Sometimes, stopping somewhere for a quick sandwich in South Lake Union can feel like getting a bartender’s attention on a Saturday night. Market House Meats not only has the best sandwiches in the neighborhood, but it’s also the quietest place to get one. They specialize in cured meats like pastrami, corned beef, and brisket, and every sandwich here is phenomenal. You get a scoop of tangy potato salad and a knockoff store brand Oreo with every sandwich, so it makes for a hearty lunch. While the entire Amazon population is around the corner waiting in lines to slurp broth at Pho Bac, come here for the best reuben in the city.
