A Visit to La Choza Restaurant the Best Mexican Food in the United States

La Choza Restaurant Santa Fe: Authentic Mexican & New Mexican Cuisine & Local Flavors Await

In the labyrinthine streets of Santa Fe, New Mexico, where adobe structures whisper tales of tradition and artistic innovation, lies a culinary haven that’s not a secret to anyone in and around this unique city: La Choza Restaurant. A little off the beaten path, away from the tourist “hubbub,” this Mexican food restaurant offers a feast for your senses that genuinely transcends mere sustenance. La Choza Restaurant is without a doubt the best Mexican and New Mexican food that I have ever had.

            On the corner of a residential street behind Santa Fe’s Railyard, and hugging the tracks, as you step through the vibrant doors of La Choza, you’re transported into a world where time slows and flavors reign supreme. The ambience is a harmonious blend of rustic charm and understated elegance, inviting you to unwind and savor every moment. But bear in mind, do not forget to make your reservation, because you will find yourself waiting for up to three hours or more for a table. Although La Choza is worth a three hour wait, it’s avoidable so make your reservation.

The menu at La Choza is a reminder of the rich tapestry of flavors that define the southwest culinary landscape. Each dish is a masterpiece, crafted with care using locally sourced ingredients that showcase the regions’ vibrant bounty. From the smoky heat of green chiles to the earthy sweetness of blue corn, every bite tells a story of tradition and heritage. La Choza’s enchiladas are a thing of beauty, stuffed with your choice of filling and smothered in your choice of red or green chile sauce. After your first bite, you will find yourself planning your next visit.

            Santa Fe, New Mexico is a trove of amazing foods and restaurants, and La Choza’s sister restaurant, the Shed in downtown Santa Fe, has become a tourist favorite, and for good reason; however, a trip to Santa Fe cannot be complete without experiencing a meal at La Choza—the restaurant is the soul of the city.
