La Costa in Burien

So my wife and I have been on a search for a new Mexican restaurant in our neighborhood since the one we frequented closed several months ago. We have gone to several and some have been good for certain items, but not for others. Well on New Years some friend told us about La Costa in Burien and Monday night we went.

La Costa has been around for some time, they opened in 1984, but its hidden away in Burien and it is amazing. Both my wife and I ordered the El Patron. It comes with Carne Asada, Chili Relleno, Enchilada, and a Taquito as well as pico de gallo and rice and beans with cheese. It was perfect.

The Carne Asada was grilled just right and not over spiced. I could still taste the flavorful meat, while it had a little heat to it. The Chili Relleno, a favorite of my wife, was not over breaded and had the most amazing cheese mix inside. The Enchilada was better than ElGallito, which has previously held the award for my favorite Enchilada. The Taquito was crisp and filled with shredded beef that melted in my mouth. The El Patron was too big for either of us to finish, but it gave us a great into to our new Favorite Mexican dining experience.

If you live in West Seattle/South Seattle/Burien area do yourself a favor and check out La Costa. Believe me you'll love it.
