If you’re looking for some new shops, watering holes, or perhaps a classic eatery that you didn’t know you need to try, then let Ethnic Seattle help you out. Here are four spots for you to try out this weekend in Seattle.



It’s Seattle Beer Week and you best believe this neighborhood bottle shop and kid-friendly watering hole has some delicious brews on tap. With a rotating food truck parked out front you could post here all day: Soak up some vitamin D on the side patio or just playing a board game inside. Chuck’s Hop Shop CD, 2001 E Union St, 206-538-0743, Sun–Thu 11-midnight, Fri & Sat 11-1am


Arrive by 10am on weekend mornings for some of the best dim sum in the city. Godspeed.
Jade Garden, 424 7th Ave S, 206-622-8181


This International District shop gives new life to old growth lumber salvaged from deconstructed buildings to create beautiful furniture. Their showroom has everything from bookshelves to long tables to chairs, and trendy woodgrain iPhone cases, too. Additionally, they’ll be hosting a pop-up shop, Salt & Pine, on May 20 and 21. Plank & Grain, 666 South King Street, 206-659-9884, 11-6pm, closed Sun & Mon


This crowdfunded cafe officially opened it’s Rainier Valley doors in March, turning the former mini mart space into a community gathering place and destination for authentic Ethiopian coffee. Owner Solomon Dubie serves fruity and citrus-forward coffee table side in the traditional Ethiopian clay pot called a jebena. You can also look for breakfast staples like savory omelettes, waffles, sandwiches, beer, wine, and more. Cafe Avole, 6630 Rainier Ave S, 206-359-1271, Mon thru Fri 6:30-8pm, Sat & Sun 8-8pm
