Manu’s serves excellent Cuban, Caribbean, and Dominican food in a super casual space accented by bright walls and coffee can utensil holders. We’ve heard that money can’t buy you happiness, but the Cuban dip sandwich (complete with a side of salty pork jus for dunking) makes us pretty f*cking happy, and we paid for that. Add a couple picadillo or yam/smoked gouda empanadas, which are made with yucca dough and served with a highly addictive olive oil chimichurri. We don’t blame you if you decide to not show up for work afterwards, or even just quit your job altogether.

Is getting in line for pasta at 10:30am on a weekday crazy? Maybe. But this is what you have to do at Il Corvo in Pioneer Square, and it’s worth it.
You know Paseo, but Un Bien is where you want to be. It’s where the old owners work now, and the Caribbean sandwiches in Ballard are the city’s best.
Damn the Weather
Damn The Weather is a bar, but one with excellent food. It's usually crowded, but worth the wait if you're looking for a hang in Pioneer Square.
