I had the pleasure of living in the beautiful city of Seattle, Washington for 2 years, and in my time there I had some AMAZING food! Here’s a list of my favorite local places to eat during my time there.
Tammy’s Deli and Bakery
Tammy’s offers a wide selection of Vietnamese meals and fresh boboa teas/smoothies. Home to the best Bahn Mi’s (Vietnamese sandwich) in town. Their prices are very affordable, and products are consistent. They make their bread fresh each morning, so I recommend going by 2 pm or earlier for the best selection.
Geraldine’s Counter Restaurant
Open 7 days a week from 10-3 pm. Geraldine’s is known for its hearty breakfast and lunch comfort foods served in a diner-style environment. This is a small family-owned restaurant with the most delicious French toast and pancakes. Breakfast toppings are home-made jelly’s and jams that change throughout the week depending on which fresh local fruits are delivered to them. Though breakfast is usually my go-to option here, they offer some great lunch options as well, I’ve tried the chicken pot pie and fish n chips, both are absolutely delicious.
THE BEST cheesesteaks in town, hands down! They only serve cheesesteaks, chips, and bottled drinks. Understandably so, they have perfected this sandwich. They give you a hearty amount of steak on a freshly toasted hoagie. My go-to is “the Donnie” with provolone and a side of cherry peppers, costing about $11. You absolutely get what you pay for, these are large and flavorful sandwiches.
Pegasus Pizza & Pasta
This pizzeria offers a beautiful view of Alki beach with indoor and outdoor dining options. Pegasus offers a pizza you will not forget. The pizza crust is buttery yet crispy and is cooked to a perfect thickness throughout with no doughy taste. perfect place for a relaxed evening date. /its close proximity allows you to cross the street and enjoy a nice walk along the beach after.
Pho 99 Vietnamese Noodle House
The one-stop-shop for all your favorite Vietnamese cuisine. Pho 99 has some of the best noodle soup I’ve had in Seattle. If you’re a fan of pho, then you know the perfect broth makes or breaks the dish. Their dishes are always made fresh and full of flavor. My go-to orders include: beef stew with bun, beef pho, spring rolls, and passion fruit or jackfruit smoothie with tapioca peals 😉 The food is always consistent, and the service is the cherry on top!
