Ordering carne asada tends to be a gamble. The steak could end up too thin, dry, and reminiscent of a hot slab of leather with a hint of black pepper. But that’s not the case at Asadero. They specialize in DIY carne asada tacos - think filet mignon, medium rare, served to you on a sizzling skillet with corn tortillas, salsa, and lime. It’s a pretty incredible experience if you’re into beef, and they do also have chicken, fish, and some vegetable dishes too. But you’re not here for any of that. You’re here for some almost pink wagyu and an even pinker hibiscus margarita.

There’s a lot of good Mexican in Seattle, but Mezcaleria Oaxaca in Capitol Hill also has an excellent rooftop.
Gracia is a cute, but pricier Mexican spot you should hit up during happy hour. The $4 tacos are very much worth the early dinner.
