Plate of Nations is your two-week-long chance to explore the many cuisines and cultures of the Rainier Valley. Until April 9, 11 independently owned eateries serving Ethiopian, Eritrean, Laotian, Middle Eastern, Somali, Thai, or Vietnamese (or, in the case of Olympic Express restaurant, a wondrous halal mash-up of all nearly all of these things) food are offering shareable plates, specially priced at $15 and $25. If you’ve never been to Cafe Ibex, Huarachitos, or Rainier BBQ, you’re missing out on some of the best food in town. South Seattle is where it’s at. Catch up.
