Chowing down on Chowking in Tukwila, WA.

In my happy place at Chowking!
Chowking brings their yummy Filipino-Chinese fast food experience from the Philippines to the US! They have over 19 locations in California, Nevada & Washington.

This Chowking location is conveniently located inside the South Center Mall beside Seafood City Supermarket in Tukwila, WA. I learned that Seafood City is only in the US and serves as a one-stop shop for Filipinos living in the US. They have lots of locations in California, Washington, Nevada and one in Hawaii.

Going to both Chowking and Seafood City was the perfect way to get the taste from the Philippines so close to home. I can't wait to go back!

Best to start a meal with dessert, Chowking's legendary halo halo!
