There’s no shortage of great Filipino food in the Seattle region, and it’s a scene that has developed in scope over the years. The chefs and owners who serve up their own takes on classics, like chicken adobo or sinigang, also have a strong sense of community, showing support for one another in exploring the cuisine’s roots in their own creative ways. From ube cheesecakes to fine dining takes, here are some of the best Filipino restaurants around the area, listed from north to south.

Though all the restaurants on the list offer some takeout options, a handful have resumed limited dine-in service as well. The level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the King County’s COVID update page. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.

All immensely satisfying and good on the go.
