Catch-Up: Asian Food and Noodles on the Road

This should finally catch me up on my missed meals of note (or not so noteworthy) on the road. In Worcester (MA), a stop at Dalat Restaurant and a bowl of hu tieu nam vang, per the server’s recommendation. The menu promises a variety of…

In St. Petersburg: Bun Bo Hue at Pho 97

Still on the road, and still in search of something decent to eat in a hurry. Pho is almost always the answer. I head to Ben Tranh, but it’s become Taste of Asia and the sign advertises Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese fare. Hmm. I think…

Szechuan Noodle Bowl’s Bowls of Noodles

Szechuan Noodle Bowl is one of those enduring little places that I love in the International District. When Green Leaf (one of my recent Top 5 Asian Restaurant picks) would be too crowded, I always knew I could go next door for some decent noodles.…

Dishin’: Psycho (Pho) Cyclo

In explaining its name, Pho Cyclo tells us that “the cyclo drivers are the eyes and ears of the local street scene” who can “point you to where you can always get a delicious meal at a great price.” Seattlest can now tell you about…

Dishin’: Shao Bing at Shi’An

We normally run from a restaurant that’s advertised as Chinese and American. Common sense, but it also dates back to a day in New Hampshire when we walked into “Judy’s (or whatever her name was) Chinese Restaurant” and were given dinner rolls and butter along…

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…

Dishin’: Roamin’ for Ramen

We’re crazy about ramen. It might go back to Tampopo, the 1985 “Noodle Western” centered around a ramen shop, with its memorable raw egg and saliva swapping scene. While that movie glamorized the noodles for us, we’d never been to a real ramen shop, instead…

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…

Mi Quang at Lemongrass

Last week, recall, I went to Sichuanese Cuisine at my favorite food corner in Seattle (12th and Jackson, in Little Saigon). This week I decided to venture to the shopping center diagonally across the street for a quick lunch at Lemongrass. When I think quick,…
