Your RVP is proud to announce our newest advertiser – the second annual Plate of Nations event:
MLK Jr. Way South is home to some of Seattle’s best, independently owned ethnic eateries. Hankering for some Halal Asian curries, Southern soul briskets, or Somali goat shawarma? MLK has it.
Come taste the rich flavors these local restaurants offer at the second annual Plate of Nations event. From March 25 – April 7, Plate of Nations will draw food lovers and urban adventurers to sample the authentic international cuisines offered by some of the best restaurants in the heart of the Rainier Valley, one of the most ethnically diverse communities in the country.
During this two-week event, 10 MLK restaurants will offer special $15 and $25 group meal deals.

Plate of Nations offers a culinary tour of several continents. Khadija Moga, owner of Karama, talks about the blend of African, Indian, and Middle Eastern flavors in her dishes. She says wistfully, “One taste of my simmering goat stew will transport you to Somalia.”
Al Les, owner of Olympic Express, has for 20 years prepared Halal food from many cultural traditions – including Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Thai. His special plate this year will feature a customer favorite – Asian lamb curry.
Plate of Nations 2012 is sponsored by the MLK Business Association, City of Seattle’s Office of Economic Development, Vulcan, Chase, Rainier Valley Community Development Fund and HomeSight.
