Red Bowls

My new favorite lunch spot. I almost wish my job didn't feed us so often, because then I could have more Red Bowls. The place is fantastic.

It's Japanese/Korean fusion, or something. I don't know. I do know that it's a great place to get a unfried fish dish for lunch when you're in downtown/pioneer square. It's also a great place to get an uncooked fish dish. One of my favorite things is the Spicy (raw) Salmon Bowl. Don't worry, they have cooked fish, foul and mammals as well.

I'm also a huge fan of udon, which they have in abundance. And it's good.

The place is tiny, but the proprietors are really friendly and helpful. Service is fast. I can't wait until I'm free for lunch again.

Piroshky Piroshky

Don't hate it because it's popular. You should love Piroshky Piroshky, because it's tasty. Albeit in a greasy sort of way.

Oh, and you're in Seattle, right. So you should try the salmon pate one. Which incidentally is shaped like a salmon.

Smoked Salmon Pate Looks like a Salmon, tastes like a Salmon, which is good.

Of course, they have all kinds of stuff. Sweet, meaty savory, and vegetarian savory. Check the menu.

It's down at the market, so watch out for tourists. Actually, now (January) is a great time to go. The line is only about 5 or 10 people.
