Here are seven of Seattle’s best cheap eats:

Tacos Chukis was born as a result of a UW grad not knowing what to do with his life. After riding a bicycle 1,700 miles to his hometown of Tijuana, he was greeted by his family and one dish: tacos. It was then and there that he’d decided to bring a taqueria to Seattle.

Instead of a high-end experience, come into Koibito for a loving mom-and-pop vibe. The menu is pretty representative of traditional Japanese cooking, while prices are reasonable for the amount of food you receive.
