    What's the secret to French toast? Who are Seckel pears named after? What the hell's a highball, anyway? You have questions about food and/or beverages; Hungry & Thirsty continue to be at your service. Write to hungry&thirsty@seattleweekly.com or c/o Seattle Weekly, 1008 Western Ave., Ste. 300, Seattle, WA 98104. Estimados amigos, You guys rock! Your Spanish is impeccable [see Hungry & Thirsty, Jan. 10]. Now that I've been schooled on the acceptable spellings (thank you), please enlighten a homesick-for-the-food California girl as to where she might find some of the tasty stuff here in Seattle. And while you're at it, you may as well enlighten your gentle readership as to its nature, as by now those who don't know are probably curious. Gracias, Stephanie Diaz Hungry replies: Thank you for your high praise! We took a little Spanish in high school. You, Ms. Diaz, are to be complimented on the timeliness of your inquiry, for within this very issue dwells an article by our own fantastic Erica C. Barnett about where to get decent salsa [see p. 24], and, by the associative property, "the tasty stuff" in general. I would in particular direct your attention to her mention of El Puerco Lloron (Pike Place Hillclimb at 1501 Western, 624-0541), which is delicious plus one gets to push one's tray along the counter. La Vaca at First and Pike (1429 First, 467-9262; other locations at 613 Third and 4129 University Way N.E.) is just a window, and it is especially satisfying to have good food thrust at you through a window. For a fancier Mexican meal, try Galleria's (moving from its current spot on Broadway down the street to the former Minnie's location, perhaps at this very instant; Thirsty heard a rumor that they wanted civilians to help them move and presumably would feed you for your effort, but we've been unable to get details as of yet); their chiles en nogada and mole will make our gentle readers weep. Thirsty replies: For the muy tasty stuff, visit the little cock: El Gallito (1700 20th E. at Madison, 329-8088)! Margaritas! Guacamole! Chile Colorado! Drink and eat these there! Plus mole enchilada, they will make it for you if you ask nicely! Also Tacos Guaymas (many locations! Look in the phone book!)! Not as divey as you want your taqueria to be, but they will slip you the lengua! Yum! You are nice, Stephanie! Gracias yourself! hungry&thirsty@seattleweekly.com
