鼎泰豐 Din Tai Fung Restaurant
700 Bellevue Way Northeast #280, Bellevue, WA 98004
This place is the real deal Holyfield. I love Din Tai Fung and glad that they chose Seattle (Bellevue) as their 2nd US location. My moms was kind enough to take the fam out to Din Tai Fun for my bday. Since my mom only eats asian food, she makes the decisions where to roll.

Words cannot express how much I love DTF……. xiao long bao (soup dumplings) and spicy wontons that is! I usually order two different kinds of soup dumplings, the pork and then the chicken & truffle. Also it’s a must to get two orders of spicy wontons as they could be Seattle’s best wontons. Balance the meal with some chinese broccoli and green beans. Instead of rice, it’s rice cakes with prawns. And you can’t have asian food without noodles, so you have to go with the spicy noodles and the noodles with meat sauce.

If there’s room, the shave ice desert with fruit and red bean hits. DTF is loaded with goodness, flavors, freshness, and quality. The downside are the lines and the $$$ status, so definitely not an everyday thing. DTF holds it down and I consider it a treat each time I visit. To note they have beer on asian beer on draft.

Revel
403 North 36th Street, Seattle, WA 98103
Hands down Revel is one of my favorite Seattle restaurants. It serves a korean urban inspired cuisine that is done with a modern touch. Also you can see influences in their dishes from all of asian flavors. My favorites are the short rib dumplings, mussel pancakes with pickled coconut, argula corned lamb salad with fish sauce (spicy), dungeness crab with seaweed noodle, oxtail ragout noodle, and the earl grey truffle dessert (all shown above). It has an industrial modern setting that is complimented by hip pop art, which in all promotes a fine social experience. For busy dinner nights, hop into Quoin next door for cocktails.

We went to the Brooklyn to celebrate an event since Elliots oyster house was jammed back. Maybe we should've waited at Elliots because the Brooklyn experience was terrible... The service was awful, the food was mediocre with poorly executed dishes. HH is a frenzy where all the customers are acting like wolves for tables and don't care if your waiting. The staff doesn't control this and let's this be. I guess this is a tourist trap. The service staff and waiters didnt sync up. Service was watching golf and gave mean looks when you asked them for a napkin or plate. I felt the waitress was rushing order and appeared overwhelmed. There are too many good restaurants in Seattle, you can pass this up.

The McCrackens have got this place Cracken! The space is infused with decadence, exquisiteness and tons of character in each detail, this ought to be one of the most beautiful dining experiences in Seattle. The service is pretty top notch and knowledgeable. Very welcoming to conversation about the place, chefs (including the top chef contestants), and of course the food. The food is really good, clean, and detailed. Went here for brunch and had the King Crab, the hash, and the chips w/truffle (see pics). All were delicious and quite the experience to make it even a better time. The cooking technique was modern, innovative and progressive. I can't wait to go for dinner.

This is a go to spot for me... cause I go here periodically... haha...U gotta banh me here. The grilled pork for $3 is the best flavors for your buck in Seattle. The tofu and bbq sandwiches are good options too at $2.50. Newbies, watch out for the jalapeno it will get u.Also, gotta do the Goi Cuon (fresh spring rolls). My faves are the chinese saugage and egg which comes in the 3 pack, and the traditional shrimp and pork. CRACKIN. the shredded pork one is kind of weak with the fish sauce, but everything cant be good.Then I get a pork ball stick (nem noung), which is a vietnamese meatball but with constructed like sausage, u will know what I'm talking about. Also, ba loc lot the beef wrapped in mint leaves (i think). Awesomeness!Deserts are solid the che at $1 something but better at Tammy's. I been going to Saigon deli since the late 90s as a kid. Love this place, reminds me of running around in Saigon but with less chaos. Everyone is pretty nice and very american friendly. FYI, no tables to eat inside..u just have to make due.

The spicy chicken wings here shut the fried chicken game down! I took a friend’s tip and damnnnnnn did it pan out. These wings are spicy, garlicy, a lil salt, and some jalapenos. Excellet with rice. A freakin deal at $6. Each order comes with about 9-10, depending on your appetite more could be recommended. I also usually get the Singapore noodles (bbq pork) cause of my love for curry (good but not the best). This is definitely a top 5 fried chicken spot in Seattle and the #1 fried chicken Chinatown.

One of the hippest dining spots located in the centralist portion of Seattle’s Capitol Hill. The Tin Table is an excellent social setting for a good time. The backdrop is urban industrial with a hint of coziness. The crowd is hoppin, mixed with the hipsters and the dinner partiers. The service is top notch and kind. The food at Tin Table is pretty good. The menu is New American and choices range from casual to sophisticated. I enjoyed the halibut, short rib, and rabit ragu (swagu). Chickpea fritters are amazing and opt in for cheese tots. Desserts were done nicely, biegnets, a giant smore with a pie, and the parfait like dish. To add, they also of have good cocktails though I don’t remember since I had comsumed them quickly.

The Monsoon Seattle brunch is quite a luxurious Vietnamese dining experience. The ingredients are high quality and cooking techniques carefully executed. I love when places look want to advance Vietnamese cuisine. The Oxtail pho was pretty good, fresh, and soothing for cold days. The pork belly banh xeo was cooked to perfection and the pork belly was very succulent, though I wish they had the greenleaf lettuce for wrapping. Monsoon has a higher price tag than other Vietnamese restaurants, but in exchange you get an esquisite dining experience with nicely curated Vietnamese food.

You will definitely appease your hunger at Hunger. I had the craziest craving for Paella, and I finally found it at Hunger (via Yelp). Oh man! the seafood Paella was overwhelming with freshness and flavor. Each bite was joyful and gives you hints of Spain. As you could see by the pictures, Hunger uses high quality components to make their awesome dishes. The prosciutto arugula salad with a poached egg was also a good dish to compliment the Paella. The cooking here is progressive and Hunger does a good job articulating modern spanish food. Can’t wait to check out their new space.
