We all know how chilly it’s been getting around Seattle, and few things warm us up on these winter days like a steaming helping of some of our favorite Asian cuisine. With fragrant spices and heat balanced by coconut or lime, curry is a comfort on chilly days. Our friends over at Seattle Magazine have rounded up four great spots where you can enjoy your plate of spicy thai, so grab your forks and get to eatin’! Taneeka Hansen writes:
A handmade curry paste featuring red chile peppers and shallots has made the PEARL OCEAN SALMON a star here for several years, showcasing grilled wild-caught salmon perched atop stir-fried vegetables and a generous blanket of the fragrant red sauce.$13. Ballard, 2213 NW Market St.; 206.420.3214; roottablerestaurant.com
This tiny Thai stop is always trying new and wild curries (both on the creative front and with foraged ingredients), but we’re infatuated with the spicy KHAO SOI GAI, a chicken curry noodle soup made with the house red curry and house-made coconut milk, perfect with egg noodles and pickled greens for garnish. $8.80. Capitol Hill, 1509 E Madison St.; 206.329.1503; littleuncleseattle.com
