Comprehensive list of best Pike Place stall food.

There are good sitdown restaurants in pike Place Market, but the the foodie soul of the market is the standup food stalls . I realize that some are sort of hybrid, so lets be loose with the definitions.

I want your favorite stalls, and the best things to order there.

Let me start:

Uli's, the Merguez on a baguette with mustard.

Three Girls: Reuben on light rye.

What are your faves?

    1. re: not the bad Steve

      Every sandwich I've ever had from ILNY Deli has been better than any sandwich I've ever had from 3 Girls.

      Svedala Bakery is a treasure - holy moly, their princess cake is incredible. Anything they make with marzipan is terrific (they make their own marzipan!)

      I like the pate casse-croute from Le Painier.

      Meat and cheese piroshky from Piroshky Piroshky

      Yes, Uli's merguez on a roll, also the thuringer sausage.

      1. re: terrier

        Piroshky Piroshky is quite possibly the best thing in the market.

          I disagree, I like Cafe Yarmarka's piroshky much better. I remember one at PP tasting like it used pre-frozen grated potato inside. Cafe Yarmarka is tucked away in a spot behind Post Alley.

            I will certainly check it out next time I am in town.

    2. I'm a diehard fan of the Mee Sum pastry Chinese bakery--try the curried beef humbao.

        Keeping meat filled bun theme... Beef and cheese Piroski at Piroshky-Piroshky

        Also, this is a great topic! I'll have visitors here during the summer and this is a good way to see what's hidden in Pike's Place.

            Absolutely the Scallop chowder. El Puerco Lloron is definitely up there, Although the stall/ sit down definition is questionable .

          2. Meatloaf sandwich at 3 Girls

            Salmon sandwich at Market Grill

              I always enjoy the cashews from the nut vendor across from I love NY Deli.
