Views, brews and affordable food on the waterfront: What’s not to like about the newest Marination location? Unlike its upscale neighbor to the south, Salty’s, Ma Kai has a workman-like dining room furnished with extra-long picnic tables and floor-to-ceiling windows. Or take a pint of Marination Brown Session Ale ($5) and perfectly moist cod in a crackly beer-panko crust (exclusive to this location; $10.50) to the spacious waterfront patio out back, where the view of the Seattle skyline is only interrupted by hungry seagulls. Of course, your Marination faves are all here—kimchi fried rice ($6), Spam sliders ($2.50), kalbi tacos ($2.50)—but there’s also breakfast: kimchi, egg and sausage breakfast burritos, even loco moco ($8.50).
