My favourite thing about living in New York so far is discovering places I never would have found as a tourist.
I was taken to the place by a true blue New Yorker, and I had to share it. So on a rainy Friday (thanks Hurricane Joquain) we ran round the corner for some delicious tacos to warm ourselves up. Oaxaca is pretty inconspicuous, so you would never notice it if you didn’t know it was there.
Inside it’s cosy and brightly coloured.
We both went for the taco special – 3 tacos, rice and beans for $10.95. I had the chorizo, barbacoa (braised beef tenderloin), and carnitas (braised pork shoulder).
All the tacos are double wrapped, and stuffed to the brim with succulent, delicious fillings.
It’s safe to say we dug in pretty quickly.
I of course finished mine all off.
So, lunch hour over, we trudged back in the rain fully satisfied (and a little tired) from our Mexican feast.
I definitely recommend Oaxaca if you’re in the midtown area. In the meantime, check out their Instagram and Menu below.
