I remember ( I thought) that on here soemehere there was info regarding a new Mexican restaurant opening up near Gasworks Park. Can someone provide an address or update please?July 26, 2017 at 9:40 am #57521
Marie is going to get you “soemehere” 😀July 26, 2017 at 10:55 am #57522
It hasn’t opened yet.July 26, 2017 at 11:33 am #57526
Marie gets to win everything. I have wasted enough energy feeling piqued by her needless useless trolling. Maybe I will become a better typist.July 26, 2017 at 6:55 pm #57533
I tried wallyburger yesterday. I have a question for the owners – is the ground beef or chicken previously frozen? Or fresh all the way through the chain?July 30, 2017 at 8:50 am #57557
It’s one of the Heavy Restaurant groups’ operations (the also run Thackeray and several others), going into the west end of the new building on 34th & Densmore (used to be the tank farm) that Tableau has rented all or most of.
They told me they can only work at night because of the worker-bees upstairs; should be opening soon.July 30, 2017 at 5:37 pm #57559
R U going to the Wallyhood meetuo john98103 or frankie?July 31, 2017 at 7:05 pm #57560
The new Mexican restaurant (Pablo & Pablo or something like it) – is open; at least a soft opening.
I’m going to wander down in a bit and check it out.August 1, 2017 at 11:17 am #57572
Were is the new MX place?August 1, 2017 at 12:46 pm #57573August 1, 2017 at 1:03 pm #57575
Do you mean ‘where’ is it?
34th between Densmore and Woodlawn. Pretty hard to miss.August 13, 2017 at 5:11 pm #57673
So we had dinner and drinks there on Thursday evening. It’s right opposite Essential Bakery if you need a bearing. That entire neighborhood is so remarkably, amazingly improved that I feel proxy joy for the folks who lived there and woke up one morning to find that the starkest corner of Wallingford was now one of the most desirable. My god the new Transfer Station is an amazing example of urban design.
Anyway, Pablo Y Pablo:
We ate a wide range of stuff, from a chopped salad to the Banh Mi taco. Everything was excellent. The Jalapeño-corn croquette taco was also surprising and delicious. There’s a lot of traditional among the vegan and fusion, and it’s all executed with delicious ingredients. My tortilla soup was a standout version of the classic, with big chunks of avocado and roasted chicken floating in the dark red Mayan brew – not the banal chicken stock you sometimes find.
Our drinks were good – I had a “modern Paloma” – the non-modern version is usually tequila with grapefruit soda – this was mezcal and a bright, home made soda combo whose exact ingredients escape me for the moment, and the house margarita is a fine standard too.
Service was exceptional. We sat outside on the patio watching Wallingford slowly ambulate past us, with a crazy smoke-enhanced sunset for atmosphere.
This is a proper sit down dinner spot, but the outdoor seating lends an air of casualness that made it feel at least child-accepting, if not “friendly” in the way that Tuta Bella is, and I ain’t even mad, because this will be a better spot for date night than that Pizza-fueled daycare place.
You can tell it’s by the Barrio folks, but it’s absolutely not a clone. This place has its own vibe, menu and feel and to me it’s the best new Wallyhood restuarant since Miyabi, and I think it’s going to have a wider appeal and longer legs.August 13, 2017 at 7:48 pm #57680
Menu online says their paloma has lime, Campari and guava Jarritos. I don’t see “paloma” in that, but whatever. I’d rather have the mescal on its own anyway, and I see they list about three dozen different options there.
For average plate price $22, do they fill you up, or is it like Manolin where you pay big bucks for a very nice snack?August 13, 2017 at 9:02 pm #57691
I’m a great big verbally enhanced pig tbh – and three varied tacos at about $5 each would have swelled my ballast to a bilious bursting Ballard ballonery bloat. Not cheap but par for the course in 2017 seattle.August 23, 2017 at 10:59 am #57760
Thank you for the good reviews and comments. We went once, loved it, food was excellent.
