Saturday Steals – Green Leaf Vietnamese Restaurant

Seattle and San Francisco’s China Towns have some of the most amazing deals for food. There are always tons of fantastic entrees, served in huge quantities for incredibly small prices.

Seattle’s China Town is also called the International District. It is not nearly as large as SF’s, but tucked within are restaurant gems like Green Leaf Vietnamese Restaurant. I went to lunch there the other day with my mom and our good friend, Valerie.

We read about Green Leaf in Seattle Magazine and all three of us wanted the featured dish, Bun Dac Biet. It is a huge bowl of noodles, raw and lightly sautéed vegetables, chicken, pork, skewered shrimp, and fried egg rolls.  A sweet and salty dressing adds the finishing touch. Just a word of warning, eat the egg rolls before dousing your bowl in dressing. They are better crisp.

The meal comes with complimentary Green Tea and for less than $9.00 at lunch time, I could have eaten half and had half for dinner. But I didn’t, because the warmth of the red chili sauce against the cool noodles kept calling me back for more. Plus, it’s rare I enforce any sort of food self control.

Bun Dac Biet: $8.95 (Lunch) & $9.50 (Dinner), includes complimentary green tea

  1. I have been looking for a good vietnamese restaurant in Seattle! And a cheap one at that. I am so excited to go and try Green Leaf.

  2. You are doing restaurant review too! Whoo hoo! I see, that’s what Saturday Steal means. My mom is coming from Japan this July and we are going to Seattle! I hope to find some good restaurant info from you! I almost always order this dish if not Pho. I’ll have to take a note on restaurant name! Thanks for sharing Mikaela!

  3. Mmmm, one of my favorite dishes — have Evenoted the restaurant for future reference. Can’t wait to get to Seattle’s International District again — first stop, Uwajimaya, then probably lunch here!

  4. Vietnamese noodles are just divine, they just have a way of mixing savory, sweet and fresh so well! This is definitely on my list of Seattle must do :)

  5. Sounds like a great place…the plate is loaded with goodies :)
