One of the answers: “Paseo.” Paseo? I love the place, but doesn’t everyone?
Pho Bac, another place I already think of as a big name, also made the list. Some of the other answers were lesser-known or arguably underrated, though. Pho Viet Anh got the plug that “in a city famous for pho, this little place in Lower Queen Anne makes the best pho in the city hands down.” Ben Thanh in Columbia City does look like it deserves a wider audience. Instead of Tat’s, one commenter suggested, seek out the older and crowd-free Philadelphia Fevre for “tasty tasty tasty” fare (and never even mind the Kakes!). El Camion and Pike Street Fish Fry were there too.
We’ll give a $50 gift certificate to a participating restaurant to the person with the answer that gets the most “likes.” Add your opinions and entries here.

We’re running a Restaurant Week contest over on the Seattle Times Facebook page, awarding restaurant gift certificates to the most-liked answers to our questions. First up: What, we asked, are the city’s best cheap eats?
We’ve seen some of the usual popular answers: Paseo’s famous sandwiches, Rancho Bravo’s indoor version of a taco truck, Gordito’s baby-sized burritos, and the life-changing Dick’s Drive-In burgers and Than Brothers pho. But some other nominations are new to us: There’s a vote for Plume Vietnamese in the University Village area, and one for the long vegetarian/vegan menu at the Moonlight Cafe in the Central District. Fogon on Capitol Hill was nominated for its happy hour (although if we’re playing the happy hour game a lot of other restaurants would qualify), and so did Cutting Board sushi in Georgetown and TNT in Wallingford. Bar del Corso on Beacon Hill got a nod for being comparatively cheap for what you get.
