Tikka Shaan Modern Indian

Fans of bold, vibrant Indian cuisine flock to Tikka Shaan for some of the most flavorful and creatively composed subcontinental specialties in the Seattle area.

Taqueria el Rinconsito

For authentic Mexican street food at its most savory and unapologetically flavorful, join the locals lining up outside El Rinconsito. Despite its humble taco truck origins, this perpetually mobbed hole-in-the-wall now has a spacious dining room where you can dig into generous helpings of their famous birria at your leisure. Birthed from the stews of Jalisco, birria sees beef chuck simmered low and slow until fall-off-the-bone tender in a complex, beautifully spiced consommé. Taqueria El Rinconsito serves theirs two ways: stuffed into corn tortillas as rich birria tacos, or as a bowl of heartwarming beef birria ramen with shredded cabbage, lime, and onions to garnish.
