Little Uncle – Seattle’s best Pad Thai

One of the best things about living in Seattle is easy access to great Asian restaurants. I have a few favorite Thai places that I keep on rotation, one of them being Little Uncle. Their menu may be tiny, but I think they have the best Pad Thai in the city.

I often frequent their original location on Madison Ave. although they recently opened a larger space in Pioneer Square. The Madison location is tiny (there are about two tables to sit at) so I always take my food to go and enjoy it in a nearby park or at home. One time I was so excited to eat my Pad Thai, I shamelessly devoured it in my car, before even turning on the ignition.

The Pad Thai comes wrapped in brown butcher paper, and the noodles are piping hot with steam, ready to be enjoyed. Be sure and take advantage of the little bags of accompaniments included: palm sugar, crushed peanuts, and pepper flakes. I like to dump everything on top of my noodles, stir them with my chopsticks, and squeeze the provided lime directly over everything. 

Apart from the deliciousness of Little Uncle, the Pad Thai is under $9.00, giving me many opportunities to feed my addiction over the course of the month!
