According to most restaurant critics, the perfect hoagie is served on a plate, which rests on a table with legs. Try some authentic hoagies the way they were meant to be served with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of hoagies, pasta, drinks, and more at Hey Paison! in Burien.
Two-time winner of Best Sandwich Shop from CityVoter and KING 5's Best of Western Washington, Hey Paison! offers hungry tummies an assortment of comfort foods, authentic Italian favorites, and willpower-withering desserts. Like the ability to throat sing, the recipes at the foundation of the restaurant's menu have been passed down through generations, and they're brought to their full appetite-swelling potential by high-quality ingredients such as specially made bread and hand-rolled meatballs. Hunker down with a Philly cheesesteak ($8.25), or give meat the cold shoulder with an eggplant parmesan hoagie ($7.25). Pop's Italian porkettes pair thin-sliced roast pork with optional provolone and roasted peppers ($7.75–$9.50) while they scheme to borrow the car from Grand-Pop's chicken parmesan hoagie, which incorporates provolone, mozzarella, and sausage-tomato gravy ($8.95). Desserts include Tastykakes, cannolis ($4.50), and cheesecakes good enough to have earned a spot on Whole Foods Market's shelves ($3.50–$4.50 per slice).
Paison translates roughly to friend, and Hey Paison! hits customers like a friendship hurricane, its employees making frequent use of the namesake salutation. The restaurant supplements the warm welcome with a warm atmosphere, swaddling its guests in a mélange of Rat Pack tunes, movie posters, and record covers.
