Marrying modern Filipino cuisine, ingredients harvested around Seattle, WA, and Spanish cooking styles, Lahi Seattle is here with a bounty of full-bodied fare you won’t find at any other establishment. The name is a nod to the Tagalog word, which roughly translates to lineage or ancestry. This is an appropriate designation given the owner’s eagerness to share their heritage with folks throughout the Emerald City.
The menu sports appetizers, main courses, and desserts all popping with an unmatched bold flavor perfect for avid eaters looking to embrace Seattle’s culinary diversity. You can start off with a crispy lumpia stuffed with butterflied shrimp. Then, sample some traditional dishes for your entree. Grab some saba adobo and enjoy some sharply tangy adobo pulled pork wrapped up in a banana leaf, for example, or braised oxtail dripping with juice and served in oyster sauce. Don’t forget dessert. Jackfruit ice cream anyone? If this sounds delicious to you, either find Lahi Seattle in the streets or have ‘em out to cater your next event. Either way, you won’t regret giving this Filipino fare a try.
