Hawaiian Korean curb cuisine coming out of Seattle's sauciest food truck! Follow us on Twitter for up-to-the-minute curbside action @curb_cuisine

In 2009, fresh off a big market crash, Marination owners Kamala and Roz decided on a new kind of investment: running their own business. Big Blue took to the streets in June, with smiles for miles and a unique Hawaiian-Korean fusion cuisine in tow.

We believe in fun. We believe in flavor. We believe in delivering daily aloha to Seattle! And we support these beliefs by hiring vibrant, joyful people to prepare, cook, and serve our saucy and delicious fare; to connect with our customers and share a smile or a joke; and to facilitate our events and catering operations.
The people have spoken again and again about how our spicy, tangy, sweet and aloha-laden fare brightens their day (if not the whole week!) Featured in local and national press, Marination’s success grew organically through word-of-mouth — and we’re proud of that!

A strong social media presence has allowed us to stay connected with the awesome people who love our food, bring their friends, and cater their events and meetings. More importantly, with the help of our awesome order takers, we’ve been able to keep our business centered on the people who’ve taken us to where we are.

Want some scratch-based street food that’s bursting with flavor? A great place to meet friends and enjoy the city? Asian fusion for lunch?

Look no further — mahalo!
xoxo, Marination

The History Behind Why Hawaiians Are Obsessed With Spam

Did you know that Hawaiʻi eats more SPAM than any state in the U.S. — about 7 million cans a year? Don't miss the 15th Annual Waikiki SPAM Jam if you're headed for paradise. Hawaii consumes 7 million cans of Spam a year and there are only 1.42 million of us currently living in the islands—let that sink in a little bit. Nonetheless, Spam is both a blessing and a curse to Hawaiian cuisine.
