Super Six is inspired by its location in a former auto body shop on Hudson Street in Columbia City. It’s the sixth concept by the Marination team, which includes Marination’s food truck Big Blue, Marination Station, Marination ma kai (on Alki Beach—my favorite Marination concept), Marination catering, and their home base commissary. Along with a full cocktail bar and beer garden, the menu at Super Six focuses on Asian flavors complementing American comfort food and Pacific Northwest staples.
Portuguese Sausage Hash with local vegetables, red potatoes, and two fried eggs is a standard hash with Hawaiian flair. The potatoes, eggs, and vegetables are cooked perfectly. It’s a solid choice aside from the slightly dry sausage. Chicken Fried Chicken with sausage gravy and red potatoes is rich, satisfying, and may result in a food coma. The chicken is cooked nicely and the potatoes are light and crispy.
The Hangover features kalua pork, fries, and is topped with brown gravy, cheese, scallions, and a fried egg. The fries are medium cut with a good balance of crispiness and starchiness—I want my fries to maintain some potato-ness without being as thick as steak fries or as thin and meaningless as shoestring fries. It’s basically a Hawaiian take on poutine. Pair it with their bottomless mimosas for $12, and you will kick your hangover’s a$$.
If you’re looking for something healthy, their Chinese Chicken Salad with ono grilled chicken, almonds, thinly sliced Asian pears, and crispy wontons is really tasty. The chicken is the star of the dish and is moist and tender. The sesame dressing really pulls this salad together and is something I would order again.
Have a sweet tooth? Try the Pineapple Cornbread or the fluffy Hawaiian doughnuts—Malasadas—filled with coconut or Nutella.

About the Super Six: Back in the early 1900’s, there was a great American car company called the Hudson Motor Company and one of their prized models was the Super Six. The Super Six was big enough to fit the family, but powerful enough to earn driving respect. This practical yet saucy roadster inspired the restaurant concept.
