If you were lucky growing up like I did, comfort food in fall meant Kraft mac n' cheese, Campbell's tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches--and if it was a special Sunday when the mediocre Seahawks were on Sunday Night Football--just maybe mom got a pot roast and served it with roasted potatoes, carrots, onions and a ladle full of gravy.
Wow have times changed.
We aren't doing anything from a box or a can this fall. And the Seahawks sure aren't mediocre. We serve plenty of comfort food, but this isn't a throw back; we've taken our menu to the comfort food Super Bowl.
Delicious Asian inspired dishes focusing on all-natural and organic Northwest ingredients is what makes us the go-to spot in Edmonds' at Five Corners.

Here's a peek at our new fall comfort foods:
Crispy Wonton Avocado Salad
Mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, carrots, and sweet bell peppers with a sesame-lime vinaigrette.
Our quick take: An explosive mix of smoky, sweet, and crispy--all in light and fresh bites.
Scallion & Garlic Chicken Wings
Served with our unique scented-cumin Szechuan creame fraiche.
Our quick take: Aromatic and garlicky crispy fried wings balanced by a spicy-cool Szechuan sour cream-like dipping sauce.
Salt & Pepper Lamb Riblets
Grilled lamb riblets, sauted red jalapeños, scallions, garlic, and cilantro.
Our quick take: Delicious little treats--spice-rubbed and served perfectly grilled and tender, alongside a creamy jalapeño spread.
6oz Beef Tenderloin
Served with roasted Szechuan potatoes, black bean garlic broccolini, with a ginger daikon sauce.
Our quick take: Meat and potatoes on another level--buttery and hearty beef plated with poppy Szechuan peppercorn potatoes will put you in a good mood.
Satay Lamb Chops
Grilled sweet spice-marinated lamb lollipops served with curried flash-fried brussels sprouts, jasmine rice and a peanut tamarind dipping sauce.
Our quick take: Fun dipper-sized finger foods which meld perfectly with the curry and smoky fried brussels sprouts.
Pork Belly Ancho Chili Ramen
Ancho chile pork bone broth, slow roasted pork belly, Napa cabbage, ramen noodles, poached egg, scallions, and a touch of seaweed.
Our quick take: Smoky goodness in a bowl! Housemade pork bone broth simmered for longer than we'll share, added to tender pork belly and spongy, flavor absorbing ramen. The ancho chiles bubble up comfort food memories for Chef Luis--his mom made him soup like this as a kid.
