Injecting a healthy dose of aloha into South Lake Union is Marination, which officially opens its doors Monday, December 28 at 11 a.m. Located in the new Amazon building at 2000 Sixth Avenue, this third iteration of Marination will be serving up its Hawaiian and Korean-style curb cuisine featuring both classic and new dishes as Eater outlined back in November.
Yes, expect Marination mainstays such as kimchi fried rice, spam sliders, and spicy pork tacos. But the new, expanded menu touts a Korean cheesesteak with kalbi beef, grilled onions, and melted cheese on Macrina-made bread, a pork katsu sandwich, and spicy pork torta with Marination nunya sauce, signature slaw, and housemade pickled peppers. Plus, not just one but two different kinds of tater tots.
To wash it all down, Marination will have four rotating taps which are currently dispensing brews from Stoup, Bale Breaker, Good Life, and Silver City Brewery. Owner Kamala Saxton says the menu will expand further to include grab-and-go salads, additional sandwiches, and noodles in the coming weeks. Hours are Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
