Happy Solstice! Summer is officially here, and there's a wave of new food updates, from West African food to handmade dumplings. Plus, Musang is back at last! For more ideas, check out our food and drink guide.


Jollof Hub West African Cuisines List
West African cuisine can be difficult to find in Seattle, so it's all the more exciting that this family-owned spot specializing in homestyle Nigerian and Gambian food opened in Greenwood at the beginning of the month. Dishes include jollof rice, meat pies, lamb afra, okra soup, and more.

Lin Handmade Dumplings List
This Chinese handmade dumpling spot has taken over the former Little Ting's Dumplings List location in Bellevue, serving xiao long bao, pan-fried buns, shrimp wontons, braised noodle soup, and other delicacies.

Musang List
Rejoice: Chef Melissa Miranda's James Beard-nominated Filipino restaurant, which went on hiatus in late January due to its pipes freezing and bursting, has at last reopened its doors.

Laurel List
Kate Opatz (the owner of La Dive and Nacho Borracho List ) and La Dive bar manager Nico Ciel plan to open this pint-sized craft cocktail bar in the former Crumble & Flake List space on Capitol Hill later this year.
