Frybread and Indian taco sale in Tacoma


Reason #1817 why I love the Church of the Indian Fellowship’s frybread Fridays: You can smell the frybread before entering the back door into the church’s basement dining room.

The Presbyterian church is located up a steep driveway up the hill from the Tacoma outpost of the Emerald Queen Casino at the entrance of the Puyallup Tribal Cemetery. It’ll have its next frybread sale from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Friday Nov. 1.

Why should you go? Because frybread, obviously! Where to Dine Pierce County member Anne-Cecile Baer Porter and her husband, Rev. Irvin Porter, the church’s reverend, tell me that 100 percent of proceeds from the frybread events support church programs. If you have specific questions, Anne or Irvin can answer, but here’s what I know and love about their frybread!

Their menu is simple: a piece of frybread (about $3), fresh and warm, or their own version of Indian tacos ($8 for the taco or $9 for a meal combo with a soda).

I appreciate the texture of the frybread, which is elastic and chewy in all the right ways, and that the frybread tacos are made to order and church members are generous with the toppings, which include beans, taco meat, cheese and fresh veggies. Go get some!!

WHAT: Frybread sale!
WHEN: 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Friday November 1
WHERE: Church of Indian Fellowship 2232 E. 28th St., Tacoma; 253-840-2533
DIRECTIONS: The Church is located just above the parking lot of the EQC off River Road (not the Fife EQC location). Look for the Tribal Cemetery entrance and the church is just beyond that.
