Taqueria La Terraza: A Cozy Mexican Diner
One of the city’s better though underappreciated Mexican restaurants, Oaxaca Grill, closed its doors months ago. But the site at 3447 W. Forest Home Ave. now has a new occupant, Taqueria La Terraza. The interior has not changed much, with a cozy dining room that has the feel of a North Woods log cabin. But nothing Oaxacan remains on the menu. The tacos al pastor are very good, though the menu ranges beyond that of a simple taqueria. Options include steak in salsa verde, six shrimp entrees and a breakfast menu. La Terraza, which also has a small bar, is a nice, out-of-the-way place. Have a bottle of Bohemia beer with the enchiladas suizas.
