WEEKEND SCENE: 31 ways to enjoy the Taste of White Center

The booth on the northwest corner of 16th/98th is one of three places you can buy $5 tickets for the Taste of White Center, benefiting the White Center Food Bank – each ticket gets you one of the special menu items that 31 establishments are offering – here’s the list:

Participants are all flying red balloons:

The Taste of White Center is on until 4 pm, but take note that some venues have slightly different participation hours – for example, Tomo has a sign saying it’ll open at 2 pm (it’s offering smoked sable fish congee), and Good Day Donuts is participating until 2 (their menu item is listed as “surprise”). The other two ticket booths are outside Mac’s Triangle Pub at 16th/Delridge/Roxbury and outside Patrick’s Café and Bakery at 15th/100th. Along with the $5 taste tickets, you also can buy tickets for a drawing that’s also benefiting WCFB – two round-trip Alaska Airlines tickets. Alaska is one of the sponsors whose support is enabling compensation for the venues so that all the ticket proceeds can benefit the food bank.

    WOW! What a treat the Taste of White Center was to our community. We got over there shortly after it started and had to wait in line at the WCFB ticket booth. As we walked we saw ticket holders everywhere. Of course, we tried out some of the food. As Sam-C commented on the WSB: “There was a huge line at Puffy Pandy”. Must have been 40 when we checked it out at 11:30. When we moved here many years ago from West Seattle we thought White Center was a place you drove through to go south on Ambaum. But that changed immediately as we discovered all the great tasting diverse food within walking distance. I grew up in a town where the “diverse” restaurant was Chinese and enjoyed it. We look forward to a yearly Taste of White Center to help more people discover our great community. Thank you Tracy and Patrick for the photos on your very busy day.

  2. Pretty bad job at promoting this. Never even saw a sign…

    Morning,Bill. As an old man I came out of the “sign era” of getting attention for events. However, I learned that didn’t work anymore. So, when “blogs” for local news became available I started checking them daily. At this point I depend on them to find out about local happenings. There were several that posted about the Taste of White Center but since I usually check WCN blog first this is where we found out about it.
