Guacamole – El Chupacabra

Guacamole - El Chupacabra
Basket of chips and salsa fresca. $3.99
El Chupacabra, Seattle WA

Unlike other food I had at El Chupacabra, they make decent salsa fresca and guacamole. Maybe next time I’ll just come and relax with a beer and snack on these.

Fish tacos – El Chupacabra

Fish tacos - El Chupacabra
Beer battered cod, cabbage, white sauce and pico. 3 on soft white corn tortillas served with tortilla chips and limes. $6.99
El Chupacabra, Seattle WA

These tacos were a little sad, so that’s why I’m glad they were only $6.99. The fried fish didn’t taste so fresh and the corn tortillas were cold and limp. The white sauce wasn’t even white! As elusive as a chupacabra, so was the pressence of a decent fish taco!

Salsas - El Chupacabra

Different salsas at the table (you’ll need them!).

House margarita – El Chupacabra

House margarita - El Chupacabra

Gold tequila, triple sec and their own sour mix, muddled limes, shaken and served on the rocks in a pint glass. $6
El Chupacabra, Seattle WA

These margaritas were decent. I asked for “no salt” but that’s a minor mistake. There were really annoying “ladies” sitting at the bar though and they were bullying a table of kids sitting nearby. Lame! The ladies seemed liked regulars so I guess they were permitted by the bar staff to bully other guests… 😦
