Are you visiting Seattle and craving Asian food? Are you wondering which places are the best?
Don’t worry, I got this. Let me share with you a short list of places where you can find some of the best Asian food available in Seattle. I’m adding the yelp review links for each restaurant so you can check these out and make your own choice.
I want to start this post, by giving credit to the incredible Asian-foodie that helped me put together this list – Xiangyu Gu. He is originally from Beijing, China – and has been living in the area for many years. He took on the “difficult” job of trying out almost every single Asian restaurant in the city in order to satisfy his homesick cravings.
