Ba BarThis Capitol Hill favorite recently expanded into South Lake Union and the University Village. At each outpost, Chef Eric Banh brings the street food of his childhood in Saigon to Amazon's sprawling tech campus. So expect vermicelli bowls and Vietnamese noodle soups, plus spectacular house-made sweets. Small plates range from spinach-tofu paper wraps to fried yellow-curried frog legs, while the house specials include bánh nậm: banana-leaf-wrapped rice tamales with Carlton Farms pork. But return to the original Ba Bar in Capitol Hill for the mini-chain's crowning glory: a late-night happy hour with discounted IPAs and frites with pho gravy. No reservations.
