What to eat in and around Seattle today: Bugis

Jul 6 2020, 6:00 pm

Named after a popular street in Singapore, Bugis is a casual restaurant and cafe serving up tasty Korean-inspired dishes.

With affordable and filling bowls, this spot is typically bustling with UW students ready to chow down on their next meal.

If you’re going to eat at Bugis, you need to try one of their bowls.

Go for the hot spicy pork bowl if you’re seeking heat, and the mapo tofu bowl if you’re looking to avoid meat (although, it is served in a savory minced pork sauce). If you’d like the main attraction, be sure to order the rose cheese katsu bowl: a pork katsu stuffed with cheese and topped with rose sauce.

Those looking to try other items can indulge in a tteokbokki: a rice and fish cake stir-fried in a spicy sauce served with gyoza, a seafood okonomiyaki: savory seafood pancake topped with mayonnaise and fake bacon, or a shrimp and bacon carbonara tteokbokki: a shrimp, bacon, and rice cake stir-fried in creamy carbonara sauce.

The restaurant is currently open for takeout only, Monday to Saturday, from 11 am to 9 pm. Orders can be placed in person or through Uber Eats.
