Quick lunch with my daughter: Aqua Verde

Go to place near UW Medical Center and well known to the UW crowd. It’s a small place on the water and is frequently crowded, especially for lunch. We went a bit late for lunch and there wasn’t a wait on this day but that doesn’t guarantee that will be the case on other days. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

They have solid Mexican food and their claim to fame are their chips and salsa: salsa verde, chipotle and diablito by the very large bowl full! This visit we had enchiladas mole and burritos carne.

Sit out back if you can for great water views and, if you have time, they rent kayaks and paddle boards for use on the lake. Suspect this is the only Mexican restaurant in the world that rents watercraft!
