The owners of Capitol Hill’s Fogón Cocina Mexicana were born in Mexico, the restaurant is staffed with family and friends, and the service is friendly and considerate. The familiar Michoacán-style food tastes extra fresh and extra good. The house-made corn tortillas are amazing: cushy, pillowy, maybe ready to levitate. Chips and a trio of salsas cost extra and are completely worth it. The chile relleno, stuffed with queso fresco, is particularly great.
