We could get bored with activities or places, but have you ever heard of someone getting bored with food? Because that just doesn't happen. If you were contemplating the ever-existential question of "Where should I eat next?," Yelp dished out. Here are the top eats in Washington in 2020.
Yelp ranks everything from “fancy-schmancy spots and white tablecloth restaurants” to “hidden gems and off-the-beaten-path joints and food trucks" every year in its Top 100 Places to Eat in the U.S. list.
While none of Evergreen State's eateries made the list last year, this year — nah, decade, is a whole different story. From sushi to tamales and burgers, these are the top spots you need to hit in Washington if you're a foodie.
New Mexico Tamale Co
Cuisine: New Mexican
Address: 5687 3rd Ave, Ferndale, WA
Why You Need To Go: This spot has a menu dedicated exclusively for tamales! You can expect gluten-free, authentic hand-rolled goodies that are dished out in small batches. Our suggestion? Go for the extra chile and queso.
Taneda Sushi in Kaiseki
Address: 219 Broadway E, Ste 14, Capitol Hill, Seattle, WA
Why You Need To Go: If you manage to snag a reservation here, expect a 5-star treatment with delightful kaiseki aka a traditional multi-course Japanese dinner that the chef hand-picks for you based on the season. Sipping sake is mandatory, of course.
The Box & Burgers Eatery
Address: Totem Hill Plaza, 12305 120th Ave NE, Ste C, Kirkland, WA
