“What the Fearless Critic books and apps have that UrbanSpoon and Yelp don’t is a complete lack of bullshit.”
“I’ve spent years driving around with Zagat...but I think I’ll replace it with this Fearless Critic guide.”

The pork at this tin shack is the best thing between slices of bread in Seattle

Shove a huge pile of expertly grilled pork, thick-cut caramelized onions, jalapeños, and cilantro into a Macrina Bakery baguette slathered in garlicky mayo, and you’ve got the five-napkin enterprise that is Paseo’s signature sandwich.

Most people order the original beast or Paseo’s slight twist on a typical Cuban sandwich, but the menu includes everything from garlicky seared scallops or tofu to the “Onion Obsession,” which is simply those melt-in-the-mouth caramelized onions with some tapenade and cilantro on a baguette. And the gluten-free needn’t rend their garments: all of the sandwich fillings, plus a few other options (like black tiger prawns in a spicy red sauce), come as mains with vegetarian black beans, corn on the cob, and a salad topped with pickled beets and cabbage.

The Fremont location is a cross between a rehabbed shipping container and an opened sardine tin: the silver shack has barely enough room for the bustling kitchen and five tables. When the place is slammed, it’s not a very relaxing place for a sit-down; patrons perch on curbs, eat in cars, or take their food down the street to the Buckaroo Tavern.
