This is probably the most underrated restaurant in Mexico City. Oaxacan food is my favorite Mexican cuisine and a friend from school recommended this place. The location is ideal, in the heart of Polanco. They also take reservations, which was great.   We walked in and were seated promptly. Service in DF is impeccable but they really take it to the next level. They make the salsa in front of you to your preference, which was a treat. I don't remember everything we had but I know we had a tuna appetizer and amazing mole enchiladas for the main course. My friend also loved their drinks! You must try their mole negro - it's the traditional Oaxacan dish. It has a chocolate taste and is beyond delicious! I went several times and I definitely recommend!
Amazing dishes from Oaxaca!
In a Mexico City neighborhood (Polanco), Guzina Oaxaca was well recommended by our friends because the owner is Oaxacan and also owns a restaurant and hotel in Oaxaca.  Chef Alejandro Ruíz  serves authentic Oaxacan plates in his outpost in Mexico City and we were super elated to try his cooking.  Twice a week, a truck makes the six-hour drive from the southern region to Mexico City to deliver dozens of ingredients. "We bring everything from hierba de conejo, chepiche, tlayudas, chocolate -- everything is made from Oaxacan ingredients," Mr. Ruíz said. "And more than just Oaxaca, from the regions of Oaxaca, where people still preserve traditional recipes." With that, we were treated to an amazing runway of dishes, never before experienced and more than umteenth times to be revisited. The warmth and hospitality at Guzina Oaxaca was insane--- where our waiters were seriously concerned that the kitchen did things right for us from the amazing moles to tlayudas (bitesized ), chapulines, (grasshoppers), greens, chiles and even the more pervasive art of making the salsa Oaxaqueña tableside and to taste: mild, spicy, Mexican spicy.  We picked the Mexican spicy of course.  I loved the people who work here. And dear God, thank you for introducing us to this glorious table of culinary tastes,  traditions and history.  Not once did I hope I would experience Oaxaca in Mexico City and Guzina, a surprise find, delivered one of the most intriguing and delicious meals I've ever had. At the end of the dine, as though you couldn't possibly eat another bite, a tray of handmade Oaxacan house made chocolate bites (dark, unrefined, raw & sexy hot) was offered with warm smiles  on our way out--- sealing the memory of a glorious meal to be repeated often.
