Seattle Weekly's Description
Not surprisingly, White Center's El Paisano Rosticeria Y Cocina, which is owned by the butcher shop two doors down, specializes in meat. Its Mexican-style roast chickens vary from crackling-skinned to dry, depending on how long they've spent out of the oven and under the heat lights. Uniformly fantastic: tacos filled with moist and porky carnitas, creamy octopus served in a tomato-based coctel campechana, and goat birria stewed so long that sheer lethargy keeps it from disintegrating. Given the portion size, a small plate should be all you need.
Tips from foursquare
Gems like this White Center taquería are diamonds in the rough -- warm and friendly service in small comfortable cafe serving workmen-sized hot lunches and the best huevos rancheros in town.
Super good authentic Mexican food.
Awesome tamales at a dollar a piece!
try the al pastor! free housemade trio of salsa and chips w/ your order.
Brains taste good ;}
