Comfort food in diverse Seattle means noodles, bobbing in deep bowls of aromatic pho, sharing space with fatty slices of pork in ramen, or sauced with a hearty Bolognese in ropes of fresh pasta. For pho, indulge in the steaming-hot noodle soup from time-tested Phở Bắc Sup Shop (1240 S Jackson St). Venture to Capitol Hill’s Ooink (1416 Harvard Ave) for rich pork bone-broth ramen and gyoza, or try Fremont’s Kamonegi (1054 N 39th St) for rave-worthy handmade soba noodles paired with duck breast and tempura.
Got a Southern-fried craving? Dig into a Fried Catfish Po’Mi—a cross between a New Orleans po’boy and a Saigon bahn mi—at newcomer Communion (2350 E Union St). Ballard’s Biscuit and Bean (5905 15th Ave NW), housed in a cozy trailer, is another must for towering biscuit sandwiches like the Classic, topped with bacon, Beecher’s cheese, an egg, and tomato jam. And Tom Douglas hosts a Serious Biscuit Brunch (*5118 14th Ave NW) each weekend in Ballard, serving up such delights as a house-made buttermilk biscuit topped with fried chicken and a black pepper gravy with a bit of a kick.
If you’d rather your fried chicken come with a heavy dose of spice, try the tongue-scorching Nashville-style hot chicken at Sisters and Brothers (544 Elliott Ave W). Pieces are served over slices of white bread in a classic red basket.
