Pestle Rock is doing Thai food differently than everyone else in Seattle. The dishes here are from the Northeast “Isan” region of Thailand, so this is where you come to try something new (like crispy marinated chicken wings coated in Thai chili, and lemony noodles with garlic-steamed pork belly). Take into account the super-friendly staff and cozy, red-brick-covered room, and you might never want to order delivery pad Thai again.

You know Paseo, but Un Bien is where you want to be. It’s where the old owners work now, and the Caribbean sandwiches in Ballard are the city’s best.
