The Stranger

Dear readers,

We need your help. The coronavirus crisis in Seattle is a major threat to The Stranger's ability to keep the city informed. We pride ourselves on having navigated many storms in the world of independent local media, but this time is different.

90% of our revenue—from advertising, ticketing fees, and our own events—is directly tied to people getting together in groups. The coronavirus situation has virtually eliminated this income all at once. At a time when the city needs local coverage more than ever, we're asking for your help to support continued coverage of everything happening in Seattle. You can make one-time or recurring donations. We can't say enough how much we appreciate your support. Thank you.

Facing East Taiwanese Restaurant

1075 Bellevue Way (Northwest Bellevue)
Bellevue, WA 98004
(Facing East)
While it’s located in Bellevue’s Belgate Plaza, Facing East is the antithesis of strip-mall dining. The reason you’re at Facing East is the pork burgers, for they are divine: unabashedly fatty, supremely musky, delicately spiced. The meat falls apart at a hint of pressure; the bun, a bland distraction in lesser incarnations, puts in work here as the dish’s backbone. It is impossible to eat just one.
Tues-Sun 11:30 am-3 pm, Tues-Thurs, Sun 5 pm-9 pm, Fri-Sat 5 pm-10 pm
