Our friend John Lee is a bass player for the Seattle House Rockers and he had a gig while we were in town. Friday night we headed to Tim’s Tavern for a beer and some Blues music.
We went out to eat at a Central American restaurant that was next door to the tavern for dinner. It is called La Cabana and was very good. Once again I was too busy eating to remember to take a photo.
Bistec Encebollado (Nicaragua) $17.50
A traditional dish from Nicaragua made with a choice cut of beef and top it with a generous amount of caramelized onions, and tomatoes. Served with Gallo Pinto, freshly made tortillas and a green salad. This is what I had.
Salpicon (Honduras) $17.50
This traditional dish comes to you from Honduras. We start with a choice cut of beef, peeled knuckle, which is cooked in a special seasoning mix. We mince the meat and blend it with diced onions, cilantro and top it with fresh lime juice and diced radish. Served with rice, freshly made tortillas, and a green salad. David had this.
Huevos Rancheros $10.75
Over easy or hard (fried) eggs on a corn tortilla topped with a home-made spicy red salsa,bell peppers,and onions. Served with refried beans, queso fresco and crema. John Lee had this.
They make their tortillas and they are really good.
They have special non-alcoholic drinks.
Sweet rice water drink w/ a hint of cinnamon
(contains dairy) I had this drink and it was nice. It kind of reminded me of Thai Ice Tea.
A refreshing drink made from the fruit of the
palm tree, a small tart, yellow cherry-like fruit. David tried this one which we thought had a nice flavor but was a little too pulpy for David.
John Lee did it again and took us to a wonderful place to eat. If you are ever in the neighborhood you should give it a try.
Trouble at Home played first. One of the guys is actually in the Seattle House Rockers. They were good too.
The guy on the harmonica, John Marsh, also joined in with the House Rockers.
After they finished it was time for Seattle House Rockers.

We had a great time and the music was great too.
Thanks for stopping by.
