Large group with kids in the ID

Two families—four grown-ups, six kids ages 2-10—are coming to visit my family. For their first meal in Seattle, I want to take them to an early dinner in the International District.

1. They will eat anything.

2. They keep Passover, which starts Monday, so anything they won't be able to eat later in the trip is good to have this weekend. For example, they will eat rice and therefore rice noodles, so we can save Vietnamese for later.

3. They come from D.C., which has decent but not great Asian food.

4. Nighttime cart dim sum would be great—does it exist?

  1. Just to clarify, do you mean that during passover they don't eat anything that contains barley, wheat, rye, oats, and spelt, and is not cooked within 18 minutes after coming in contact with water? And no leavening at all, right? What about corn, peanuts, and legumes?

    (I'm getting this info online, since I didn't know what you meant by "keep Passover")

    1. re: Brunhilde

      Sorry. Actually there's a huge range of what people will and won't eat (depending on ethnic background, level of religious observation, etc). This particular group won't eat wheat, bread, pasta, beer, cake. But they will eat rice.
