Cocina De Barrio To Bring Oaxacan Mexican Cuisine To San Diego's Point Loma

September 2, 2021

The owners of Oaxaca-inspired Mexican restaurant Cocina De Barrio, which opened its flagship location in San Diego's Hillcrest in late 2019, will soon open a new outpost in Point Loma. 

In November 2019, Executive Chef and co-owner of Cocina de Barrio Jose J. Flores teamed up with Swami's Cafe founder Jaime Osuna to open the first Cocina de Barrio restaurant in San Diego's Hillcrest community. In its nearly two year tenure, the all-day eatery has received rave reviews for its menu of Oaxacan-style Mexican cuisine.

A new Cocina de Barrio is in the process of being installed at the space that last housed a Swami's Cafe on West Point Loma Boulevard in the Midway area of Point Loma. Expect the same expansive menu as the Hillcrest location, featuring daily brunch offerings, tlayudas "Oaxacan pizza", enfrijoladas fried tortillas, tacos on hand-pressed tortillas, tamales, and a multitude of moles, as well as a full mezcal bar with cocktails, beer, Micheladas and wine. 

Cocina De Barrio is expected to open as early as this October at 3924 W Point Loma Boulevard in San Diego's Point Loma. For more information, visit
