Where Can You Find Costco's Seafood Bake?

Whether you're in Texas, Pennsylvania, or California, you pretty much know what you're going to see on the menu of Costco's beloved food court. Once you start visiting Costco food courts in other countries, however, you'll find a wide variety of items unavailable in the U.S. Warehouses in Canada, for example, offer chicken wings and poutine, while Japanese Costcos serve an unexpected Middle Eastern dish: falafel salad. One country even offers a pescatarian version of the in-house eatery's delicious Chicken Bake.

Appropriately named the Seafood Bake, this unique dish features imitation crab, shrimp, and clams tossed in a creamy sauce and stuffed inside dough that's baked until golden brown. The handheld can only be found at Costco food courts in Taiwan, meaning that cardholders living outside of the country may have to travel a great distance to sink their teeth into one. Based on its reviews, though, the Seafood Bake might be worth the trip. Several Costco fans online have rated the sea-based menu item a 10 out of 10 or above, with TikTok user @madebytessalin awarding it the beyond-perfect score of 12 out of 10. "The sauce was so creamy like a clam chowder, and there [were] huge chunks of seafood. So good," the TikToker said, also noting that it had a crispy, cheesy crust.

What Else You'll Find At Costco Food Courts In Taiwan

The food court offerings at Taiwan's 14 warehouses may very well put Costco's U.S. menu to shame, and the country's exclusive Seafood Bake is just one example. When TikTok user @waynedang visited a Taiwanese Costco in February 2024, they found seafood pizza, clam chowder, and even buckets of fried chicken on the menu, while a Reddit user spotted a tartar fish steak sandwich in the fall of 2023. According to another Reddit post, espresso beverages like Americanos and lattes are also available and can be ordered either hot or iced for members who may need a post-shopping pick-me-up.

Those intrigued by the Seafood Bake may be excited to learn that Costco food courts in Taiwan also offer a Bulgogi Bake, which @waynedang spoke highly of during their visit. "The bulgogi itself is so tender, so soft, with a hint of sweetness," they raved.

Unlike the Seafood Bake, the Bulgogi Bake isn't exclusive to Taiwan; it has also been spotted at Costco warehouses in Korea and Japan. Those who don't have any trips to these countries scheduled in the near future can try making their own versions of the Seafood or Bulgogi Bakes at home — you can even make a copycat Costco Chicken Bake in your air fryer.
