"Marination broke da mout, brah!"
That’s pidgin for,get your bootay over to Marination Ma’Kai on Alki & eat some bomb.com food.
…Like, right now. Seriously.
You may have already heard about Marination (they’re pretty big out on these streets), best known for their food truck (aka Big Blue) that travels around to different parts of Seattle, depending on the day. Being that I visit Hawaii often, am an Islander and love food - it is shocking that I haven’t visited the food truck, or their location on Cap Hill. Whenever the opportunity to eat there came up, something always ruined the plan. And then I heard they were opening shop smack dab in the middle of my hood - West Seattle. Nothing was going to stop me for finally tasting the hawaiian goodness that I’ve forever heard about.
And I can say with full confidence, nothing will ever stop me from going back. A couple times. Like… a couple times a week. Ok. Maybe twice a day. I mean, they serve breakfast (my favorite meal), lunch & dinner. Totally okay to go twice in a day. Don’t judge me.
I stopped by there yesterday and was greeted by friendly faces (one of whom I know - Shoutout to Brody working the register!) - and as much as I love food, I love good customer service too & Marination Ma Kai definitely has the full package deal.
I ordered Hawaiian Mac Salad & the Miso Ginger Chicken Taco Salad. *Currently trying not to drool.
Here’s a close up of that Mac Salad. Seriously people - heaven. And yeah, that’s Spam! LONG LIVE SPAM!
As you may know, I’m a born & raised & still living & will probably always live here West Seattleite … and this view is NEVER old to me. And quadruple points for Marination Ma Kai, because this is your view when you eat there.
And probably one of my favorite things about this place is, you’re not breaking the bank. They offer quality and flavorful food for a good deal.
Mahalo Marination for the yummy experience.. be prepared to have a regular :)
