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.

Japonessa somehow pulls of Japanese-Mexican fusion, and it’s a great place for a birthday dinner or date night downtown.
Fonda La Catrina
If you end up in Georgetown needing sit-down Mexican, you have little choice but to go to La Catrina. It’s not the best, but the tamales are good.
