The Viet Wah located at Martin Luther King Jr. Way S., which closed this past August, has been leased by Filipino Supermarket chain, Island Pacific of California.
According to its web site, Island Pacific aspires not only to promote Filipino cuisine to Filipino communities across the United States, “but also to place it in the world culinary map. We accomplish this by offering the finest and top of the line products in our stores because that’s what Filipino cooking is all about.” We believe a country’s food is a fair reflection of its culture and we at Island Pacific continuously showcase the colorful and rich Filipino tradition to the world through native foods culled from the different regions of the Philippines.”
Island Pacific currently has markets throughout California. This will be its first Seattle location. (end)
