Sample tastes from local restaurants all while supporting a local cause at the South Sound Bites, June 22 – 24 at Emerald Queen Casino’s Taste of Tacoma.
Located at the end of Restaurant Row at The Taste, South Sound Bites will deliver five different tastes from local restaurants from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. each day of the festival, for just $17.
South Sound Bites will showcase premier Tacoma-area restaurants including, Duke’s Seafood & Chowder, Stanley & Seafort’s, The Table Tacoma, Miyabi Tacoma, Hello Cupcake, ChUch, Steamer’s Seafood Café, Bruno’s European Restaurant, Pasteles Finos Del Angel, and Hob Nob Tacoma. After purchasing a ticket, guests will receive their plates and utensils and collect five ‘large tastes’ of food, one from each of the different restaurants.
Some of the ‘tastes’ include succulent Manilla Clams in butter sauce, summery Pina Colada cupcakes, fresh Gazpacho, sweet Mexican Tres Leches cake, traditional European pan-fried meatballs – Frikadelle, farm-raised Chicken Terrine with almonds and strawberries.
South Sound Bites will not only serve as a platform for local restaurants to showcase their cuisine, but will also be supporting the Emergency Food Network. Donations, both monetary and non-perishable food items, will be collected on site for the nonprofit, which provides 16 million pounds of food annually to 70 food banks.
