OAXACA opened this past week in the former Homemade space next door to Andie Woo on Smith St. We got take out last night. Its a tiny space with a bench and some counter space. We ordered the 3 taco combo and the 3 enchilada combo, and a horchata to go (combo means with a side of rice & black beans). The food was not bad, but was also not oaxacan. Each taco & enchilada was a double corn tortilla, choice of fillings, enchilada with cheese & onions on top, guac & sr cream on side. Across the 2 combos, we tried fish, carne asada, pollo, and pork. They all had nice flavors and were better than just edible, but nothing stood out as stellar. The horchata had a nice flavor, but the consistency was very watery. I'd give it a C.
