SEA’s Best Food Choices

No matter where you’re traveling, the food options at the airport can make or break your trip. Deciding on Seatac Airport’s many dining options to find the best place to eat before your flight can be daunting, due to the amount of food and restaurant options, for all tastes and pockets. Read on.

The main terminal is divided into two sections: the North Satellite and the South Satellite. The North Satellite has more food options than the South Satellite.

Central Terminal

Lucky Louie Fish Shack

Fresh, fast Alaska pollock fish and chips are served in this area. Other tasty choices include clam chowder, honey teriyaki salmon, and a fish-shaped cheesecake with a cream-filled interior.

Koi Shi Sushi Bento

The walk-up counter stocks pre-portioned rolls. However, those who have more time can create their own poke bowl. Our favorite is the Spicy tuna with cucumber and mango.

Rod O'Neal, one of the partners, is from Australia. The cuisine is based on Yves Maganya's roots in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Seattle airport, according to the Port of Seattle, was "the first-ever menu of African dishes in a US airport," and The Stranger's Jasmine Bager wrote that the food is "some of the best I've ever had."
