Vancouver, WA excellent new Mexican chow

We just had the pleasure of eating at a new and wonderful joint called Woody's Tacos on Columbia near 11th. Chef/owner Scott Holzinger headed up a number of kitchens in SF...such as Rose Pistola, Kuleto's, and others I'm forgetting now. At a Mexican dinner he cooked for friends (oh, MAN!!) prior to opening, he mentioned he's spent time in 28 of the 31 Mexican states. Clearly he has a passion for the culture and it does translate to the very fresh and delicious food. I believe as business builds he will offer more selections from the various regions of Mexico...for now I'd recommend local and visiting Hounds get in for what is likely the best Mex in the area. Excellent grilled prawn tacos, pork, green tomatillo salsa. And the price is right!

  1. This is great! Thanks for the new find - I think we passed by here the other day and mentioned we had to go in and now we will definitely have to try it out. We've been impressed with Provecho in downtown Vancouver, but it's always nice to have another option!
