Yelp just released their list of the top 100 places to eat in the US in 2023, and one Seattle restaurant had the honor of being included on the list. It may not be what you expect. Seattle has several restaurants that receive a lot of buzz, and many of them—such as Canlis and The Pink Door—are fine-dining spots. The Seattle restaurant on Yelp’s top 100 list for 2023, however, is the casual Central American eatery La Cabaña.
Located in Greenwood, La Cabaña is a family-owned restaurant that has been bringing authentic dishes from Central America to Seattle since 2015. It is included in the #69 spot on Yelp’s list due to reviewers’ love for their authentic, homemade dishes. Essential to its success is that “the menu lets you choose dishes by country—including Honduras, Costa Rica, and Guatemala.”
Planning to visit for the first time? Yelp reviewers most frequently recommended getting the Salvadoran pupusas, Honduran carne asada, plantains, and tamales—although one reviewer noted that “you literally cannot go wrong on this menu.”
In addition to the quality of the food, praise from Yelp reviewers for La Cabaña touched on the large portions, the “quaint” and “homey” ambiance, and the friendly staff. Just be aware that it is a small space and can get full quickly during peak times.
This is Yelp’s 10th year of making this list that is entirely based off of what their users rated as the “most popular and highly rated restaurants.” To see the full list, visit Yelp.
