El Chupacabra Restaurant Review: Drawing on the mythical inspiration of the Chupacabra---a blood sucking, bear-like creature---El Chupacabra’s décor is themed around Mexico's Day of the Dead. Skulls hang from the walls, red lanterns light the tables, and a skeleton swings its arm from the top of the bar. For more serene horizons on sunny days, the patio offers views of Puget Sound. Though this is more of a bar than a restaurant, the menu offers something for every taste and won’t break the bank. Vegetarians and vegans will enjoy “mock” chicken and steak, while meat lovers can select from chicken, beef, pork or shrimp. Tacos are a menu favorite, particularly the shrimp sautéed with tequila, lime, garlic and chipotle peppers. Take-out dishes are also available, which isn’t a bad option if you want to eat barefoot on the nearby beach. The original Chupacabra is located at 6711 Greenwood Ave. N. in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood.
