I can make some suggestions in Seattle! Across the street from Swedish
Memorial (On Broadway) is a wonderful little place called YaSukos, it is a
fabulous Vietnamese place, and very popular among the locals. Also there is
a nice Italian Deli called Torinos on Madison ( at first hill). A great
Southwestern place called Cactus is also on Madison down at Lake Washington
that I really enjoyed! An absolute gem of a restaurant is called McSorleys
and you guessed it, it is also on Madison but this place is way down by the
waterfront. This place is packed at lunch, that's how I found it. The best
inexpensive lunch in all of Seattle including fresh made bread, fresh
lemonade, cakes, soups and all for around 3 bucks.
Then there is the all the wonderful, mouthwatering ethnic restaurants the
line the street that parallels Pikes Market..........
Hard describing this as I am on a diet!
Well sally all my places lean toward the funky, you know me :)
Better stop now, hungry!
