Best New Restaurant2012 Finalist See 2012’s Winner »
305 Burnett Ave. S., Renton, WA 98057
It may look like meat and taste like meat, but servers at this Renton restaurant are quick to assure patrons that everything on the menu is animal flesh-free. Working in a Buddhist cuisine idiom that's underexposed in the U.S., chef and nun Hue Phan creates gorgeous sesame beef and roast pork from vegetables, soy and seitan. The properly spicy bun bo hue is at least the equal of any meat-based soup. Like all the dishes at Blossom, the bun is visually indistinguishable from its meat-based counterpart. In addition to a knot of noodles, perky basil, grated carrots, jalapeños, and a heap of cilantro and mint, the broth's accompanied by a triangle of fried tofu and salty "beef" that could hold its own in a suspect lineup.
