Paseo Caribbean Food
4225 Fremont Ave N (btwn N 42nd & 43rd St)
Seattle, WA 98103
A cash-only counter-serve in Fremont, Paseo has garnered a mass following thanks to authentic Caribbean food that's as vibrant as the salmon-and-teal shack itself. There are plenty of sandwiches and platters of roast chicken, grilled pork, and seared scallops to choose from, but without question, the thing to order is the Caribbean Roast, a tender sandwich overflowing with slow-roasted pork shoulder coated in a garlicky aioli and topped with cilantro, pickled jalapeños, and caramelized onions. The lightly toasted baguette soaks up only so much of all the rich juices, so prepare to get a little messy. There aren't many tables, so eat quickly and relinquish your seat to the next crazed customer.
