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.
