Enchiladas Agua Verde

Once upon a time I did not yet live in Seattle but I came here for a visit.  I met an awesome friend named Justine who had a birthday and we went to a lovely place along the water in the University District known as Agua Verde.  It was the beginning of a tasty love affair.

Agua Verde is an authentic Baja style restaurant with a warm relaxed atmosphere, a plethora of tequila drinks, home made salsas and towers of tortilla chips.  They also only serve sustainable and eco-friendly raised meat and fish, organic produce and engage in composting and recycling behind the scenes. In short, they have tasty food and healthy and environmental business practices.

The night I met this restaurant is the same night as I met my now partner Lamar.  Tonight it was Valentine's Day and Lamar was part of a quartet of musicians playing the restaurant.  I stopped by to wave, say hi, enjoy some salsa and venture off my normal choices on the menu (house tacos)  and try the enchiladas.

I asked for the sour cream on the side – why "on the side" I don't know.  I don't eat it.  I can't eat it. It is as if I feel it is impolite to not take what they are offering even though it is wasteful.  I will work on saying "no sour cream" or "no cheese" or "no bread for the table, thank you" from now on.

These also have a little queso fresca on them.  I cheated and had a little bit of cheese – because I knew it was organic, small farm, fresh and small in quantity.

Here is the close up of the  enchiladas topped with a green sauce and filled with scrumptious flakey chicken.

If you are in the neighborhood Agua Verde worth the wait for a table.  And for those of you reading not in Seattle – its worth visiting when you come – you could find love or at least rent a kayak to explore some of Seattle at sea level.
