5 Great Seattle Sandwiches to Know About


Seattle beckons to anyone in search of great seafood, Asian fare, breakfast, donuts, or coffee. In addition to those well-known assets, the Emerald City also is a treasure-trove of sensational sandwiches.  These are 5 of the best sandwiches in Seattle that everyone should try.

The itinerary includes one of the kaleidoscopic Caribbean inventions that have made Paseo a locals’ fave. If you’re homesick for a taste of New York, hoist an effulgent Tatstrami sandwich at Tat’s; if you’re really, really hungry, tuck into the succulent 9-ounce, bone-in pork chop on a ciabatta loaf at Pork Chop & Co; and for something completely different, visit Marination Ma Kai for a multicultural spicy pork torta or Thanh Son Tofu for a ridiculously inexpensive (and utterly delicious) banh mi.


Tat’s Delicatessen

Immense Philly cheese steaks, subs and hoagies, priced right, are Tat's glory. It's a casual Seattle restaurant with the hustle and sass of an East Coast deli.

Must Eats

Porkchop & Co.

Star of the diverse, modern, three-meal-a-day menu at this Seattle hot spot is pork, especially wonderful as Porkchop Deluxxe and as Pork Belly Hash.


Paseo Caribbean Restaurant

A raffish sandwich shop specializing in overstuffed torpedoes of pork and more, Paseo is bright and delicious, noisy and fun. The Paseo Press, a version of the traditional Cuban sandwich, is sensational.


Marination Ma Kai

Fusion cuisine, Pacific Northwest style. A goofy but terrific menu of Hawaiian, Korean and Asian foods. Think kim chee galore and Spam.


Thanh Son Tofu

A Seattle International District treasure, Thanh Son Tofu bakes its own bread for magnificent banh mi sandwiches at criminally low prices.
