We in Queen Anne are getting some spoiled taste buds! First Mobile Chowdown makes a comeback in QA over the weekend, and now one of the city’s most popular street food vendors, Marination Mobile, is making a neighborhood visit!
The Hawaiian/Korean-inspired street eat truck will be in Lower Queen Anne from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. today, Tuesday, July 13, just off 1st Ave N near Republican Street (where the old QFC was, right by the KeyArena and Seattle Center entrance). Happy lunching!

Seattle’s original curbside cuisine celebration, Mobile Chowdown, will be back for the fourth installment of the street food festival (and the third right here in Queen Anne) this Saturday, July 10 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the former Fun Forest site (now known as Center Square) at Seattle Center (just across from EMP and beneath the Space Needle).
The first Mobile Chowdown held in Interbay last October was a big hit, despite the long lines, food shortages (due to the high volume of attendees) and lack of bathrooms. But the festival took suggestions from the public, and improved its organization for the second round in January, adding covered seating areas and more vendors. The third time around (though not in Queen Anne), the festival challenged Portland mobile vendors to a regional street food-off, and added live music to the mix. So I think it’s safe to say we can expect bigger and better things from the fourth Mobile Chowdown fiesta!
In the biggest lineup yet, Mobile Chowdown 4 will include Anita’s Crepes, Hallava Falafel, El Camion, Kao Samai Thai, Marination Mobile, Dante’s Inferno Dogs, Here & There Grill, Parfait Ice Cream, Got Soup?, Al’s Sausage, Koi Fusion (PDX), Whiffies (PDX), Potato Champion (PDX), The People’s Pig (PDX), Maximus/Minimus, Skillet, Top Pot Doughnuts and Street Treats.
DJ Joy will be back by popular demand to play music for the crowd. And new to the event this time around: a beer garden sponsored by Pyramid Breweries.
Mobile Chowdown is co-sponsored by Seattle magazine and Suzuki Chou Communimedia.

Many Queen Anne residents and lucky passersby who wandered to the Upper Queen Anne Key Bank opening this afternoon were bought lunch on the bank.
For their grand opening celebration, the bank set up events outside their store and across the street in the Safeway parking lot, where they gave out $10 lunch vouchers to Hawaiian-Korean street vendor Marination Mobile, who was there exclusively for the event.
In front of the bank, at 2105 Queen Anne Ave. N., KUBE 93.3 and KJR 95.7 set up booths and were giving away bumper stickers and promotional prizes.
Inside the bank long lines of people enjoyed the Mariners Moose, while waiting to meet former Mariner Jay Buhner, who signed autographs to fans from 12 to 1 p.m.
The bank did all this as a promotion for their new branch on the top of the hill – a way of introducing themselves to the neighborhood.
“We’ve had a great turnout,” said Senior Relationship Manager and new Queen Anne resident Heather Cortez. “I’m down to my last bunch of tickets!”

Remember that new Key Bank that opened up on the top of the hill? Well, if you’re wandering Queen Anne Ave today then you’re in luck. The bank is throwing their official grand opening right now, until 2 p.m., “or until we run out of tickets,” an employee said.
The branch located at 2105 Queen Anne Ave. N. will be giving away free lunch tickets good for $10 at Marination Mobile, the famed Hawaiian-Korean fusion street food vendor. According to a branch employee, former Seattle Mariner Jay Buhner and the Mariner Moose will also be outside the bank signing autographs from 12 to 1 p.m.
