Traveling through food

Your long-haul travel plans may be shelved for the foreseeable future, but that doesn’t mean you can’t transport your family with a night out at an exotic destination — via a delicious meal, of course! A sampling of global cuisines is a fun and easily accessible gateway to learning about unfamiliar countries, and we in the Puget Sound region are fortunate to be surrounded by an astounding diversity of cultures and ethnicities that have made their imprint on our colorful food scene.

Local eateries are rebounding, with safer dining rooms and creative options for takeout and delivery. (And let’s face it, those options are appreciated by those of us still in the food-throwing stages of child-rearing, pandemic or not.) Others are offering cool at-home experiences, from meal kits to online cooking lessons — the perfect hands-on supplement to all that remote schooling. So, buckle your seatbelts and prepare for takeoff to these nine local destinations for global eats.
