Lunches near Downtown Bellevue
Well, it's been about a year since anyone's done the "Lunch in Bellevue" post, so I thought I'd take a crack at it.
Anyone have any new (or old) favorites in the downtown Bellevue area? Or anything fun and unique?
My current favorites are anything at Chantanee, whatever the lunch special is at Ginza, the pulled (more like chopped) pork sandwich combo with BBQ beans at 3 Little Pigs, and Gyros at the place across from Mediterranean Kitchen.
I've been disappointed by Sea Garden (it's good, but surprisingly pricey for Dim Sum), Moghul Palace (solid, but limited selection), and Casa D's (meh).
i like sushi-yama. it's conveyor belt sushi, with unlimited miso soup and green tea. they have some really interesting combinations and also some non-sushi items like tempura fried vegetables, gyoza, and edamame.
My favorite egg salad sandwich is at Gilbert's on Main. They've also got a pretty good Tomato Florentine soup that I normally wouldn't have tried but they just gave it to me as a throw in one day. My only beef is at how pricy this place is.
I actually like the Tap House. The menu is vast (something for everyone--even the pickiest eaters), and most dishes are surprisingly good. The ahi tuna, seafood jambalaya pasta and fish tacos are my favorite. I guess I like their seafood. However, their sushi sucks. Also, it's on the passport/prime card. Hard to beat that.
Other favorites are the Pumphouse for burgers. What the Pho (self explanatory). Flo for bento box (they have many options, which is nice). Cafe Ori over by Ross.
Have to agree with Chantanee, although it's been a while since I've been.
