Serious Sandwiches at Un Bien Seattle
Saying Un Bien serves sandwiches is a little like saying the Mona Lisa is a painting. It doesn’t really capture the essence of this fine Caribbean specialty fare! These sandwiches are lovingly crafted from slow-cooked, fall-apart pork (other options available, but we’ll get there in a minute: pork is clearly the star), on fresh baguettes slathered in aioli, with cilantro, pickled jalapenos, caramelized onions, and crisp romaine lettuce. Not recommended in fancy clothes or on a first date! Otherwise, everyone should just eat here all the time.
Beyond the Pork
If pork isn’t your favorite, there are many other options for creating your sandwich delight here at Un Bien. There’s steak, chicken (breast or thigh), sautéed prawns, fish of the day, seared scallops, and two vegetarian options: tofu or caramelized onions. Vegetarians can also find satisfaction in fire-roasted corn, Caribbean rice and beans, and Un Bien Seattle greens.
If it’s dinner you’re after, and sandwiches just don’t cut it for some reason, Un Bien also offers a sumptuous dinner selection. Choose from roasted pork shoulder, grilled chicken breast or thigh, Caribbean scallops, prawns, fish of the day, or sautéed tofu. Need a little more? You can always get extra black beans, jasmine rice, and caramelized onions on the side.
Guess what? If you just can’t get enough, Un Bien also offers Caribbean food Seattle catering for your party or special day. Treat your guests with a meal they won’t soon forget! Un Bien can be the icing on top of the cake for your special Seattle event. You may have to ask them to go easy on the aioli, though, or your dry-cleaning bill could be huge!
