food from the isthmus, which is a little south of Oaxaca, but they had some nice moles. I wish I could remember everything we had, but right now I can't. But I can remember they were all very tasty. The service was excellent, too!

Surprisingly good food ... after arriving at itanoni at their closing time, a local recommended we try la teca. We could yelp to b unhelpful so we decided to take a chance. The server recommended a Plato which we tried ... as assortment of of stuff .. including chicken & we also ordered a tamale ! We were sold ... neighbor grungy place that is well worth the try ! Love the Oaxaca tamales ...

If your looking for authentic ITSMO cuisine, these place is the real flavor, color, texture, taste, and people.
In a relax and low profile neighborhood house these restaurant is but far in a relation price quality the best Ismo food that you can find in Oaxaca city.
Don't leave without trying the "estofado itsmeño" or the "chile relleno" with a concise menu is easy to try almost everything and all of it is worth tasting!

If you like fried food, fish and meat, this is the place for you. Offering authentic recipes from the Isthmus, this is a very popular place with locals and tourists from across Mexico

This was the best meal during our stay in Oaxaca. The Plato Ismeño is fantastic, the chile relleno, the estofado, the enmoladas, and the house mezcal, all excellent. We went back the next day. Make reservations!
