We don’t hangout much in downtown Seattle but finally got to try the ever so popular Tacos Chukis. They have three other locations in town (Capitol Hill, Beacon Hill and Central District).
We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon (around 12:30pm) and it was bumping. A constant lineup of people waiting to order food. The inside is spacious with many tables inside along with a few seats outside. You order first, pay and then food is brought out.
The menu is small consisting of tacos (5 types), mulitas, baby burritos, quesadillas and tortas.
Basically, 7 items on the menu.
This helped to balance the flavours but man oh man, the adobada is overpoweringly salty. I couldn’t get over it.
Pollo asado was oddly dry and again, incredibly salty.
The nopales was decent but flavours were mute.
Mulita ($2.99 US)
The only difference is it’s served with monterey jack cheese and in between two corn tortillas. Almost like a hybrid between a taco and quesadilla. We got ours with carne asada. Again, the only meat we enjoyed.
TC’s tacos were okay but didn’t impress. Too heavy on the seasoning.
