#2490 #S1229 - La Cocina Oaxaqueña, Seattle - 3/29/2014

There were 19 Mexican restaurants on Capitol Hill in the last count I saw, and this is definitely one of the best. La Cocina Oaxaqueña is run by an Oaxacan native who was once a manager in the family of restaurants that started with Ballard's Carta la Oaxaca and also includes Mezcaleria Oaxaca just three blocks up Pine Street. That family is widely regarded as Seattle's favorite Mexican, and I wouldn't know how to judge between that at La Cocina, as they are both very nice southern Mexican restaurants and my favorite would vary from dish to dish. Like the larger group, the bar is not the primary focus, but that doesn't mean they don't have some quite nice cocktail options with interesting infusions, and you can also order a magarita without fear of the awful sticky sweet mix so common in bars that don't much care.
