I am dreaming of dinner at XICO tonight.
What to order? A happy dilemma!
Their rotisserie chicken dinner for two with rice and beans and fresh tortillas?
Guatemalan tamales with chicken: two Mayan chicken tamales wrapped in banana leaves, stuffed with poached chicken in a fantastic sauce?
Perhaps the black cod pozole, or the goat barbacoa?
Whatever I chose, the food will be freshly prepared and beyond delicious!
To describe XICO as a Mexican restaurant is like calling a Ferrari just another car.
Yes, it is a Mexican restaurant. Just as a Ferrari represents superior Italian design, XICO offers authentic Oaxacan cuisine.
The owner Liz and chef Kelly visit Oaxaca often to refine their already impressive knowledge of authentic Oaxacan food.
Ingredients are sourced locally and prepared using old Mexican methods including grinding fresh masa.
A winner of numerous awards, XICO strives to be the best and they are!
It is a beautiful place with colorful interior decor, an event space and, when the weather cooperates, wonderful patio dining. You will feel like you are deep in the heart of Mexico!
