What to eat in and around Seattle today: Salare Restaurant

Aug 6 2020, 9:27 pm

When eating at Salare, it’s all about passing along tradition through food.

The name itself draws its origin from the Latin word sal which means ‘salt’ and the term ‘salare’ which is the act of using salt to season, preserve, or cure, “which was introduced to Chef Jordan while he was in Italy studying the art of salumi making,” according to the restaurant’s website.

Chef Edouardo Jordan has taken his years of culinary training and traveling to create his restaurant which preserves the culture and traditions of worldwide cuisines. Each month, he highlights cuisines “that have been influenced by the African diaspora.”

This month’s feature is Jamaica and the islands, as well as their deep history of colonization, the African slave trade, and migration.

“While it’s impossible to pinpoint a single influence for the cuisine, the influences of indigenous Caribbean, African, Creole, Cajun, Latin American, Indian, South Asian, and Middle Eastern cuisines are present, creating a unique cuisine known as Caribbean Cuisine.”

Start your order with olives, fermented and pickled vegetables, black-eyed pea hummus, or a selection of seasonal charcuterie.

Next, pick a salad to share before diving into one of five mains. We recommend the flavor-packed vegetable curry, curry goat, and jerk chicken.

Finally, finish off the meal with an oat milk panna cotta or sweet potato cookies.
