If it’s summer in Seattle, you probably have rooftop tostadas and margaritas on the brain. And Mezcaleria Oaxaca is the cool taqueria that just read your mind. With handmade tortillas, an encyclopedic selection of mezcal, an interior that’s just as cool as the roof, a killer pork mole, and a great view of the Cap Hill sunset, we could weep. But we won’t, because nothing ruins a good time like the guy who’s crying into the guacamole.

Suggested by our writers
Japonessa somehow pulls of Japanese-Mexican fusion, and it’s a great place for a birthday dinner or date night downtown.
Copal is a Mexican spot in Pioneer Square that put a lot of effort into making a great space. The food needs a bit more of that effort.
