Profile

At this cantina and mezcal bar, the shareable plates come with housemade tortillas and the flavors from Oaxaca. The standout dish is the tlayuda, a large toasted tortilla layered with beans, cheese, avocado, and meat that’s sometimes referred to as Mexican pizza. Go for the one with La Loba’s house chorizo, which packs a harder kick and more flavor than typical variations of the meat. Other good bets include the ceviche tostada the nutty fried tortilla complements the briny, delicate fish and plays well with mezcal and the tetela, a trifolded tortilla stuffed with creamy queso fresca. But if it’s Oaxcan cheese you’re after, try the overstuffed quesadillas. Dishes are delivered one by one, so expect to stick around for a while.

Recommended Dishes

Tlayuda with house chorizo, $13; tostada de ceviche, $10; tetela, $7
