There are a lot of food options on Capitol Hill, but if you need a fast, satisfying meal, Marination Station is a good place to keep in mind. It’s the sister spot to Marination Ma Kai, a waterfront restaurant that serves our favorite Hawaiian food in the form of tacos, quesadillas, and sandwiches. The Cap Hill location has the same menu, only your view is of the UPS Store instead of the Seattle skyline. Grab some kimchi fried rice and some macaroni salad to bring to Optimism Brewery.
