[SEA] South Siyeed!


Recommended Posts

Cocina el Sazon (some of their signs say Zason) is newish place in a cursed spot near my house in Boulevard Park. The specialty is Poblano dishes, including a killer mole poblano and the probably the best salsa I've had in Seattle. Get there soon if you're interested in trying it, it always seems empty and I fear for their survival. :( Address is 11850 Des Moines Dr S.

 

They lasted a year, but alas my prediction has come true; that's the bad news. The good news is the the replacement place, Tacqueria los Tahures, is crazy good. They seem to specialize in the nasty bits and offer some of the most flavorful meats I've had, plus house made tortillas. The owner moved here recently from L.A., where he had a restaurant and a taco truck, so he should know what's up. Looked like they stayed busy during their opening weekend. This place is definitely worth a trip for the taco obsessed among and even those with just a strong interest in authentic Mexican food. Please help me keep this place in business, I can only eat but so many tacos! :o

 

 

Mmmm, tacos.

Is Columbia City considered South Siyeed?? Sorry, I'm a Ballard girl so rarely go south of the ID but today had lunch at Island Soul which was really tasty! They have all their lunch options for $7.99 or less- a shrimp po'boy , green salad and Red Stripe put me back $13 and was excellent!

I would include Columbia City in my definition....

 

Bad news, Taqueria Los Tahures closed up shop quite abruptly and mysteriously less than 2 months after opening. I'm still sad about it. No idea what happened.

Had lunch at 88 Restaurant on Delridge in White Center yesterday. I had the rice plate with grilled pork, shredded pork and a fried egg. Excellent. In terms of flavor and quality of preparation, only Green Leaf stands out in my memory as being better.

 

Also, a special South Siyeed programming note: as of the end of June, the South Park Bridge is going to close permanently (thanks for visionary political leadership KC & Seattle!). Unfortunately, this seriously jeopardizes the restaurants along 14th since they rely on lunch biz from Boeing across the river. If you can find the time over the summer to 'head on down to South Park' for some tacos, barbacoa, tlayuda, whatever, they could use the business.

There is now officially only one answer to the question, 'where should I go for dinner near the airport?' Answer: Copperleaf at Cedarbrook Lodge. Much better than any other option really, especially in the immediate vicinity of SeaTac. And that's really not meant as faint praise. Pat and I had dinner there tonight and it was great. The quality of ingredients they're using is remarkable and prepartions are generally excellent (maybe a bit heavy on salt). My favorite dish was 'salmon bacon' (belly cured with brown sugar and salt, then slow roasted), served with a poached egg and melted leeks. We were comped agnolotti with truffle cream sauce, house cured lardons and squash that pure hedonistic deliciousness.

I've been eyeing Copperleaf. Seems likely a better get it while it is good destination.

 

My sentiment exactly. I'm hopeful, but not optimistic, that the restaurant will survive in its current incarnation.

Another very good dinner at Copperleaf last night. One of the overdone dishes of the restaurant world, but still a favorite of mine, the braised short rib on the new fall menu is excellent. Laquered a shiny black, served with syrah reduction, potato puree, braised quince and cubes of celery root, this version rises above the standard.
