Comfort food garbs your tongue in luxurious velveteen knickerbockers of flavor, as opposed to discomfort food, which clings to the face like an overtight ascot. Avoid the embarrassment of culinary crampers with today's Groupon for dinner at El Mestizo. A Best of Seattle award winner this year in Seattle Weekly, El Mestizo harnesses fresh ingredients—as well as daily-made salsas and sauces—to craft authentic Mexican fare. Check out the dinner menu's healthy sampling of homemade tortillas, tamales, tacos, and classic entrees, as well as several vegetarian offerings.
- I, too, was impressed — not just with my dinner but with the cosmopolitan menu at First Hill's El Mestizo, whose selection features a wide-ranging palette of dishes from varied south-of-the-border states and cities rather than just your standard northern Mexico fare. – Marc Ramirez, Seattle Times
- But what is greatest about El Mestizo—besides the tortillas, which you may eat throughout—is the meat. Do you like mole? Mestizo's mole is neither too nutty nor too sweet; it's rich without greasiness, deep like cacao instead of cloying, mysterious with its secret mix of chilies rubbing up against each other. – Bethany Jean Clement, The Stranger
