Seattle PI food critic Leslie Kelly has released her list of the Top Ten Restaurants for Cheap Eats in Seattle and a Magnolia restaurant that opened this year has made the cut.
Time 4 Pho on Thorndyke is listed as number nine and Kelly calls is one of the best places in the city for noodle soup. Here is what she said:
Forget coffee shops. Seattle is awash in Vietnamese noodle soup, and one of the best spots to slurp also is one of the newest. This Magnolia cafe stands out in its efforts to let diners help themselves to the herbs and veggies that customize each steamy bowl of the deeply flavorful, slow-simmered stock. The condiment bar is stocked with bean sprouts, basil, slices of hot pepper, cilantro and wedges of lime. Take a little or a lot. This is the kind of buffet I can get behind.
Magnolia Voice readers seem to agree with Kelly’s review, Time 4 Pho is rated as one of the most popular restaurants by our readers. Remember that you can be your own restaurant critic anytime by visiting our restaurant section.
