Saturday Steals – El Chupacabra

There are few places in Seattle where you can walk through the sand while waves crash on your feet. But, that’s what makes Alki beach so special. Children run daringly into the cool water of Puget Sound and send up squeals of delight as they splash and play. Young lovers walk hand in hand and rowdy groups of volleyball players battle for who’s the king of the net. At night, bonfires lick the sky until the shore is speckled with warm flames and marshmallow roasting parties.

Along Alki Avenue, there are several excellent restaurants to choose from, but few offer patio seating. This is a shame. Haven’t you noticed food tastes better outside? Eating in the elements brings your taste buds to a whole new level – spicy salsa pops more in your mouth, cold beer is extra refreshing, and creamy avocado is as sexy as the view of fit men windsurfing on the Sound.

So, on a sunny day, when you need a mini-vacation close to home, I strongly recommend the patio seating at El Chupacabra. Getting a spot outside might be a wait, but as long as your stomach isn’t eating itself, it’s worth it.

Opened last April, this is owner Aaron Wright’s second location. (The other El Chupacabra is on Phinney Ridge.) With no menu item more than $10, you won’t break the bank.

As with most view restaurants, the sights outweigh the food. But, the view is pretty amazing at El Chupacabra and the food’s not bad either. Tacos are a favorite, available in a variety of meats and vegetarian options. Though all five meats were enjoyable, the shrimp was packed with a spicy, acid punch from the lime and chipotle marinade.

For a heartier option, I recommend one of the burritos – available with your choice of meats or veggies. All burritos come with whole beans and pico de gallo.

Seattle’s more diet restricted diners especially enjoy El Chupacabra for its vegan options. The mock chicken or mock steak enchiladas are said to be excellent, but as with all mock meat, it has the word “mock” in front of it for a reason.

Though drinks here aren’t exorbitantly expensive, they can add up. I strongly recommend their happy hour – daily, from 4 – 6 PM and 10 – 12 PM, $1.00 off well drinks and draft beers.

COST
Meat Tacos: $5.95 (Your choice of meat. *Mix and match meats for $1.00 more. Recommendation – Save the money and stick with the shrimp.)
Regular Burrito: Large – $7.95, Small – $6.95 (Comes with sour cream and avocados inside.)
Basic Burrito: Large – $6.95, Small – $5.95
Burrito Note – Top any burrito with El Chupacabra’s special enchilada sauce and melted cheese for $1.00.

What is a Chupacabra?
This legendary creature is named after its reported habit of attacking and drinking the blood of livestock, especially goats. Inhabiting parts of the Americas, its first sighting was in Puerto Rico, but sightings have also been reported in Mexico and the United States.

Physical descriptions of the creature vary, but it’s supposedly a heavy creature, the size of a small bear, with a row of spines reaching from the neck to the base of the tail.

  1. I live near the Phinney Ridge location and have always wondered about it. One of my vegan friends at work said she loves their Vegan menu. I’ll have to check it out!

  2. I love a good Alki staycation over the weekend! And I love El Chupacabra!!
