Tropicos Breeze

This local pick serves some of Seattle's best Latin food in a low-slung, unassuming building off Highway 99. Expect Salvadoran and Central American favorites like empanadas, carne asada, and fried sweet plantains. But to be honest, the pupusas hog all the glory: palm-size corn or rice tortillas stuffed with fillings like beans, cheese, chorizo, jalapeño, and loroco (the blossom of the Fernaldia pandurata vine). At under $4 each, two pupusas make an affordable, waistband-bursting meal when topped with hot sauce and curtido: a carrot, cabbage, and onion slaw fermented in a spicy brine rich in probiotics. Wash it all down with horchata, Inca Kola, or a bottle of Port Royal from Honduras.
