El Destilado is the brainchild of 3 young guys from the US who became enamored with the culinary history and sublime ingredients of Oaxaca. Their mission is to provide excellent food and mezcal in a casual, accessible environment, tailored to locals and visitors alike.
At El Destilado, we offer dynamic tasting menus for those looking to immerse themselves in a rich culinary experience. Chef Val is constantly inventing new plates and tweaking classic recipes to showcase the best seasonal, fresh, and organic ingredients Oaxaca has to offer. We offer three options: a 6-course meal, a 9-course menu and a 12-course “Chef’s Menu” for the most adventurous of food lovers.
For those looking for some delectable snacks to accompany a mezcal or craft beer, El Destilado offers tasty bites, meant to share amongst friends and family.
