Going out for a meal can be a wonderful experience, but sometimes you just need to stay in. Take out offers the best of both worlds. You get delicious restaurant food but with an unlimited supply of free drinks and no concerns about catching a cab at the end of the night.

Sometimes to make it through yet another rainy Seattle day, you need to grab a bowl of hot, delicious soup. If you’re a ramen lover, Kizuki Ramen is the spot for you. This Seattle-classic has now expanded to three locations across the city. People love Kizuki for its authentic Japanese ramen. The chef uses an ancient method of roasting the bones for the broth, before boiling, to achieve a deeper flavor. Kizuki also proudly uses exclusively American ingredients. If they cannot find an ingredient in the United States, it’s sourced directly from Japan instead. It’s this level of attention to detail that gives this restaurant its widespread reputation for amazing soup.

2. Mean Sandwich

Location: 1510 NW Leary Way, Seattle, WA 98107, United States 

Our favorite dish: The Hama Hama Oyster Po-Boy

The menu is kept small and simple, so the owners can focus on delivering a quality sandwich every single time.

Living on the West Coast offers many benefits. One of which is that you can find delicious, fresh sushi at an affordable price. If you have a sushi craving for your next take out meal, Shiro’s Sushi is your answer. This restaurant only uses local, seasonally available produce and seafood. On the menu, you’ll find salmon, squid, oysters, geoduck, clams, smelt, and Pacific albacore tuna all from the Washington and Oregon area. All other seafood is sourced nearby from Canada, Alaska, and more. We won’t lie, the menu prices are on the high-end, but it’s worth it for the quality of seafood you receive.

Despite how simple tacos are, it’s just one of those dishes that are never quite as good when you make them at home. So, it might be time for some takeout tacos! Tacos Chukis is such a Seattle favorite that they’ve been able to expand to four locations now – and counting!

 This menu offers authentic Mexican food with bold, original flavors. Despite what the name suggests, the menu goes past tacos, offering mulitas, baby burritos, quesadillas, nopal asados, and tortas sandwiches. And, best of all, this menu is so well-priced, you might find yourself ordering take out from here multiple times a week!
