It’s difficult to talk about Seattle food without including all the Hawaiian influences, from the rise of poke to the excellent fusion of Korean flavors in places such as the Marination chainlet. During the warm summer months especially, many may crave some comfort food from the islands, whether that’s a perfectly salty Spam musubi for takeout or a dish of kalua pork delivered to one’s door. Here are just a few restaurants around the city that continue to serve up dishes with aloha in abundance. Since services shift often now, it’s best to call ahead to confirm hours — and if you see any changes, or if there’s a spot you’d like to see on the list, send us a tip.
