Delicious street party for Taste of White Center

(A version of this story was also published on partner site West Seattle Blog)

It’s a street party in downtown White Center today, with 16th SW closed to vehicles between Roxbury and SW 100th for the Taste of White Center, benefiting the White Center Food Bank. 32 restaurants and bars are offering $5 “tastes” – some savory, some sweet, like the three cream puffs from Puffy Pandy:

Here’s how it works – find one of the WCFB booths along 16th, and buy $5 tickets, redeemable at the participants of your choice.

You’ll get the map/list with the locations/names of the participating restaurants and bars and what they’re offering. Some non-downtown WC businesses have set up booths on 16th so they can be part of it too, like Dubsea Coffee (strawberry lemonade):

The food spans a variety of cuisines – Mexican, Vietnamese, Chinese, Laotian, Salvadorean, American, and vegetarian/vegan options – Lotus Vegetarian Restaurant‘s booth (fried rice, Singapore noodles, egg roll) among them:

Almost all the venues are offering their tastes until 4 pm. A few have later starts – Tomo, offering strawberry/basil kakigori for dessert, is listed as “1 pm until sold out.” Participating venues we haven’t already mentioned are: Taqueria la Fondita, Best Roasted Corn, Que Chévere, Salvadorean Bakery, Rosticeria el Paisaano, Los Potrillos 4, Taqueria la Quebrada, El Catrin, Li’l Woody’s, Proletariat Pizza, Zeeks Pizza, Pho Thu Thuy, Sap Sap Lao Café, Bok a Bok, The Roll Pod, Lumberyard, Lariat Bar, Tim’s Tavern, Moonshot Coffee, Future Primitive, Full Tilt, Patrick’s Café and Bakery, Nacho Mama, Young’s, Meat the Live Butcher, Can Bar, and Mac’s Triangle Pub. Wherever you get your food, tents are set up at multiple spots with tables and chairs. A DJ’s spinning, too.

    We had a great time and found some good eats. No need to cook dinner last night. And the weather was perfect. Just make sure you get there on the early side next time it is held if you want to get the incredible desserts.
