Do Not Go to This Restaurant - Restaurants - The Stranger, Seattle's Only Newspaper: "Do Not Go to This Restaurant Because Then There Will Be More for Me By Thadius Van Landingham III Jack's Tapas Cafe (Mainly Chinese) 5211 University Way, 523-6855 Daily 11:30 am–2:30 pm, 5–9:30 pm Article Tools * Email This * Print * ExpandShare o Digg o Newsvine Jack's Tapas Cafe (Mainly Chinese) is perhaps the greatest restaurant name in Seattle. It becomes all the more likeable when you learn that this cafe serves no coffee and their tapas plates are the size of most other restaurants' entrées. It moves to fully loveable when you realize that there's no irony or camp intended by the name; this is a full-on ESL problem. The restaurant's command of the language is further demonstrated in the one descriptive note in the menu, and here I decide I want to marry whomever is writing their copy: 'We cook to your desire as name your dish.' Jack's, the project of chef Jack Tai and his extended family, is one of the finest new Asian restaurants in Seattle, a city that doesn't suffer from a lack of fine Asian restaurants. Chef Tai's fusion of neighboring cuisines is subtle, a mélange of his native Taiwan and the cuisines of northern and western China. "
