All You Can Eat

Trend-setting restaurants, Northwest cookbooks, local food news and the people who make them happen.

Here’s what I crave when it’s hot out. You?

Last night, after a day’s worth of sweating over a hot keyboard, there was only one thing on my mind: South Korea’s summertime sensation, mool naeng myun — cold soba noodles in an icy beef broth with pickled cucumbers, hard-cooked eggs, sweet Asian pear and daikon radish. So I made a beeline for Kaya, my new favorite Korean restaurant, across from Aurora Village on Highway 99 in Shoreline.

“Bet they’re moving a lot of soondoobu today,” I told my friend Clint, who came along for the ride. I was joking. I mean, who’d want a bowl of hot stew on a day like yesterday, or today for that matter? The joke was on me of course, because the place was packed with brow-swiping diners eating a variety of hot spicy stews and firing up the tabletop grills for barbecue. That said, I noticed the pregnant lady sitting across from me (bless ‘er, in this heat!) was on the same page as I was: the one that said, “I’ll have the mool naeng myun, please — with extra ice.”

Ohhhhhh, what a relief it is!

Clint says: “Fight fire with fire” — in this case, spicy beef and leek stew.

So tell me: what do you crave when the temperature’s breaking records?
