Cough up your favorite 3 sleeper restaurants. These are places that you don't see anybody talking about but you really enjoy. I''m calling out a few of you that eat out a lot....Leper, Howard (you need to bang out your top 5)!

La Rustica

This should be good~!

    Um, that's pretty much it. Most of my other haunts are frequently mentioned here, but that's my own damn fault a lot of the time.

      Damn fuzzy...you're just going to get down to brass tacks like that?

      Spice Route (indian, bellevue)
      Padi (indo, U. Dist.)
      Saigon Vietnam Deli (bahn mi, eye dee)

      p.s. terrier, you jogged my memory on aoki's name in an old "cheap sushi, help me please" post a while back. I gotta get back there.

            Fuzzyboy, can you give details on your three? I haven't heard of any of them.

              I've tried to find contact info-ie address-for Vieng Thong but couldn't. Where exactly is it?

                It is on MLK way a couple of blocks north of where it intersects with Rainier Ave. South in a little mini-mall on the east side of the road.

                La Rustica is a cool little italian restaurant in West Seattle, just off Alki. Food can be a bit salty, but it's a cool, tiny place.

                Andaulca is more upscale and is in the Mayflower hotel in downtown.

                Marjorie is an ecletic place in Belltown. It's a little more off the beaten path.
