Seattle’s POC Guide to Good Eats

The wonderful folks at Equity Matters put together a much needed open source map of POC-owned restaurants within Seattle city limits. With this resource, it’s now much easier to move money toward a POC economy, one bite at a time.

And for those who need a little bit of guidance navigating this wonderfully jam packed map (options for days!) scroll down for our updated recommendations. Similar to our original map the recommendations are completely subjective–based on places we’ve personally dined at and love.

Happy eating ya’ll!

      Hi Martha!
      Since this is an open-source map anyone can add a location. Simply open the map in Google Maps and drop a pin/search for “Fonda La Catrina” and add it to the map. Regarding my list of recommendations–I acknowledge that it is limited as these are just a list of places at which I’ve personally eaten. I’ll definitely make a note to try of Fonda la Catrina and would happily add it to my list of recos once I’ve eaten there!
