Delivery near University of Washington?

littlemissbusiness Mar 18, 2008 01:28 PM

Looking for good delivery joints near the University of Washington. I just found out that the hotel I'm staying at (Watertown) doesn't have food service, and occasionally I'm an "eat in" girl. Any ideas? No greasy chinese or same-ol' pizza, please. Anything interesting? late night and/or 24 hours a +++.

    This is a second vote for Black Pearl. (I usually order from their North Seattle location, so I'm assuming the standards/quality are equal.) It's not life-changing Chinese food, but it's decent. Bombay Grill just up the street from the Watertown (http://www.yelp.com/biz/bombay-grill-...) is also decent. Order the special nan; it's like a Pop Tart for grownups. Buon appetito!

      There is a fantastic restaurant less than 1 block south of Watertown called the Portage Bay Cafe that serves high quality, organic, healthy food. You can get an order to-go and walk it back to the Watertown.

        I second that recommendation: http://www.portagebaycafe.com/menu.html

        It's heavy on breakfast, but they serve it all day long. They have salads, burgers, and sandwiches too. I think I've had the reuben about...ooooh...1000 times. :)

        You might call Trattoria Roma, at 47th and Aurora. I do not see their delivery radius on their website, but the UW is just 2-3 miles and you may qualify. Check out their website.

          You can try the Black Pearl---they deliver Chinese. It is not fancy and it pretty Americanized but it is solid and tends to have some pretty healthy food choices instead of grease

            A few of the Thai places around there deliver.
            That would probably be your best bet.

            I know Appe Thai delivers, I like some of their stuff, and I think Djan's does as well with a minimum order.

              Seattle in general has major issues with delivery. There's very little of it and what there is isn't worth the trouble (giant generalization, but it holds).

                Afraid not. I'm just down the street from you and have given up entirely on delivery for anything other than pizza. I like Pagliacci pizza (order light sauce, well done crust), I hear Romio's is great pizza too, but haven't tried them yet. Avoid just about every Asian takeout place nearby. :D
