Mini Mercado Oaxaca - Closed

9407 N. Central Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85020 | North Phoenix | 602-395-0867

Location Description:

The small store may have only 10 tables, but the menu boasts more than 100 dishes. Regional specialties are attention-grabbing once the menu (it's all in Spanish, with exotic Oaxacan ingredients) is deciphered. Particular favorites: Botana Oaxaqueña (beef and special masa patties), tamales (wrapped in banana leaves with creamy masa), and the dynamite mole dishes.
