I'm visiting these areas in two weeks and would love some recommendations. I'm looking for local hang outs. Doesn't have to be expensive. Just good food and great local spots. I love diversity.. So ethnic restaurants are a plus as well..

Thank you!

Portage Bay Cafe always been a hit with our guests.

As a family, we love going over to Yea's Wok and Tapatio's, both in the Newcastle area (Bellevue). Also Papaya in Renton.

Since you mentioned a family, maybe on a weekend y'all can head on over to CrossRoads mall, they have a nice food court over there with a lot of ethnic food offerings. Just stay away from the pizza place, I've very... unimpressed with it, almost on the same level as Chuck E. Cheese's pizza.

Bellevue- Taj Palace. I haven't been there for dinner, but the Indian lunch buffet is terrific.
Bellevue- Meditteranean Kitchen. You will leave the place smelling like garlic. If you don't like garlic, go somewhere else.
Bellevue-Novilhos Brazilian- Waiters come to your table with a succession of grilled meats. It's a buffet, but it's all brought to your table, one meat at a time.
Seattle- Flying Squirrel Pizza- There are three locations, but the Seward Park location is the best. Seward Park itself is a park, not a restaurant. It's a beautiful park, and you might need to walk there to burn off those calories from all those restaurants.

Wow, I've been here 5 years and I have never been to nor heard of any of those places.

And I still don't know where Phinney Ridge is....

Dear Azoria, Not to worry. I have crazy old
Addiction to remote travel around the globe
so seek out a little dose of it through ethnic
Food whenever I can. Just like people
Think I am a bit strange that I have lived
With an Amazon tribe alone or trekked
In the middle of nowhere west Madagascar, a
Fun way of eating (by the way I think
Seattle is great for this) is to find little
Hole in the walls in Seattle that serve amazing food.
These places are rarely beautiful inside, made
Up for by most excellent food and usually
Filled with the people of that culture if you
Will. I guess you could say that for me it
Is the food but also the ability to transport my
Mind to another culture for that period of
Time. I have loads of other even more hole
In the wall places buy I'll spare you.

Btw, Phinney Ridge is the ridge to the west
Of Greenlake, north of the zoo on the way
To Ballard.

three places I ALWAYS visit when I am in Seattle:

Serious Pie (best pizza joint in America, in my opinion) - absolutely a must visit, you WILL thank me later.
Pike Place Chowder (self explanatory).
Beecher's Cheese (@ Pike as well) - damn good cheeses, paninis, mac & cheese, you name it.
