FEATURED STORIES

Archipelago is part of a wave of restaurants showcasing Southeast Asian cuisine that have sprung up in the Seattle area in the last few years, reports the Seattle Times.

“We are so humbled to have this opportunity, as the children of immigrants, to be a creative part of life. To show that the often forgotten and overlooked stories of the marginalized and underrepresented are as valuable as any ingredient on a plate, perhaps — even more fulfilling,” Manuguid and Verzosa texted The Seattle Times. “We are incredibly thankful for our city’s support, giving us the fuel to showcase the diversity of our beautiful region.”
