Update 2.0 – Paseos has been re-opened under new management or a while now But there’s some really big shoes to fill. I ordered the Smokin Thigh Sandwich and the Paseo Press (my usual here before they closed). The Smokin thigh was still good but just not right. The original one was super juicy and just melt in your mouth delicious. Th new version of the Smokin Thigh had some really dry chicken and was pretty salty. I was a little disappointed but I hope the new owners will continue to adjust the recipe and try to replicate its original glory. The Paseo Press on the other hand was spot on…juicy pork that falls apart when you pick it up. Same delicious aioli sauce and grilled onions and of course the fresh bread. It used to be a really closed race for the best sandwich at Paseos but I think the clear winner now in the Paseo Press…Go get one now!

Update – I know it’s sad, but the rumors were true…they are closed. The Stranger Article

If you are from Seattle and have not heard of Paseos, you really have been living under a rock (to quote the Geico commercial).  This place is soooo good.  The reviews on Yelp do not lie.  My favorites are the Cuban Press (fka the Midnight Cuban Press) and the Smokin Thigh Sandwiches.  The Midnight Cuban Press is filled with plenty of peppers, cheese, and pork that is so moist and juicy that it will fall apart when you eat it.  The Midnight Cuban will take a little longer to prepare compared to the other sandwiches but it is worth the wait.  The Smokin Thigh Sandwich is filled with flavorful dark chicken meat with caramelized onion.  Both sandwiches comes in the same harder-than-normal bread that soaks up all that juicy run off from your veggies, cheese, and meat.  You cannot go wrong with The Midnight Cuban Press or the Smokin Thigh but make sure you grab plenty of napkins though…trust me you’ll need them.

Note – With good food comes long lines.  However, you can call ahead and order over the phone to avoid the long lines.  You can also head to the second location down near Shilshole Bay/Ballard area.  The Shilshole Bay location has a few more seats and much better scenery being next to the water.  On those nice summer days definitely head to this location and take your sandwich to the beach/park to eat.  If you are looking for a Paseos fix in the winter time you may be out of luck.  These guys are normally closed for 2-3 months in the winter.

Also, remember both locations are cash only and have very limited seating (like 10 seats).
