Caldo de Piedra (The Real Stone Soup)

Caldo de Piedra is run by the Gauchupin Family from San Felipe Usila.

The palapa-style restaurant is located on the north side of the highway, kilometer 11.9 heading to Tule from Oaxaca City.

The restaurant serves Chinanteca cuisine, including the famous Caldo de Piedra, literally ‘stone soup’ made with fish, shrimp and a few fire-hot stones.

Each dish is individually prepared — ideal for those who cannot consume shrimp, the ingredient can be left out. This particular dish is a signature dish of San Felipe Usila and cannot be duplicated without permission.

Visitors are invited into the kitchen to watch the process. Your selection of fish, shrimp or a combination is made to order with select herbs, challots, onions and tomatoes.
