Although roughly 1,000 different entrees can be sampled at Chang's Mongolian Grill, diners won't need to peruse a menu as thick as a phone book. Instead, you get to peruse the all-you-can-eat food bar and fill a bowl with your choice of meats, vegetables, and noodles. A helpful chart recommends tried-and-true combinations, but guests are free to experiment, mixing and matching sauces as they see fit.
For the final step, the chefs take each bowl and pour its contents onto a large, circular grill in the center of the open kitchen. They shuffle and slide each order around the magma-heated grill until every last morsel is evenly seared, then sweep everything onto a waiting plate. All you'll need to do is take it back to your table and enjoy the freshly grilled meal. Additional sides of soup, rice, or crepes are also available.
At Vanishing Veins Northwest, board-certified radiologists and nurse practitioners act as reverse artists, erasing the unsightly scribbles of spider and varicose veins. They typically administer noninvasive or minimally invasive treatments such as EVLT—Endovenous Laser Therapy—which closes varicose veins by applying laser energy to the affected tissues. Alternatively, sclerotherapy sessions address spider veins with an injected solution that causes the vessel walls to swell up, blocking blood flow and leading to the vein’s collapse and disappearance without it first spelling out "Nooooo!" Both procedures entail short recovery periods and include detailed medical evaluations. After their treatments, patients can benefit from reduced leg discomfort and the boost in confidence that comes with clearer skin.
Rumbar Plaza Cafe's ample menu augments the selections of a classic American deli with Filipino flavors. Breakfast burritos, normally the territory of eggs, cheese, bacon, and hungry bachelors, get a dose of tapsilog and tocilog—Filipino blends of marinated beef or pork with garlic-fried rice and fried eggs. The kitchen team also whips up combo plates with menudo, pork, chicken adobo, beef caldereta, or dinuguan, as well as traditional caesar salads, reubens, and tuscan turkey sandwiches, the sandwiches most likely to be leaning at a seemingly impossible angle. In addition to wraps, chicken wings, palabok, and sisig, Rumbar also serves beer and wine, hosts Friday-night karaoke, takes pick-up orders, and provides catering for 100 guests or more.
When Marianna Ristorante opened, the restaurant’s trademark was a dish perfect by the owner’s mom. The Renton Reporter wrote that the farfalle alle Marianna— bowtie pasta tossed with yellow peppers, prosciutto, and cream—came from co-owner Salvatore Lembo’s mother, for whom the restaurant is named. These days, Salvatore lets Executive Chef Jackson Cavanaugh put his own stamp on a seasonal selection of Northern Italian specialties. Those range from homemade gnocchi to fettuccini tossed with salmon and boneless chicken breast smothered in gorgonzola cream sauce. Dinner is served inside Marianna Ristorante’s candlelit dining room, which evokes the atmosphere of an Old World eatery with earthy tones .

Like any German pub worth its pretzel salt, Berliner Pub has an outdoor beer garden with communal tables inspired by German beer halls, 18 German beers on draft, and a menu of housemade brats and schnitzels. Waitresses clad in Bavarian-beer-maid ensembles bustle about holding liters of Munich's popular Hofbräu lager or Mai-Ur-Bock from Einbecker, which is considered to be the first brewery to brew a bock.
On Saturday nights, a band set up in front of a shelf of steins plays traditional German music, which consists of accordion sounds, guitar riffs, and then some more accordion sounds. During every Seattle Sounders home match, a bus transports fans to the soccer game and back to the pub for a quick drink around the indoor or outdoor fire pits.
