Seattle: Last Weekend for Plate of Nations!

Plate of Nations flew by so quickly this year! It's the last weekend to partake in the MLK Business Association's signature neighborhood event, where you can dine at some of the best restaurants in the south end.

MLK Jr. Way South is home to some of Seattle’s best independently-owned ethnic eateries. Hankering for some Ethiopian Derek Yebeg Tibs, Mexico City style Tacos Veracruz, Lao Papaya Salad, or Vietnamese Claypot? MLK has it all.

For two weeks every spring, Plate of Nations inspires foodies and urban adventurers to sample $15 and $25 sharable authentic international menus offered by restaurants in the heart of the Rainier Valley – one of the most ethnically diverse communities in the country.

Plate of Nations was designed to collectively promote independently-owned restaurants in the MLK community. Immigrants from around the world have settled in the Rainier Valley and started businesses including restaurants that provide cultural favorites for ethnic communities looking for a taste of home. 

More details on menus and restaurants over at the Plate of Nations site. We're definitely hitting at least one of these restaurants before the weekend is over - hope to see you there!
