Oaxacan food experience

For the ultimate Oaxacan food experience, look no further than our restaurant. At La 15 Y Salsas, we take pride in serving the best of Oaxacan cuisine, prepared with love and expertise by our chef and owner, Elizabeth Hernandez, who hails from Oaxaca herself.

Owned and operated by Elizabeth Hernandez, originally from San Antonino Castillo Velasco, Oaxaca. Our history begins at the corner of 15th Ave and Hatcher Rd thus the 15 in our name. We have been sharing our traditional cuisine and culture since 2012. Growing up In Oaxaca chef Elizabeth Hernandez learned to cook our traditional Oaxaca dishes when helping her mother and grandmother cook at home. After immigrating to the US, she was eager to share her food with her new community here in Phoenix thus  Las 15 Salsas was born.
Discover the true essence of Oaxaca with our standout dish – the fragrant and flavorful black mole sauce. Elizabeth masterfully creates this sauce using a blend of herbs and spices, some of which are ground using a traditional mealing stone. The result is a mesmerizing culinary creation that captures the essence of Southern Mexican cuisine.
But our delights don’t stop there. Indulge in our tlayudas, a crispy tortilla generously loaded with an array of mouthwatering ingredients, including beans, lettuce, tomato, cheese, and your choice of savory meats. Each bite is a harmonious symphony of flavors that will transport you to the streets of Oaxaca.
