Seattle - Food place to take a Austrailian student

I need recommendations to take Austrailian exchange student, for a weeknight meal. She hates pizza and green vegtables and tomatoes, less lettuce and tomato sauce (ketchsup). I think she has had a few burgers and works in a chinese restaurant at home. I am giving this post a shot for some ideas. Thanks.

  1. There's a couple different places:

    Tapas: Ocho in Ballard
    Pub Grub: Hales in Ballard, Elysian in Capital Hill, or Brouwers in Fremont
    Mexican(ish?): Peso's in lower Queen Anne.

    Hope that helps!

    1. The Palace Kitchen is where I take all of my out-of-town guests, with great success.

      1. La Carta de Oaxaca, la Isla, Thai Ku- in Ballard

        Brad's Swingside, Kawnjai Thai, The Roxy- Fremont

        Others- Steelhead Diner, Tamarind Tree, Pho Cyclo, Broadway Grill, Cafe Presse, Ristorante Machivelli (sp?), Fish & Chips at Ivar's

        1. take a stroll down "the ave" so as to surround yourselves in the student vibe and let her choose from amongst the amazing variety of eateries there.
