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.

The best places in Seattle for celebrating your big day (or your friend’s who put you in charge of planning).
More spots in Capitol HillSee more
Momiji is a Capitol Hill sushi spot that works for a low-key happy hour, but also a sake-filled birthday dinner.
Dino’s Tomato Pie
Dino’s is one of few places in Seattle that knows how to do New York pizza. It’s one of our favorite spots in Cap Hill for dinner and drinks.
More Mexican spotsSee more
Rumba is a great Capitol Hill substitute for a tropical vacation - island vibes, Caribbean/Mexican/Argentinian snacks, and flaming tiki drinks.
Tacos Chukis isn’t a secret anymore, but it’s still great. Hit the Cap Hill spot for fast, cheap Mexican food.
There are a lot of Mexican spots in Bellevue, but Señor Taco is the best. Don’t leave without getting the fish tacos.
Suggested by our writers
Copal is a Mexican spot in Pioneer Square that put a lot of effort into making a great space. The food needs a bit more of that effort.
Japonessa somehow pulls of Japanese-Mexican fusion, and it’s a great place for a birthday dinner or date night downtown.
