Taqueria La Terraza: A Cozy Mexican Diner
Nov. 10, 2009
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.
