Roz Edison and Kamala Saxton have been spreading “everyday Aloha” around Seattle since 2009. The duo, who both have backgrounds in education, took the leap to start the Marination brand after a late-night wine-fuelled taco hunt with their friends proved unsatisfying. Inspired by Kogi truck in LA, they set out to bring their own unique take on the kind of fusion tacos you’ll crave anytime of the day or night. “Hawaiian food is delicious,” Roz says, “and there’s not enough of it in Seattle”.

Super Six is Roz and Kamala’s sixth Marination concept. Nestled in the heart of Columbia City, the restaurant occupies an old auto repair shop that Roz and Kamala had been eyeing for years. “This is exactly where we want to be,” said Roz, “this is our neighborhood”. The flavor stays true to Hawaiian-Korean fusion and there’s something for everyone on the menu, from furikake popcorn to spicy chicken wings. Their delicious food is complemented by their Aloha spirit and community mentality. “We call your name when your order’s up, we don’t give you a number...and that’s a distinguishing quality,” says Roz.

The Marination restaurants are also active philanthropically, with an emphasis on women's rights, civil rights, and kids. “We try to support the organizations that are supporting the communities where we exist,” says Roz.
Fun Fact
Their most popular cocktail, the Thatcher, is named after the first female car designer in the U.S. , Betty Thatcher, who worked for the Hudson Motor Company – the same company that owned the auto body shop where Super Six is located today!
