All-Star Tour of Asia - Szechuan Noodle Bowl

Rhonda, your STF event organizer has moved to the heart of the International District near Hing Hay park. Of course, it is to get closer to all my favorite places in the ID, especially Maneki…..how I love their black cod collar miso. Brian, a STF member and I took a trip throughout the ID several weeks ago. We walked around and stopped in at several restaurants, talked to owners, reviewed menus and figured out how many members we could shove in their restaurant. They are ready for us! WARNING, these are mostly CASH places, small and cramp (hole-in-the-wall), and laid back. You may have to wait a longer time for your food or chase down a server or two. No promises here! No reservations! Most places will hold 8 people at one table.
We will begin an “All-Star Tour of Asia”, once a week on Sunday afternoons, we will meet up FIRST at a historical site that forged the International District, then walk to our restaurant. Our first tour will start earlier in the day and will include visits to several places in the district, one being the Wing Luke Asian Museum before we walk over to our restaurant. During this tour, we will have a scavenger hunt at Uwajimaya, walks around the neighborhood visiting monuments, historical places, and one of my favorites… pick up a few boxes of take-out and head over to the beautiful urban gardens; towards the end of the tour.
The spicy pork dumplings is my favorite. Cheap and comfortable, the ladies are really nice, you can watch someone making dumplings on a back table, decor from 1980's, this place is just perfect

    Hi Foodie, this week, we will meet on the corner of S. Jackson and 6th Avenue and continue our tour of the ID starting north on 6th Avenue S. It is a steep ascent north on 6th Avenue S that leads you past the classical wooden facade of the former Main Street School Annex, built in 1910 to serve the area's burgeoning Japan Town. The nearby NP Hotel (1914) and Panama Hotel (1910), around the corner on S Main Street were also major centers for Seattle's Japanese Community.

      The Danny Woo International District Community Garden on the north side of S Main Street is one of Seattle's more elaborate "P-Patches." Ascending its winding stairs will lead you to Kobe Terrace Park. It was designed by William Teufel and dedicated in 1975 to honor Seattle's first Sister City, whose residents donated the large Yuki Modoro "snow viewing lantern."
      The Nippon Kan ("Japanese Hall") stands at the head of S Washington Street in the original Astor Hotel. This was built in 1909 and designed by the father-son team of Charles and Bennet Thompson, who designed many other International District structures. It was rehabilitated in 1978 and hosts many performances and community events.
