The new South Lake Union Cactus is officially open and it’s very deserving of your attention. Located next door to Tom Douglas’ Cuoco and Brave Horse Tavern on the corner of Terry and Harrison, it’s ideal for Amazon employees and those enjoying the newly revamped area as much as I am.
This is the 4th Cactus to open and overall a breath of fresh air with the decor mixing new with mid-century. It stands out from the previous 3 locations decor wise but the food remains the same and is still outstanding! Another exciting detail is that come summer time, there will be ample outdoor seating which we all know is hard to find in Seattle.
Favorites dishes of mine include: Navajo Fry Bread (amazing!!!), Spiced Caesar, Sonoran Spa Chicken, Chimayo Enchiladas, Pescado Tacos, and then the Flan for dessert…it’s the best I’ve ever had!
One of the specials that night – Negro Modelo Braised Short Rib Tacos with house-made corn tortillas, smoked Oaxacan and cotija cheeses, and sour red cabbage…delicious! These should be on the permanent menu:)
