I've got empanadas on the brain today, which makes me want to go eat at La Isla for lunch! If you love Puerto Rican food you've probably been to this restaurant, which started out as a street vendor and now is one of the best sources of Puerto Rican cuisine in Seattle. If you've never been, you're in for a treat.
The slow-roasted pork shoulder is incredible, and if you get it in a bowl of pernil you'll get it with toston. It has such flavorful spices that it's hard for me to choose something else, but the fact that you can get a variety of empanadas, including pizza flavor, presents a big temptation, too!
