Fuji Bakery:

This unmarked, low-key family-owned restaurant is known for its excellent takes on various Japanese comfort food, including ramen, katsu curry, and tempura dishes.

515 S Main St Seattle, WA 98104 (206) 467-4004



This bakery combines ingredients and techniques from Japan and France to create wonders like the yuzu bacon epi. From savory breads and pastries, such as kare-pan (curry bun) and brioche saumon (salmon brioche), to sweets, like anpan, green tea Danish, year-round panettone, and best-selling crunchy cream doughnut, there’s no wrong occasion to stop in for a bite.

2834, 526 S King St Seattle, WA 98104 (206) 623-4050


Seattle’s oldest sushi bar has been open since 1904, but remains as resilient as ever. In a sign of the times, the restaurant is offering online takeout orders for the first time on its large menu of sushi rolls, udon, and sukiyaki dishes. And though it’s a shame that the intimate dine-in experience is temporarily not an option, Maneki in any form is a treat.

The Shambles

Maple Leaf’s restaurant/butcher shop/bar hybrid is one of the more underrated gems in the city. During the pandemic, it has shifted heavily to retail with its high-quality meat selections, available in “butcher boxes” that are locally sourced. There are rabbits from Spokane, ducks from Grays Harbor County, and steaks a-plenty, but the prepared food also holds up well for takeout, and there are potent, well-crafted cocktails to go.
