Out of this year’s James Beard Award nominees from Seattle, two chefs — Melissa Miranda of Musang and Aaron Verzosa of Archipelago — were Filipino American. Even before the nominations, these chefs were getting national praise for their food and their work in promoting Filipino Americans’ contributions to the Pacific Northwest, a region where Filipinos have been instrumental to industries like agriculture since the early 1900s. But there has been some Filipino food in the area for years, including Pike Place Market’s Oriental Mart, which won a James Beard Classics award in 2020. And in the past several months, the scene has gotten even stronger with the Chicken Supply, a restaurant serving shatteringly crisp Filipino chicken in Greenwood, and Bunsoy, a nostalgic restaurant serving whole Dungeness crab with balaw sauce in Ballard.

Filipino and Filipino American chefs and owners in the Pacific Northwest also have a strong sense of community, showing support for one another in exploring the cuisine’s roots in their own creative ways. From intricate 10-course tasting menus to casual counter-service spots, here are some of the best Filipino restaurants around the area.

After almost 20 years of working in Seattle-area restaurants, Chef Rhabbie Coquia is finally cooking the dishes he grew up eating in Manila at his new Ballard restaurant. Inside Bunsoy, diners sip cocktails with Southeast Asian flavors like calamansi, pandan, ube, tamarind, and various tropical fruits at a long bar surrounded by palms in pots or snack on appetizers like pork lumpia, musubi made with house-made spam, and isaw (Filipino grilled meat on sticks). Entrees include brisket bulalo (stew), lechon porchetta with pork liver sauce, and a duck confit adobo, a dish which shows off Coquia’s French culinary training. Half or whole Dungeness crabs — sourced locally along with most of the other ingredients used in the restaurant — are served with a balaw sauce (fermented shrimp and coconut butter) and strewn with fresh herbs.

3. The Chicken Supply

The Chicken Supply is the Filipino fried chicken restaurant of chef Paolo Campbell’s dreams, the business he always wanted to own during his many years working in Seattle’s fine-dining restaurants. The gluten-free-soy-marinated chicken here — wings, drumsticks, thighs, or 10-inch long cylinders of breast meat on sticks — crackles under the teeth with the puffy-crisp texture of Rice Krispies. And the tangy Filipino sides, like the soy-marinated vegetables and a cold pancit dish with seared cabbage and pickled celery, are made with twists, reflecting Campbell’s background: born in the Philippines but nurtured by the fine-dining kitchens of the Pacific Northwest.
