El Quetzal

Beacon Hill is home to El Quetzal, which serves some of the best Mexican food in Seattle.

But I rarely go here because their beverage list is not extensive enough for me.

Hey, I happen to like beer with my chips and salsa; that's no crime. But since last night I drank enough cerveza por dos noches, El Quetzal sounded perfect.

And it was.

This fried corn huarache contains black beans layered within the dough. It's amazing.

I usually try to avoid sour cream (in fact, I could eat it by the spoonful from a pint container), but that huarache looks mighty tasty.

That beverage list is unsatisfactory, but I think it's cute they offer milk and apple juice. I don't know what sidral mundet is. Should I?

I love that place. The tortas son MUY grandes.

I have been told that because they are a "family" restaurant- they won't get a beer and wine license- I wish they would change their minds.

Yeah, I talked to him once about getting a liquor license, and he said it was too expensive. Dang.

Sidral Mundet is a Mexican apple drink, apparently. I had Diet Coke.

Horchata is good enough for me, and they've got that!
