If you didn’t know to ask, chances are you’d never see the breakfast menu at Kung-Ho in Bellevue. More intrepid diners can randomly select a number of items and have a good chance of enjoying most everything, but let me steer you to a few of my personal favorites.
All of the ciabatta breads at Berkshire Mountain Bakery are fantastic in their own right, but for a chocolate lover like me, the Bread & Chocolate loaf is irresistible. It’s addictive, filling, and a deliciously messy treat to eat.
This classic mom-and-pop restaurant has a simple one-page menu that’s heavy on the Hangul, but ask for help and you’ll discover satisfying dishes like pollock soup and bibimbap available as early as 8 a.m.
If you’re trying to make authentic Japanese ramen, continue to call it by its original name: ramen. But if you’re not trying to be authentic, then let’s call your creation something new: Wramen.
A return visit to Bainbridge leads to an Italian food discovery and a chance to fall in love with a restaurant for a second time.
With a self-service cooler area where you can design your own hot pot and a window showcasing the chef’s noodle-making skills, Uway Malatang is a desirable destination in a largely abandoned mini-mall.
4649 Restaurant and Ramen Man are steps apart from each other, but each one brings its own distinct style to the bourgeoning Wallingford Japantown.
Formerly known as Bo Laksa King’s Bubbles and Bits, this hole-in-the-wall restaurant serves an array of pan-Asian dishes, including Burmese salads and the namesake noodle soup.
Sometimes all I want is simple fried rice. Cold, (preferably) day-old rice hitting a hot wok results in grains that are soft and fluffy, not to mention a great vehicle for other flavors. Fortunately for me, Seattle’s International District has a host of Chinese restaurants that fire up fried rice. Two of the most-touted are virtually back-to-back, so I decided to visit both to compare their offerings.
