Chino’s in Capitol Hill is Porkcentric and Promising

4/12 update: Sadly, Chino’s menu has gone in the direction opposite of what I desired. “Blood and Guts” and “Menudo de Chino” never made an appearance, and now the pig ear salad is gone. New additions include burritos and rice bowls.

Last week brought the opening of Mezcaleria Oaxaca, La Carta de Oaxaca’s new sister restaurant in Queen Anne. Excited to see more diverse (and quality) dining options at the top of the hill, I was excited to check it out.

Biting my tongue at Rancho Bravo

Churros, chilaquiles, and more at Barrio
