Trippy Seattle - Restaurants
So you wanna eat sumptin good? There are zillions of good restaurants in Seattle, of which I'll just have some fun and name a handful. These are some of my favorites (Thai and Indian always figure largely), but really it would be too easy to go on and on (for example, I don't even mention breakfast places like The Dish - oops, I just did!):
- MEXICAN: Agua Verde - modern Mexican on Boat Street in the U District. In Ballard, try La Carta De Oaxaca. All over the city, look for the TRUCKS that park at the side of the road with mobile Mexican food.
- GERMAN: Szmania's - fine dining in Magnolia notable for having the best (few) authentic German dishes in town.
- FRENCH: Coming soon as I scratch me head and do some thinkin'. Numerous good ones, generally spendy as you might expect.
- THAI: Tup Tim Thai on Mercer in Lower Queen Anne - try the Garlic and Phad Thai dishes. Mae Phim - a block north of Pioneer Square, next to the Irish pub. It's good and very fast, perfect if you are bumbling about with yer tourism on a weekday in Pioneer Square. Don't let the long lunch lines discourage you - they MOVE! Lower Queen Anne has a cluster of perhaps half a dozen good Thai places.
- VIETNAMESE: Tamarind Tree - Viet Namese food near the International District. Green Leaf Cafe - Viet Namese food near the International District. Pho places perhaps too many to mention.
- INDIAN: Chutney's on 1st Ave. N. in Lower Queen Anne or on 45th in Wallingford - try the Tikka Masala and Saag Paneer, plus garlic naan. Bengal Tiger in Ravenna - my favorite. Bombay Grill on 47th & Roosevelt in the University District - longstanding great Seattle Indian food.
- BAR-B-QUE: Dixie's BBQ - Okay, this is random. Set in a garage, eat some Leeeesiana BBQ on a carlift. But it's the floor show with The Man (hottest stuff known to man) that makes this a must. Under I-405 where Hwy 520 hits it, Eastside.
