When it’s rainy and/or gray outside, few things hit the spot so perfectly as a steaming bowl of flavorful noodles! There are some pretty notable spots around town that serve a legitimately slurp-worthy bowl of noodles and other goodies - check them out...


Ba Bar | 550 12th Avenue | 206-328-2030

If you’ve never tried the simple, freshly made Southeast Asian street food at Ba Bar, you’re missing out! Ba Bar’s Phở dishes are pretty delicious, with three different options of meat (beef brisket and round eye, oxtail and round eye steak, or chicken and a soft-boiled egg). There’s also Bún Bò Huế and Mì Vịt Tiềm for additional yummy noodle bowls. All are available for lunch and dinner.


Gourmet Noodle Bowl | 707 8th Avenue S | 206-264-8899

Gourmet Noodle Bowl has a long list of Taiwanese-style noodle soups to choose from, including traditional noodle soups, wonton and dumpling soups, rice noodle soups, and more. The Shrimp Wonton and Braised Beef Noodle Soup is a particular favorite.


Noi Thai | 1303 1st Avenue | 206-787-8444

High quality, authentic Thai cuisine is found at Noi Thai, with familiar favorites and specialty dishes that are expertly prepared and presented. The noodle soups are no exception! From the most famous Northern Thai dish Coconut Curry Noodle Soup (Khao Soi), to the old Thai favorite Clay Pot Shrimp & Glass Noodles (Koong Ob Woonsen), you’ll find a flavorful, slurp-worthy Thai noodle soup at Noi Thai.


Siam Thai Restaurant | 1629 Eastlake Avenue E | 206-322-6174

Classic Thai noodle soups such as Drunken Noodles (Pad kee Maow) and Pad See Eew are exceptionally delicious at Siam Thai Restaurant! They are rich in flavor and full of quality ingredients, with a beautiful and colorful presentation. The Siam Special Noodles is also quite yummy.


Soi | 1400 10th Avenue | 206-556-4853

Take a step away from the common Thai dishes like Phad Thai, and instead, explore the cuisine of the Northeastern region of Thailand, called Issan. Their noodle bowl is on the ‘Drinking Food’ section of the menu (Jaan Duum), the Victory Monument Noodles. Egg noodles are tossed with BBQ pork, spinach, and bean sprouts in a soy sauce broth with garlic and cilantro sprinkled on top.
