Best neighborhood pub! Great bartenders! – I have never had a bad experience at Jabu's. It doesn't matter what day of the week or what time of the day the staff makes you feel welcome and are there to show you a great time. The beer selection is great ! The regulars are always friendly and the bar attracts people from all walks of life. Never a dull moment at Jabu's. I just experienced my first Sunday morning breakfast this morning and the food is cheap, large portions and tasted like grandma cooked it herself! Football and good food! You can't go wrong!
Good times were had – I've driven by this bar many times over the last couple years, but finally made a stop in while on a walk. What was supposed to be one beer turned in to many and my friend and I had a great time. They had a good beer selection and full bar. The bartender was friendly, seemed to know a lot of the other customers and was actually willing to chat it up. There are two sections of the place, which I never knew before going in. One side is really small, the other was larger with a pool table and TV's. It seemed to be a locals bar, but willing to let others in. I will be going back again!
Mmmm Beer! – Alcohol and cigarettes? What's not to like? Oh did I mention beer.
Imaginative Chef Paul Vallely strives to give British food a good name--and succeeds. – The Scene
Located near Seattle Center, the bistro draws pre-theater diners who often return for dessert and drinks. This space once housed a Spanish restaurant, which shows in the charming tiled floor and starkly contrasting dark window trim, offset by cream-colored walls. Service is friendly, informed and sometimes delivered in an English accent.
Perfectly grilled portobellos with balsamic vinaigrette, greens and chevre sound a note familiar throughout Seattle. Vallely's version of the quintessentially British meat pie is covered in puff pastry, containing ostrich breast, with Walla Walla onions and rhubarb lending sweet and tangy undertones to its sauce. Beautifully baked halibut cheeks crusted with herbs and couscous are served over a variant of colcannon. An Irish favorite, colcannon traditionally combines mashed potatoes and kale or cabbage, but this version includes parsnips.
