If you’re tired of chasing around one of America’s top food trucks, you can now get your daily fix of Marination Mobile’s regular menu, and more, at the all-new Marination Station opening at 11 a.m. today.
This little outpost above the QFC at Broadway and Pike in Capitol Hill looks and feels like the inside of the truck. And while they’re serving those same kimchi quesadillas, kimchi fried rice, sliders and tacos, you can explore some specials, including the current one: loco moco. This Hawaiian specialty consists of a hamburger patty with brown gravy over rice, topped with a fried egg—along with a little extra special something that provides a Marination twist.
Co-owner Kamala Saxton calls loco moco “Hawaiian menudo”—perfect hangover food. Keep that in mind, as you can order beer at Marination Station, and there’s even patio space turned beer garden just outside the door.
I was glad to give loco moco a try at last night’s soft opening; it’s food many will find comforting. And while I look forward to other specials, I’m still a sucker for the kalbi tacos—so bright, and so right.
