Shug’s Brown Derby Sundae

Summer homework: eating every sundae at Pike Place Market’s retro-styled soda fountain. Starting with a scoop of ice cream atop a double chocolate doughnut, all dripping with hot fudge.  —Allecia Vermillion

Great State Burgers

Grass-fed meat, house-made pickles—there’s much in Josh Henderson’s faux-lowbrow burger joints to admire. But OMG these fries: crinkle cut, genuine flavor, perfect crunch.  —Kathryn Robinson

Xi’An Noodles

Hand-pulled biang biang noodles have landed in the U District. They’re wide and endlessly long, and I can’t stop thinking about the simple version with fragrant toasted chili flakes. 5259 University Way NE, 206-522-8888 AV

Meet the Moon

Most fans cram Leschi’s all-day family cafe and bar at brunch. We say go later for a grain salad: a bowl of greens, farro, barley, garbanzos, almonds, feta, and crunchy vegetables. So satisfying. —KR
