Boyle Heights — Situated on the tiny corner of Forest and Wabash avenues near the Northern edge of Boyle Heights, X’tiosu Kitchen, with its bright baby blue signage, is a unique restaurant that offers a culinary blend of Oaxacan and Lebanese food.

X’tiosu, pronounced SH-TEE-OH-SUE, means “thank you” in Zapotec, a group of languages spoken by one of Mexico’s largest indigenous ethnic groups. Owned by brothers Felipe and Ignacio Santiago, its culinary roots are in Oaxaca. The brothers arrived in the United States 14 years ago and started working in the restaurant industry as dishwashers. They eventually rose in the ranks and became chefs.

In October 2017, they opened X’tiosu.
