The View in the Dentist Chair
This is one of those days that feels like it deserves two entries.

After an earlier dentist appointment (the picture above was my view for an hour), we began the day’s highlights at the new Bamboo Village Dim Sum in Wallingford, near the Greenlake/Stone Way intersection.

I feel like I speak for the entire northern half of Seattle dim sum lovers when I say I’m thrilled to have this new dim sum restaurant only a mile or so from my house. We had a table for 5 & started at noon. The restaurant was half-full, but two in our group had been on Monday lunch when it was packed. I tried dishes I hadn’t had except on our DimSumCouver trips — many dishes were on par, though one or two didn’t hit the same high notes as we’ve had there. Still, an epic lunch at about $11 a person. I enjoyed the pastry-wrapped BBQ pork and the salted custard buns.

I wasn’t even hungry 7 hours later when it was time to head to June Seattle for our Burger of the Month dinner. I soldiered on. I ordered the Thundering Hooves beef done medium rare, with a thick slab of bacon and Taleggio cheese. A damn great sandwich. Naomi ordered the lamb collar, an exceptional hunk delivered in a bowl of pasta. Everything I tried — including appetizers of salty stuffed morels and the creamy rillettes — reminded me to remember to bring Mr. T back for dinner.

  1. I’ve had two good meals at Bamboo Village and am thrilled to have them in the neighborhood as well. Clearly I need to check out June Seattle next.
