La Carta de Oaxaca
People have been raving about the Ballard Avenue restaurant for years, and for good reason: The menu is made up completely of dishes from the state of Oaxaca, and universal favorites include the sweet mole negro (in a tamale or as a plate served with house-made tortillas), quesadillas fritas, halibut tacos and entomatadas (tortillas folded in warm salsa and topped with thin pieces of steak). Share a few dishes while sipping margaritas made from La Carta’s decent mezcal and tequila selection. Families often take up the communal table, with couples tucked in wherever they can get a seat, but be warned that weekend nights are nuts. Lunch Tue.–Sat., dinner Mon.–Sat.
