Astoria and A Lot of Peppers (New York, Day 3)

I had a non-food commitment most of my third day in New York, so during the evening we wanted to explore another area close to our base in Flushing. Somewhat randomly, we reached a verdict and headed to Corona for some old-fashioned southern Italian fare…

Momofuku Noodle Bar (NY, Day 2, continued)

I’m a lucky peach. What more can I say? Anyone who has a chance to try one (or two, or ten) of David Chang’s pork buns would say the same thing. We had hoped to go to Momofuku (it means lucky peach in Japanese) Ssam…

Harboring Dim Sum Doubts at Harbor City

I’ve long lamented the lack of good dim sum in Seattle, but with a dim sum–loving friend moving soon to China, we decided to have one last Chinese meal for the foreseeable future. Of course, he’ll soon be having great Chinese food daily, and perhaps…

Dishin’: Belly Full of Bellies at Cafe Ori

Following the advice of one of Seattlest’s faithful readers (and proving we value the comments!), we continued the craze of eating on the Eastside, where we think the best Chinese restaurants are located (our favorite is Szechuan Chef, followed by Yea’s Wok). This time our…

Sentosa and the Sad State of Seattle Dim Sum

As I write, an email sits in my inbox, inviting me out for dim sum on Sunday. There’s just one problem: I don’t do Seattle dim sum. I confess that I’ve been one of those obnoxious people on Chowhound who replies to endless inquiries like…

Dishin’: Really Eating at Szechuan Chef

“Can you really eat that?” Seattlest loves a restaurant that puts food on a menu and then questions why you’ve ordered it. Not just by the server, but also by the owner. This happens to us repeatedly at Szechuan Chef, our favorite Chinese restaurant in…

Dishin’: Getting Some Tail

With the first feel of fall and temperatures struggling to get out of the 60’s, Seattlest had a hankering for a hearty soup. Something healthy to stop the sniffles ahead of a cross-country flight the next day. We found it in the International District. We’ve…
