Our Story

At Sol Oaxaca, our name embodies more than words. It embodies our relentless passion, tireless effort, and deep commitment to showcasing the rich culinary heritage of Oaxaca. The word “Sol,” meaning sun, holds deeper significance as a symbol of life itself. It represents warmth, light, and happiness for all those around it.

Oaxaca is famously known as Mexico’s gastronomic capital, offering some of the world’s finest cuisine. It’s also the birthplace of Mezcal, a traditional, artisanal spirit that holds a special place in Oaxaca’s cultural identity. Mezcal is consumed during celebrations and used in rituals, with a reputation for its healing properties. Our goal is to bring the essence of Oaxaca to life through our food and drink offerings, allowing our customers to experience the richness of this incredible region.
