In 2009, fresh off a big market crash, Marination owners Kamala and Roz decided on a new kind of investment: running their own business. Big Blue took to the streets in June, with smiles for miles and a unique Hawaiian-Korean fusion cuisine in tow.
Over one million tacos and nearly five incredible years later, Marination has grown into one big aloha family! That’s one truck, one little brick-and-mortar in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, and one beachside restaurant with a full bar, huge patio, and a TO DIE FOR view. Our commitment to serving up Everyday Aloha extends throughout each of Marination’s locations.
We believe in fun. We believe in flavor. We believe in delivering daily aloha to Seattle! And we support these beliefs by hiring vibrant, joyful people to prepare, cook, and serve our saucy and delicious fare; to connect with our customers and share a smile or a joke; and to facilitate our events and catering operations.
The people have spoken again and again about how our spicy, tangy, sweet and aloha-laden fare brightens their day (if not the whole week!) Featured in local and national press, Marination’s success grew organically through word-of-mouth — and we’re proud of that!
A strong social media presence has allowed us to stay connected with the awesome people who love our food, bring their friends, and cater their events and meetings. More importantly, with the help of our awesome order takers, we’ve been able to keep our business centered on the people who’ve taken us to where we are.
Want some scratch-based street food that’s bursting with flavor? A great place to meet friends and enjoy the city? Asian fusion for lunch?
Look no further — mahalo!
