The light rail excuse of the week series highlights activities in the Rainier Valley for those of you that might want to try riding Link occasionally, but have little reason to go to the Southeast or the airport. This week’s selection is the Plate of Nations:
From March 24 to April 6, ten MLK restaurants will offer special $15 and $25 meals to share. New this year, a “passport” invites diners to earn stamps for sampling the global cuisines of all 10 restaurants and to become eligible for PRIZES, in addition to ten contests on facebook to win GIFT CERTIFICATES to Plate of Nations restaurants!
Not all of these restaurants are as exotic as the theme suggests, but they’re all inexpensive. Bananas Grill and St. Dames are both former LREOTWs, and Rainier BBQ was on the Travel Channel, so it’s a step above the same old chains.
