I found a website for a Puerto Rican restaurant in Seattle called La Isla.

Has anyone been there?

I've passed by it a few times (it's in the Ballard neighborhood), but I've never been in. It looks popular from the crowds and I've heard good things, so I'll have to try it sometime.

I wish that I would have known about Ministry of Rum while living in Seattle. It seemed to be a challenge sometimes to find a wide-selection of rum in Seattle; although, I remember there being a caribbean restaurant in Belltown that had a wonderful selection of rum! Does anyone know if it is still there? I believe that it was two to three blocks from Cyclops.

Casuelita's Caribbean?

It has 50 kinds of rum. I'll have to check it out.

Sadly the review of Casuelita's was less than sterling. But maybe worth a try to find the rum.

For rum in town to take home, the following three Wa State liquor stores seem the best stocked. Not in order of my preference:

1. Fourth Ave Store, one block south of Safeco Field.
2. First Avenue North store at the foot of Queen Anne hill. One block north of Key Arena.
3. The 15th Avenue store on Crown Heights, just south of the 85th St.

Between these three stores you can, depending on your good fortune, and the moon phase find a reasonable selection of many of the better rums that Washington State carries. I have located Angostura 1824, Pampero, Barbencourt 8&15, Cruzan Single Barrel, Pusser's Navy, Coruba, Cockspur 12, Pyrat cask and XO, Appleton Estate 12, Mateusalem GR, Sea Wynde, and a number of other well regarded rums at these stores. They always have Barrilito 3 star, but forget buying it. It's 50 dollars a bottle, so out of the question to me. Of course, you have to buy premium rums when you see them in this state. Otherwise, you risk a long wait to see them again.

Casualita's was the place I went with the great rum selection. Not a very flattering review - - I had remembered the food being better, but I also remember that my wife and I tried the food after trying the "rum sampler" platter with about 7 different types of rum + 2 cocktails!

Probably the best reason I remember Casualita's well is that we stumbled upon the bar/restaurant completely by accident. We were also visited that afternoon/evening by the Seafair Pirates. As recent transplants from Chicago at the time, it was our first Seafair.

Good memories.

I work about a block and a half from Elliot's and the bartender told me that they'll do tastings that aren't listed as flights on the menu and that they actually have a number of rums in the back that were left behind from various events/parties and aren't part of their regular selection.

This sounds like a place I'm going to have to find on my next trip to Seattle.

It's right on the water downtown. If you're going, let me know. I'll take an extended dinner break from work .

I go to the Queen Anne store because it's nearest to where I live, but my favorite is the one in University Village. I can find Luxardo Maraschino, Napoleon Mandarine and other unusual liqueurs there.

I'm going to try to go to Casuelita's to check it out this weekend, if I can make it.
