Restaurants can’t pay to show up on this list, so you can trust what you see and enjoy Seattle’s hidden gems. We don’t recommend restaurants lightly, these 10 are really something special.

Drink pairing tips

  • The perfect complement to falafel

    When having falafel, experts suggest you pair it with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, a popular white wine.

  • Pair Rosé with falafel

    When considering how to best enjoy your falafel, we would highlight how well a glass of Rosé complements the dish as it counterbalances the dense texture of the falafel.

  • Chardonnay with your falafel

    A falafel can be tricky to find a white wine pairing for. We would suggest trying Chardonnay. It will pair nicely with the food and complete the meal thanks to its oaked.
