If you’re looking to eat your way around Seattle this weekend then you need to check out Plate of Nations. This festival is the signature event of the MLK Business Association and promotes independently-owned restaurants in the MLK community aka Rainier Valley. For the next 10 days, you can join in on these restaurants traditions and try some of the most diverse food in the city.

This year you can dine at 15 southeast Seattle restaurants that are taking part in Plate of Nations. Cuisines range from BBQ to Ethiopian to Hawaiian and more. What’s extra great about this festival is the fact that you can do it on your own time and pick and choose just which restaurants you’d like to visit. And you can enjoy menus crafted perfectly for tasting a bit of everything priced affordably at $20-$30.
