Over here, is one of the best places to get ahold of com tam bi suong cha (or variations of it, rice with barbecue pork, eggcake, bi or pork noodles, and fish sauce). You can get the full combo which contains shrimp and meatballs. Although I do find the fish sauce that they use a bit strong, which is why I never use all of it. The place is quite small, so it might be full on weekends. A lot of Americans eat there too, and it won't cost more than $7 for a meal (which is quite good for the money). You should try it if you like vietnamese cuisine!
Right here, is one of the best place to eat egg noodles. Their #1 item is Mi La Cay Dac Biet. In the soup, it contains broth with green onions, pork, drumstick, and of course, egg noodles. It is so darn good! I would eat it all the time if I could drive down there. It costs about the same as Pho (vietnamese noodle soup), which is about $4.25 ish. The soup goes really well with the Chinese Donuts (in appetizers), although not meant for it. But really... if you are into vietnamese cuisine, visit here!
Inside, its pretty darn big. They have a produce section, a seafood section, and the other stuff you'd need for asian food. Although a bit more expensive than its competitors, it houses a wider selection of food you can buy. Also, near the side are a few video game machines, which I used to play when I was really young. Oh man were they fun! If you want to try and shop here, you'd more than likely save a bit of money rather than going to national/regional places like Safeway.
This is my recommended place to get one of the best vietnamese sandwiches ever! Over there, they have different varieties, such as barbecued pork (thit nuong), meatball (xiu mai?), pork (thit), ga (chicken), and other things such as pastries. They also sell candies soda, and mmm, meatballs on a stick too. It's located near Viet Wah if you go by it, and I always go there to buy my banh mi if I am hungry.
Well, they've made the mall bigger after a couple of years. So now, there are places like Toys R Us, Bon Macy, Rite Aid, and other stores. Inside, you can go to the food court and try the vast varieties of food such as Panda Express or Orange Julius. Although smaller than the neighboring malls, it sure is a great places for people to visit, including locals that live near there. The Best Buy and Target there is in one building, and it is different than what you would usually see, since they are stacked up upon each other.
They charge $20 for a stringing service for tennis, which isn't really bad at all (if you don't have your own stringing machine). They actually are quite helpful, and also have different items for sports such as skis, and they also have a skiing program there too. They also have a good selection of shoes too. A very nice place to go to as an alternative for Avanti Sports.
I bought my first professional racket there, and I've always went to them for stringing (which costs around $18 per stringing + tax). They were always great, until they broke my strings, which they replaced with one of their own. They charge a bit high for strings, but if they break their own strings, they will replace them free of charge. It's located at the end of Sand point, but it is a very nice and clean shop. But still I would go to them for something like their Summer Camp for tennis. The owner is always there, and is very nice in helping you. There are only a few tennis places in a metropolitan like Seattle, and this is one of the best. If you're into tennis, go here.
PROS: Good service.
CONS: Somewhat high prices
Here, different festivals occur, such as the "Bite of Seattle," with several other festivals. At the Bite of Seattle, you can get different foods, which are really good. Here, you can experience diverse people having fun. Over in Seattle Center, there are buildings that house the Seattle SuperSonics (key Arena), along with fun places for kids like their arcade (for games such as Dance Dance Revolution) or the Pacific Science Center. A must for people visiting Seattle! Also visit the Space Needle, where you can have a great view of Seattle!
PROS: Space Needle, diverse people
