It’s time for a vacation. But you just spent all your money on almond butter at Whole Foods, so a tropical getaway is probably not in your near future. Make moves to Rumba, which is the next best thing - perfect for getting slightly drunk with your friends over tropical small plates. Grab a booth amidst the bookcases full of island tchotchkes, order some classic tiki rum punches along with a round of empanadas and fish tacos. Also, we miss their yucca fries regularly.

You know Paseo, but Un Bien is where you want to be. It’s where the old owners work now, and the Caribbean sandwiches in Ballard are the city’s best.
Hotel Albatross in Ballard is the ultimate birthday spot - the kind of place that serves drinks out of fruit. The Mexican-Asian fusion is good too.
