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. Although we recommend all of their tacos, the taco chukis and taco adobada take the cake.

Pick between sliced savory pies and sliced sweet pies at Pie Bar. We love their coconut cream pie, mud pie, and desserted island crumble. Their steak pot pie is also wonderful, as is the buffalo chicken pie. Yes, that’s buffalo wings in a pie.

Although not the cheapest of the cheap eats, we definitely expected to pay more for the quality of dishes at Kedai Makan. The authentic Filipino eats are sure to transport your taste buds to the Philippines.

Delicious, authentic, and affordable is what Pho Than Brothers preach. They aren’t wrong, though. Their Vietnamese food really is delicious, authentic, and affordable.
