#1635b #S969b - Chino's, Seattle - 12/3/2011

Update: Chino's closed in late September 2012

Chino's calls itself an "Urban Tiki House & Taiwanese Cantina."  They offer Mexican and Taiwanese street foods, as served from old-style L.A. food trucks, along with tiki cocktails.  Whereas tiki drinks are generally terribly made sugary concoctions for drinkers who don't really like spirits, here they are a rotation of well-crafted classics from Verionika Groth (of Poppy and Oliver's Twist).  The foods items we sampled were very tasty and many not quite like anything I've seen anywhere else in the city.  “Most of the food we're doing can be found at the Taiwanese night markets,” says one of the owners.

 Chino's is a nice new alternative.
