Seattle Weekly's Description
Bakeman's is a subterranean cafeteria on Cherry Street known mainly for its homemade meatloaf sandwiches and Soup Nazi demeanor of its longtime proprietor, Jason Wang. The meatloaf is fairly rudimentary: The beef is pressed until smooth, and seasoned with a mix of spices that taste something like onion soup mix. Made fresh each morning, it has a slightly sour flavor that calls out for ketchup. Seated on house made white bread with a plug of lettuce shreds, the meatloaf has a blue-collar appeal that helps the basement cafeteria sell hundreds of sandwiches every weekday.
