It was more like pulled pork rather than chicharrones and it had rice and beans and it was all stuffed between 2 corn tortillas. The sauce tasted like tomato sauce instead of salsa or chile. I am still feeling sick this evening from eating it and I ate at noon. I also waited 15-20 minutes for them to make it because it was made "from scratch". I don't know what Seattle calls chicharrones, but what I ate was NOT a chicharron gordita. Maybe I should have ordered the tamales instead. <p>I had the chicharron gordita and it was horrible!!

I'm Mexican and even though I was changing my eating habits that didn't mean I was ready to completely forgo my favorite foods. There had to be some place that had vegan options available. Enter Cafetal Quilombo to save the day! Cafetal Quilombo is in Beacon Hill next to a convenience store and a bike "church". The place is tiny, or should I say cozy? There is seating for maybe twenty or so people but this is also a cafe shop therefore is a great spot to sip a coffee, eat some food, and chill out. The employees have always been welcoming. The food menu isn't large but it is more than made up with flavor. There are tortas, tamales, rice and beans, typical Mexican staples. There are numerous tamales choices: chicken, beef, black bean, bean and cheese, and my favorite, vegetables. The vegetables is the vegan option and it chalkfull of roasted veggies spiced just right. I asked about what was used in the maza instead of lard and I was assured for the vegetable tamales they used only oil and water. I can tell you there are delicious! I can't vouch for anything else because I am so stuck on the tamales that I have yet to try anything else. I am happy I found Cafetal Quilombo so I don't have to give up tamales. <p>I was on a search for vegan tamales.

The giant development going in next door threatens to wring the charm right from this place. So get here while you can. Or don't. It might be better for everyone that way. The Tamales and Molotes were fantastic. The Ham Torta was more reminiscent of a classic Ham Sandwich than a traditional Torta. It was one of the best Ham Sandwiches I've had but it didn't quite meet my craving for a warm gooey torta. The coffee drinks here are fantastic and my horchata hit the spot. Some people were relaxing and getting work done here, giving the place a coffee shop vibe. So stop in, take a load off, and decide if a new condo is worth pushing a place like this out of the neighborhood. <p>Cafetal Quilombo is a hidden gem in the Beacon Hill area for now.

I walked into the Cafetal expecting just average Mexican food and some sub-par drinks, but instead I got extremely authentic and flavorful Mexican food with a cup of London Fog that was better than other grommet coffee shops that I frequent. I ordered the chicken tamale with black mole and a London Fog as I just mentioned. The tamale was piping hot when I received it, and it was just divine. The tamale was moist without being overly soggy and the authentic flavors were all right there along with the delectable flavor of the chicken and black mole. I really don't know how to describe the London Fog except by comparing it to drinking a delightful vanilla cloud (you could say it was Cloud 9 to be precise :). It had the right amount of sweetness without overdoing it and it was just so deliciously airy. Even though the food was good, the service is also great: they were very, very friendly and know how to make real good tamales and tea. Overall, I highly recommend this place! <p>I rarely give 5 stars: but this place really deserves it.

Really sweet students running the front counter and the coffee was EXCELLENT ! I ordered the latte canela  and it was Perfectly pulled espresso . The tamales were on point!  2.50 a pop , some of the best I've had here in Seattle . The masa was moist AND flavorful and the pork was tender . ( so good I forgot to take a pic ) They had a choice of beef, pork, chicken , bean/cheese , and veggie . My friends tried the beef and chicken and they also agreed that it was legit ! Other items I saw on the menu was tortas, quesadilla, and ceviche . I will def be a regular here! <p>Came here for the first time on a Sunday morning to order a coffee and tamales to go.
