A&A Cafe and Organic Tamaleria Cider House
Capitol Hill has a new spot for tamales: Everett’s A & A Cafe Organic Tamaleria has opened a location in the former space of the recently closed poke joint Aloha Cup Bap on Broadway. The family-run, family-friendly spot uses tamale recipes handed down by co-owner Ali Carbajal’s great-great-grandmother, who grew up in Mexico City, and the Everett spot is known to sell out daily. Eventually, the restaurant will serve cider from Everett-based Soundbite Cider alongside the handcrafted, husk-wrapped delights.
