Comixcal Mexico City

Comixcal – Oaxaca is in town!

Before S19, on September 7, 2017 there was a huge earthquake that demolished a small town called Juchitán in Oaxaca. Comixcal, in Mexico City, turned itself into a collection center, managed to get a hold of a few trucks and delivered everything from water to tarps straight to Juchitán. That’s how I got to know this restaurant. 

It’s a small place with simple decoration; in the staircase wall there’s a mural representing an indigenous woman working with her hands, iconic image from Mexico. Their food is as amazing as their social work. 

On sunny days the inside is too hot, so I do recommend you sit at the tables set outside and enjoy being part of one of Mexico’s traditional colonias

Comixcal is the closest you will get to Oaxaca’s traditional flavors. The Tlayuda is one of the best known traditional dishes, a must at Comixcal if you ask me. Try it with one of Tierra Blanca’s crafted beers. 

But if you are into unconventional and bold flavors try the orange wood smoked pork ribs with the sour papaya dessert. There are no words to describe it, I just the need to go back and have it again. 

Into amazingly good and responsible Mexican flavors? Check out Tlaco and Pixza

Try visiting Cerro del Tepeyac before coming to Comixcal and finish by dancing in the streets at Kiosco Morisco, crossing the street from the restaurant.
