Wann Yen is our #1 choice in the U District for a quick, healthy solo meal. The food menu is a condensed version of what you’d see at other Thai places in town, but we love the khao mun gai, which is poached chicken served over coconut rice with a side of broth and garlicky hot sauce. Give us that and an iced rose milk tea (they make the best in the neighborhood), and we’re set.
