Señor Moose Café is not your typical Mexican restaurant. What once started as a modest breakfast nook, this homey café is now one of the most popular places in Seattle to enjoy authentic Mexican cuisine. Freshly fried chips come accompanied by a tasting flight of salsas, bean dip, and some of the best guacamole in town.

The unique and spicy plates offered at La Carta De Oaxaca are what Seattleites come for when craving traditional and authentic Oaxacan molé dishes.

Owner Scott McGinnis opened El Camion Adentro as an expansion of his popular food truck chain El Camion, which has received an insane amount of accolades for being one of the best food trucks in Seattle. The tacos are divine and come double layered with soft corn tortillas full of flavorful meat, cheese, house-made pico, and lettuce.
