Uwajimaya International District

600 5th Avenue South
Seattle, WA
United States

Uwajimaya is a large Asian grocery that helped revitalize an entire section of downtown Seattle. The store itself is fairly massive, and features everything from an overflowing produce section, to an immense selection of sauces, to rice cookers and other household goods, and finally to a diverse food court. Surrounding the store, you'll find a small town with restaurants dishing out dim sum, udon and any Pacific-focused delicacy your heart could desire.

Curator Ryan Snyder

Ryan was raised in a funeral home, and consequently takes everything too seriously. Especially food. He doesn’t shy away from smoking 25 pounds of pork belly, nor from undertaking an intense year of “study” sessions to become a certified sommelier. He writes about charcuterie on Meat Club, and hosts recipes with his venture Foodgeeks.
