Open for takeout, outdoor seating
The first time I left the house in 2021, I went to Spice Bridge, the food hall and community kitchen in Tukwila. It’s part of Seattle’s Food Innovation Network, a food incubator created to give South King County women of color and immigrants the necessary support to start a business. I’m not gonna make the corny joke that the crispy sambusas from Moyo Kitchen or rich beef stew and fermented cassava root from Taste of Congo are “the best things I ate this year.” Even though that would be true. What I will say, though, is that I can’t remember ever being as excited about a food hall as I am with this place. Spice Bridge’s vendor schedule is on a rotating basis, with only three or four restaurants operating each day, and if you want a full rundown of the food hall, check out our guide with all of the spots you’ll find in the market. You should also know that the noumm ka ri from Theary Cambodian Foods (pictured above) is incredibly delicious, and has inspired me to eat more pastries covered in chile oil this year.
