Best Dinner Place for less than $15

Ok with the economy the way it is people are looking for a palce that doesn't kill their pocketbook. There are alot of hidden places that unless the are right near you that others do not know about. List places around Washington that you can get a good meal. Not just burgers ETC real sit down complete meal for less than $15 So a couple could eat for $30

  1. Pizza Bank in Kirkland. Great pasta dishes - especially their lasagne. Chicken Parmesan is also terrific and the price is right!

    1. You could also try hitting the many fine restos with half price apps during HH. You can make a pretty good meal out of them and not pay a small fortune!

      1. When I think of good and cheap eats, Wonton City always comes to mind. You can get 2 piping hot bowls of wonton noodles and a couple of chinese donuts for about $15. If you want to really splurge, you could add one of the dry noodle dishes - I'd recommend the brisket.

          Just tonight, as so many nights before, we grabbed take-out from Paseo, on Fremont.
          Tonight, it was Cuban Roast and chicken-thigh dinners. This is soo much food for about $25.
          We are lucky to live blocks away.

        2. Go Chinese. Cafe Ori in Bellevue. Hing Loon in Seattle. Mmm... But don't go looking for ambiance at either. Just consistently good food.

          I wish I lived near Paseo. Yum.

              All fine restaurants, but I feel like many fall out of the price range unless you're just getting apps.

              I'll throw up Cafe Presse (Croque Monsieur, a glass of wine and maybe even some rillettes to share if that $30 doesn't include tax and tip), Hurachitos (various tacos or maybe one of their tortas or soups), and any of the Ethiopian places around (I like Dahlak and Meskel, but there are plenty of others)
