Ok I see lots of great suggestions for lots of nice places to dine on this list. But in a recent NY times article it talked about Chowhounding (Is this a word?) as a game of finding out-of-the way down and dirty restaurants.

So does anyone have any favorites?

Some of mine are:
Sichuanese Cuisine on 12th and Jackson really good Hot Pot with a cool split bowl for a mild side and really really spicy side, and some of the greatest dumplings ever.

Sichuanese Cuisine luckily has a second location in Bellevue (Northeast 24th and 150thish) with really good very unusual dishes (including Ants on a Tree which is so yummy I can’t even tell you). Because of size limitations the 12th and Jackson site has a much more limited menu.

Also in Bellevue there is a great Taco Stand in the parking lot of a BP gas station that rocks.

On Broadway Thran(sp) Brothers Pho is great (order the last one on the menu for the tripe and tendon) with a wonderful cream puff for desert.
