Fogon Cocina Mexicana is one of our favorite Mexican spots in Capitol Hill. The vibe is upbeat, you can watch them make tortillas in the front, the walls are all lime green, and the fajitas are made with wine, beer, and tequila (and they’re really good). Come for a group dinner, or have a solo meal at the bar, and don’t leave without getting the al pastor tacos.
