El Biche Pobre Review

This little restaurant east of Parque Paseo Juárez is packed with locals—sometimes there's not a tourist in sight—who appreciate the traditional fare like enchiladas suizas (with sour cream) and the prices. It's a 10-minute walk from the zócalo. You'll know you're there when you spot the huge green eyes painted on the side of the building.

    El Biche Pobre Review

    This is the best place in town for a botana plate, which is sort of a collection of little appetizers. I was told the place used to be a bar a long time ago, but turned into a restaurant on the basis of these snacks. Who knows? Don't go there for anything else!
    It is only for meat lovers, and it is cheap, huge, and delicious. I am a regular traveler to Oaxaca and this is the only restaurant I tell friends they must visit.

    Best in Oaxaca

    Assuming that you're the type who wouldn't dream of eating at McDonald's in Oaxaca...and you're looking for a great meal surrounded by locals, walk the extra few minutes to Biche Pobre. For my money, it's the best bet in town.
