Though Seattle is pretty far north of the border, excellent tacos do exist here if you know where to look: at low-key trucks tucked around the city, on the menus of various Mexican restaurants, and in a couple of unexpected places. At shops like Maíz, a tortilleria that opened in Pike Place Market last year, there’s a focus on masa and honoring heirloom varieties of corn. Meanwhile, spots like Marination Ma Kai offer satisfying Hawaiian-Korean twists to the dish, and a cafe in the University District serves bison and pulled pork on top of fluffy fry bread.
This map mainly focuses on trucks, counter-service spots, and casual restaurants known for their tacos.
