Discovering some worthwhile ethnic eateries and markets on Seattle's oft-derided Aurora Avenue North.
This month we head to the north end, Aurora Avenue North — yeah, the stretch of Highway 99 that has become notorious for prostitution and drug dealing. But really, there’s some good up here.
The early-risers line up on weekends for the 12-egg omelets at Beth’s Café. The late risers and the hung over get their pho and cream puffs at Than Brothers. Beer fans hit Über Tavern, a well-kept secret of the microbrew community.
Many immigrant entrepreneurs have taken advantage of the cheap rent to open up shops along Highway 99. We take a look at Aurora Avenue between North 78th and 79th streets, which features two immigrant groceries and two ethnic dining joints.
