“Cocina Poblana is by far one of the best authentic Mexican restaurants in Emeryville and Oakland,” said Peter Sailsbery, a diner at Cocina Poblana. "The food is fresh, always on point and the staff is great when it comes to customer service.”

For fifteen years, chef Lito Saldaña has been sharing the art of fine Mexican cuisine with the Bay Area. His cuisine is inspired by the rich, French-influenced dishes of Puebla and the fiery rusticity of Jalisco, and carries with it the legacy of family dinners, handmade by his parents Mama Luisa and Don Pedro.

Lito was recognized for his savory Latin dishes at the Benchmark Institute of San Francisco’s festival, A Taste of Tequila and Tamales by the Bay with dishes such as Corundas de Puerco corma, known as tamales; and braised pork spare ribs paired with a sweet and tangy green sauce made of tomatillos and chiles de arbol, topped with Mexican cheese, sour cream, and pinto beans. The winning tamale this past year was an open-faced vegetarian corma, cradled in a steamed banana leaf and topped with mushrooms and rajas con crema, a cactus corma cooked in light olive oil and served with Mexican cheese, sour cream, and frijoles poblanos.

Besides a Latin-infused buffet with more than 50 items to choose from, the restaurant will also have a live Latin music performance with the John Olechea trio.
