Great ethnic cuisine

One person's "ethnic" food is another's home-cooking. Small cafes throughout Greater Seattle expand the globe. These places lean more toward funky than fancy and sometimes there's a language barrier. But those attributes are among the many riches found along the way: delicious, "exotic" and inexpensive meals that may cost less than $10 per person. Below is a list of the must-try places.

2715 E. Cherry St.
Seattle, WA 98122-4928

23830 Highway 99
Suite 114
Edmonds, WA 98026-9279

12332 Lake City Way N.E.
Seattle, WA 98125-5402

15005 N.E. 24th St.
Redmond, WA 98052-5531

3621 33rd Ave. S.
Suites C5 and C6
Seattle, WA 98144


Modest yet stylish corner storefront, where the air is heavily scented with cumin and cardamom. Carnivores show up for grilled marinated meats over basmati rice. Neighborhood vegetarians hanker for eggplant borani and delicate, ravioli-like ashak.

2301 N. 45th St.
Seattle, WA 98103

6324 Sixth Ave. S.
Seattle, WA 98108-3436

Panos Kleftiko Taverna

This extraordinary taverna is so Old World, so vigorously ethnic, it seems not quite of Seattle. Maybe it's the terra-cotta and the garlic strings; the Greek music and Hellenic wine list; the solidly Greek menu listing more than two dozen mezes (hors d'oeuvre spreads) along with traditional lamb, pork, chicken and prawn preparations. Or maybe it's the dozens of others relishing the place alongside you.

815 Fifth Ave. N.
Seattle, WA 98109
