Updated: 9 February 2017
Burien, a charming suburb of Seattle, has a vibrant culture and nightlife. Due to its location, the city has a surfeit of seafood restaurants and a variety of cuisine. Here is a list of some of the best restaurants to try out when in town.

The Greek House

Restaurant, Mediterranean, Greek, $$$

Loukoumathes

Arguably the best Greek restaurant in Burien, if not the entire Seattle area. The Greek House is usually packed for lunch, and dinner too sees a significant crowd come in. The servings are generous and you’ll love the taste. Staff is attentive and don’t be surprised if the owner and chef Phillip drop by the table to check if everything’s going well. The loukoumathes (Greek doughnuts) are fantastic, as is the kotopoulo riganato, a roasted chicken preparation in lemon and oregano jus, accompanied by roasted greens and potatoes. The Greek House Hero Gyro is their signature dish, and if it’s your first visit, this is something you just cannot miss!

If you’ve been to Australia, you’ll be familiar with the concept of meat pies for meals. If not, this place is a wonderful discovery. The place is small and serves meat pies and sausage rolls fresh and hot, or even frozen for take-out. Many people opt for the latter, as these can be taken to lunch at work or even served at parties and gatherings. The larger nine-inch meat pies are meant for two people, though you might end up ordering three between two, they’re that good.

Marinated Pork Tacos

While Mexican joints are a pretty familiar sight across the continental USA, the taste and quality of the food here often blows visitors away. Taqueria La Estacion is clean and cozy and the variety of food on offer is amazing. Try everything from the lengua (tongue) to the asada (beef), or go for the more classic lamb and chicken options if you don’t like to experiment. Fresh, tasty and amazingly priced, the place is a favorite for lunch. Oh, and the tacos are top-notch.

Bistro Baffi is considered by many to be the single best restaurant in Burien, if not the entire Seattle area, for Italian food. The risotto with lamb or lobster is amazing, as are the stuffed mushrooms and the pasta. Just about every dish is perfect, with fresh ingredients from Pike’s Market bringing up the game. A little off the beaten path, it’s also quiet and loaded with an uber friendly local crowd.

If you’re looking for a quick meal to warm you up without too much hassle, teriyaki is a great option. Buxx Teriyaki is probably the best teriyaki restaurant in the area, and you get great options with both vegetarian and meat and seafood. The yakisoba is their calling card, and is a must have, as is their fried rice. Lunchtimes are very busy, and it helps if you call about 10 minutes in advance with your order.

Mediterranean food is always a favorite, and Marlaina’s does it amazingly well. Enjoy the great ambience and the opportunity to taste some amazing food here. The menu is not massive but each dish is prepared with care and tastes great. The rich and spicy flavors of the Mediterranean are brought out very nicely and the range of wines complements the food very well. There are also some great vegetarian options and the stews and kebabs will satiate your hunger pangs thoroughly.
