Little Uncle – Capitol Hill

Little Uncle’s Phad Thai Rai Sen (noodle-less Phad Thai)

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.
