Origen Oaxaca and La Hormiga

Origen Oaxaca

Origen Oaxaca serves imaginative nueva cocina oaxaqueña.  Chef Rodolfo Castellanos who is a native of Oaxaca, attended the “Instituto Culinario México”, and has worked in Monaco, San Francisco and throughout México.  The restaurant is located in a pretty Colonial house on # 820 Hidalgo Street.  Like many places in Oaxaca they conduct cooking classes.  Their website is:

Pechuga de pato

Robalo con quinoa

Brunellos de chocolate con helado de limón verbena

Tacos de plátano

 La Hormiga

Jardin Conzatti is a park between Reforma and Andrés Quintana Roo and Valentin Gómez Farias and Jacobo Dalevuelta.  It’s a pretty space popular with young couples.  At the corner of Reforma and Valentin Gómez Farias is la Hormiga (the ant), a cart that makes tortas popular with those who live and work in that neighborhood.  The tortas range from 14 to 32 pesos depending on what you want on your bollo or bun.  Top price honors go to a cubano which is a Mexican version of the classic cuban which originally was started by Cubans working in Key West and Ybor City, Florida.  They have classic Oaxaca tortas as well.
