Little Uncle‘s Capitol Hill location may only be 110 square feet, but somehow it ranks in my top two Seattle Thai places. The main, delicious reason is pictured above: noodle-less pad Thai, with tofu, eggs, shallots, and various other tasty ingredients. (And if you want, they even hold the bean sprouts.) A Thai dish without rice or noodles is almost unheard of in Seattle–and hence all the more worth celebrating.
Any meal here wouldn’t be complete without a moment of appreciation for the stand’s small, thoughtful touches. Even though this is sidewalk fare, the chairs and tables have a novel wood design. Also, with most dishes, diners receive three wax-paper packets (peanuts, chili pepper seasoning, and sugar) to season the dish as they see fit. Here’s a pic of it all tied neatly together, as if dressed for its first day of work.
