A quick post about some new restaurants I've been enjoying. In the old Coffee Messiah space is In The Bowl, a vegetarian noodle joint that is really tasty and inexpensive and has dozens of noodle dishes, not to mention several curries and other "episodes." A main dish by itself is filling enough, but then the server comes by and slides you the included dessert. A couple blocks down the hill from them is Sushi Maki, serving up up well-made rolls about as big as your arm and occupying a cubbyhole of about 200 square feet (only three stools if you eat there -- it's better to call up and place an order to go). First time there I unknowingly ordered two rolls and miso soup, and the chef handed me a complimentary starter of cucumber snomono -- very crisp cuts of cucumber sprinkled with sesame seeds in a delightfully light sauce. It ended up being so much food that I had to get almost half of the rolls to go. Lastly, there is finally a decent Indian restaurant in Pioneer Square! It's called Simba, on 2nd just south of Yesler. The lunch combo (six bucks!) includes rice, a choice of three of the eight rotating buffet dishes (half meat, half veggie), flat bread, salad, and dessert (kheer). Their mango lassis are quite good, too. It's a productivity killer, though, because after lunch all I want to do is sleep the rest of the afternoon.
