Seattle is a great town for Pho, a wonderful Vietnamese soup with rice noodles and a terrific beef broth. This one I had downtown on 3rd at Cafe Pho and it was very good and affordable. I love this soup because it is filling but not heavy or fatty like most American food. The bun at the bottom was purchased at Sun Bakery in Chinatown and despite the cheap cheese used it was excellent! The dough was sweet and just slightly salty, think ephemerally light cheese pretzel, the big soft doughy kind. I was lucky to get three buns right out of the oven as I showed up at 11 for an early lunch (my breakfast). Not shown are the BBQ pork and curry beef buns I also eagerly consumed.
If anyone out there knows about the Seattle food scene, please drop me a line about any favorite places I should visit. I love affordable ethnic places and the more creative of the high end type restaurants. I'm also looking for foodie dining buddies so let me know!
