Dining: Cochinito Taqueria
written by Cara Strickland | photos by Through Stories
Travis Dickinson and Justin Curtis met while working together at Spokane favorite Clover. Dickinson was the chef and Curtis ran the front of the house. When they teamed up to start their own chef-made taqueria in downtown Spokane, complete with housemade tortillas and a commitment to seasonal, local ingredients made at a fine-dining level, it was bound to be good. Dickinson drew on the food tradition he married into—his wife is originally from Sinaloa, Mexico. The results are sometimes surprisingly different, occasionally comfortingly familiar, but always worthwhile. Pair your tacos and appetizers with housemade sauces and salsas as well as thoughtfully curated beverages, including a fully stocked bar with a fresh, playful cocktail list. You can start small, but you’ll soon see why there’s a line just for people who want seconds.
