We have been to Un Bien many times. My other half lives a lot closer to it than I do. It is always a treat when we go there, not because their prices are high, which they aren't, but because I live a lot farther...away from it than she does. Our Go To favorite items are listed below. Pork Loin Sandwich - Deliciously messy. I don't care if all the savory juices drip all over my fingers when I eat this sandwich. Good sandwiches like this one are supposed to be messy. :o) Fire Roasted Corn - These are somewhat seasonal. I am always glad when they are available. They have mastered the perfect blend of spices and sauces with this corn. Salad with pork (or chicken) and caramelized onions - Ample portions with great flavor. We add extra onions that sometimes also find their way into our sandwiches. We end up splitting everything and always leave there full (pre-pandemic), extremely satisfied, and didn't have to spend an inordinate amount of money. We love and highly recommend it!More

Flavorful, homemade sandwiches. My favorite is The Press. We like the dishes as well but our favorite is the sandwich. A small eating area. This is perfect takeout but you will use your napkins. Portions of meet are generous which keeps us coming back. Enjoy

Eating the Caribbean Roast Sandwich was a pleasurable experience indeed. Each bite was flavorful to the end, combining the roasted pork, toasted bread, onions, jalapenos, lettuce, and unique sauce that had a twinge of horseradish sauce. Don't eat this without a lot of napkins though...as its messy and the pork, sauce, and oils find their way off the sandwich and onto the plate. The help is friendly, and the crowd is respectable, keeping recommended distance during the COVID.More

This one is located in Ballard. it is run by the son of the former owner. The old place had to be sold and is not as good. This place is great. Excellent sandwiches. They do it right. Great service. Good value. Great variety. It...is off the beaten path, but I consider all of Ballard to be off the beaten path, The food here is way better than the place looks. Quick service, Excellent choice.More

This little stand by a busy road delivered far over my expectations! My husband and I had the #23 ($14.50) and recommend this place to everyone. The food is Gordon Ramsey quality food at an Applebee’s price range. There’s a cute sitting area which creates...a fun family friendly atmosphere to devour your new found yummy goodness!More

I bought a gift certificate as a gift last time here and a salad with prawns for myself. Their salad is awesome with greens and beets and a light dressing. Their sandwiches are *the bomb* and they have rice and protein choices. Either location has...great service with friendly people working.More

Really excellent Caribbean sandwiches and really good value. Have been here a few times now. Love the slow roasted Pork Shoulder and the pan seared scallops and garlic tapenade.

Beans are the best! And the slow-roasted pork—whether sandwiched or served on a plate—is so so fine. Caribbean flavors with authenticity. Real food, real taste. Return trips anticipated. And the price is excellent value! Good sized portions. Take away or outdoor dining at communal tables....Maximum comfort food...with pizzazzMore
