Can you Fed Ex enchiladas?

This sort of pains me to write this. But I think we found John y Betty's Seattle Mexican restaurant....just shy of two months after their frustrated and hungry selves picked up and left this town.

I've had my eye on this place for awhile, but they keep rather temperamental hours and it hasn't happened yet. Until Saturday evening.

The restaurant is to the right of this Cafe Fiore on the corner of 80th and 32nd Ave NW (it's about a 10 minute walk from our place):





And for the love of everything holy, it's so fantastic!!!! It's called Cocina Esperanza. It's been kickin' it near North Beach since 2003. They play terrible, terrible Mexican pop music. The chips are second rate and need a generous handful of salt, but other than that, it was outstanding.

Check this out. This was my soon-to-be-demolished cheesy enchilada dinner:



It came with pinto beans and roasted potatoes, and full cloves of roasted garlic. It was ridiculously good.

Here's Brian's Carne Asada. Hmmm, it looks way healthier than mine:



We also shared a really great pitcher of Sangria. It was probably the best Sangria I've had since my NYC days.

The restaurant is a perfect size for a birthday party, I have to see if they'll rent it out!!!!!

Tuggy... Buddy. I'm sorry that we failed in our search to locate the perfect Mexican food restaurant while you were here, but I guess that means you and the Shiba will have to visit soon!

Appropriately called Cafe Esperanza, i.e., there is hope for great Mexican in Seattle after all!
