In this episode of Dining on a Dime: Seattle, join Lucas Peterson in what is hopefully a celebration and not an elegy for this Rainier Valley mainstay that has faithfully served the community for 30 years. King Donuts is an eclectic donut shop that is three-pronged: it serves fresh donuts, teriyaki, and happens to be a laundromat as well. If those three things don't seem to naturally go together, well, just watch the episode.
Teriyaki is extremely popular in Seattle, and widely proliferated in the city until recently, as those restaurants have been shutting down. It's a simple, working class meal of meat that is grilled with a glaze of sticky, sweet soy-based glaze. Seattle, with a large Japanese population, became synonymous with the teriyaki restaurant. Join Peterson in this episode as he makes use of all three of King Donut's services.
