Mouth-watering pleasures await you in South Park! Let the music move you and the colors call you to Muy Macho Mexican restaurant.
Muy Macho has a well-deserved reputation for authentic Mexican cuisine. “I am so proud that people like my food,” says Judith Herrera. She’s owned Muy Macho since 2006, although the restaurant first opened in 2000. Judith is originally from Oaxaca, Mexico and came to the US 19 years ago to live with her sisters.

From the Ground Up
You may not know it yet, but you’re about to fall in love with the flavors of Guatemala right here in Seattle.
Like the Mayan Tikal Temple, Tikal Bakery is built stone by stone from the ground up. Erick and Mariluz Soto opened their traditional Guatemalan bakery in April 2010, and it’s the only one of its kind in Washington State. “At the beginning I had no capital,” Erick explains while he shapes some dough, “I’ve used earnings from the bakery to purchase each piece of equipment one at a time.” He learned to make traditional Guatemalan panes dulces (sweet...
If you’re the kind of dreamer who’s always thinking about the next big thing, then you’re in good company at Video Mar in South Park.
“Work hard, it’s the only way you can do it,” says Venus Vasquez, a self-described workaholic. “Maybe that’s why I’m still here, I’ve stayed and worked.” Venus and Luisa Vasquez moved to Seattle from Oaxaca, Mexico when their son Jose was just seven years old. “My cousin-in-law invited us,” recalls Venus, “he said, ‘it’s a nice place, come visit’.” Before the Vasquez family bought Video Mar in 1997,...

She came to the US 18 years ago from Morelos, Mexico and raised her family in the Seattle area. Her first job was as a prep cook at Juan Colorado in South Park. In 2005 she became the new owner of Video Morelos, which previously belonged to her cousin. She quickly...

Maria is the youngest of South Park’s pizza-dishing Porco family. Via Vadi got its start when Maria asked herself a crucial question, “How can I build a business with the least work and the most fun?” As a self-described chatterbox, Maria chooses to employ her talkative talents. “I’m an open book,” she says, “I share everything, even silly stories from my bad dates.” The coffee shop is an ideal match. “I started...
