The details of my life are quite inconsequential. My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery…

La Carta de Oaxaca (wahaka) is a great Mexican...

La Carta de Oaxaca (wahaka) is a great Mexican restaurant with good quality eats from the Oaxaca region of Mexico. The atmosphere is very charming with photographs and regional displays on the wall and the staff is friendly. Sitting at the counter is a great experience since you get to see your food being made.

Needless to say, the carne asada taco here is great! Some would say the best in Seattle. But what really makes this place special is the Mole which I hear is a Oaxaca specialty. It’s not for everyone, but the dish is definitely unique as it’s prepared with chocolate as one of the main ingredients.

So next time you’re in Ballard and you’re craving great Mexican food, try this joint.
