WEEKEND SCENE: 31 food/drink options at 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:

The participants are all flying red balloons:

The Taste of White Center (which includes 4 South Delridge participants) is on until 4 pm, but take note that some venues are starting late – for example, Tomo, at left above, 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 simply “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.

    Be careful. The scoops at Full Tilt were very generous. So glad we went. Tried new restaurants.

    This was an amazing event and I hope it becomes an every year thing.  I got to try a bunch of new places and am excited to go back for more at all of them!  I hope all the participants had fun, and sign up to do it again next year.

    The Good Day Donuts “Surprise” was a little bag of donuts. We got to try a great variety of them. So tasty, we’ll be back!!   Roll Pod, Can Bar, Mexicuban & Full Tilt also had incredibly good food; we’ll be back to all of them.  There was a huge line at Puffy Pandy.  Need to get back there to see what the excitement was about.  Great event !!!

    The egg rolls at Dalat Quan were delicious!  Will definitely be back to taste from the full menu. The Hawaiian shaved ice from Patrick’s Cafe and Bakery was so refreshing. Really hit the spot as the sun heated up the day. Plan to bring the grandkids there soon. Looking forward to trying other restaurants from the list in the future.

    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.

Sorry, comment time is over.
