I just recently moved to Seattle (Capitol Hill to be specific) and I'm looking for the best spots to grab some cheap food.
Anything goes, really. It just has to be good and as inexpensive as possible.
What do you got for me, Chowhounders?
Hot Mammas Pizza on Pine
Honey Hole Sandwiches on Pike
Six Arms on Pike or The Delux on Broadway for pub food - both have happy hour specials
Pho Cyclo on Broadway or Ballet on Pike
Jamjuree on 15th for Thai - have good lunch specials
Cafe Presse on 12th
Check out the ID..tons of inexepnsive options there. You can get a Bahn Mi for under $3.00 most places. I recommend the Saigon Deli or Seattle Deli. Also chceck out the Uwajimaya Village Food Court.
Bimbo's Bitchen Burritos is great for huge portions of cheap, tasty Mexican...a little bit off Capitol Hill, at 12th and Jackson, Malay Satay Hut has great Malaysian food for cheap, esp. the big steaming bowls of Pho soup
I'm right there with you on the cheap eats. I'm a Capitol Hill gal and here are my recs:
Bimbo's Cantina - aka, Bimbo's Bitchen Burritos. The Cha Cha Lounge is below.
Cafe Presse - a more expansive menu yet moderately priced then its elder counterpart in Belltown, Le Pichet. Serve food till 1:30 am-ish and open early for breakfast.
Fish Fry - nestled between Moe Bar and Neumos which is a live music venue.
ART GALLERY + BAR
JAPANESE - modern
Boom Noodle - younger counterpart of Blue C Sushi, nice prices for small plates.
JAPANESE - sushi
Quinn's for lunch, same owners as Restaurant Zoe. Try their poutine.
Smith's on 15th Avenue...lambshank for $12? Yes! And they have great sweet potato fries.
Kim Chee Bistro - great for a quick fix if you want to forgo the long drive north/south.
La Spiga - if you want to splurge over $10, try their truffled pasta. Simple and amazing.
....if you wander down to the International District...
