We’ve having beautiful weather here in the Pacific Northwest, and that always gets me out looking for a Mexican restaurant with outdoor seating and hot salsa. La Cocina Oaxaqueña is just over I-5 into Capitol Hill and is perfect for these 80-degree days we’re having!

These are just a few of the things that makes La Cocina Oaxaqueña wonderful:

  • Outdoor Seating – Soak up that Seattle sun!
  • Handmade Tortillas – From a seat at the bar, you can watch as the tortillas are pressed and cooked right in front of you. It’s mouth-watering.
  • Freshly Fried Tortilla Chips – Always served fresh and perfectly salted.
  • Salsa Bar – A bounty of different salsas are at your disposal. Help yourself! It’s the perfect complement to those fresh chips.
  • Authentic Cuisine – With roots in the Oaxaca region of Mexico, the food is vibrant, fresh, and absolutely delicious. Come hungry; you won’t want to stop eating!


We’re already to November, and I feel like we haven’t properly paid homage to fall. I am a fall person through-and-through; my wardrobe consists of almost solely of scarves and boots, I like my coffee with pumpkin, and my evenings to be based around cozy fires.

I’m here to celebrate fall today through my favorite medium: images. Grab a warm blanket and curl up with a hot beverage. It may be cliche, but only in the best way.
