Wolf says SI! to SEIS Kitchen eatery

Poc Chuc


Gloria Wolf, food critic

Light, bright, and fresh enjoy the food at Seis Kitchen restaurant in Oro Valley. Originating as a food truck specializing in Mexican street food, the restaurant highlights the six culinary regions of Mexico.  The regions represented are Yucatan, Northern Mexico, Mexico City, Baja, Puebla and Oaxaca.  Having lived in San Diego for a long time, we are very familiar with the Baja region of fish tacos and ceviche. In Central Mexico you will find mole sauces, a variety of chiles and barbacoa, a Mexican influenced braised beef. The Oaxaca region in southern Mexico is also known for mole sauces and large tortillas topped with beans and cheese.

Seis Kitchn is a casual restaurant where you place your order at the counter, collect your drinks, and then sit either on the patio or inside and wait for your food. We were at this restaurant for lunch and the wait was short. Items came out one at a time, so not all guests got their food at one time.

The food was beautifully presented and represents Mexico’s street food, including fire-roasted salsa, house-made tortillas, in-house filleted sea food, cage-free and naturally raised poultry, and black beans soaked and cooked in-house. There are also vegan menu selections, many including calabacitas, a blend of squashes sauteed in chile mojo de ajo, a garlic sauce consisting of olive oil, crushed garlic, salt and citrus juices. Other vegetarian selections include beer-battered avocado.

You may be able to tell by these descriptions that the food is very lively and flavorful. Along with the variety of menu selections you can find an extensive beverage menu, including cocktails with the ubiquitous margarita, baja punch, and Paloma including daily varieties of agua fresca. The usual beverages are also available, including soda and iced tea.

I tried the Poc Chuc grilled chicken tacos. I liked that I could order two or three tacos. The tacos were served with cabbage, onion, cilantro and queso fresco. With the tacos you get a side order and a small cup of selected salsa, whether you prefer mild, medium, or hot. Others in our group ordered the carnitas, and the baja fish tacos. All were happy with their meals. Sides include black beans, smashed beans, cilantro rice, calabacitas, or a side salad.

Many of the menu items are award-winning items from this family-owned business with three award-winning restaurants. Open for Breakfast, lunch, and dinner and not far away at 9740 N. Oracle Road, #110, in Oro Valley, check out their menu and locations at this site:

It was a very good meal. I ordered the fish tacos, one of my favorites.
