CAPITOL HILL— The owners of Woodinville’s Mi Tierra opened Fogon in early August 2012 in the Pike/Pine corridor or Capitol Hill. With traditional Mexican cuisine for urban palates, this restaurant is a new concept for the neighborhood.
Everything here is freshly made — from the chips and salsa to housemade tortillas, guacamole, and ceviche. The Ceviche with tender shrimp marinated in lime juice with tomatoes, onions, cilantro, cucumber, and carrots is a great starter.
The feel of the restaurant is reminiscent of something found in Mexico City. With freshly housemade tortillas, diners agree that the Carne Asade is one of the best — thinly sliced flame-broiled beef with grilled onions and fried jalapenos. Or try the Street Tacos with your choice of pork, carne asade, chicken or lengua (beef tongue).
Pair your entrees with the a drink from the tequila-inspired cocktail menu. The Ultimate Margarita made from scratch with fresh lime, Conmemorativo anejo, orange liqueur and simple syrup with chile infused tequila is fresh any day of the week.
