Best Places to Eat in Bellevue While Waiting for Your Auto Maintenance

If you ever get stranded in Bellevue with an automobile that is in need of repairs or if you just happen to go there to get some standard maintenance done, you should know that one of the best ways to pass the time is by having some of your favorite eats at any one of the many great restaurants in the area. No matter what kind of food you are into or what kind of a dining experience you are looking for, rest assured that you can find it all within easy walking distance. Some restaurants invite you to come in, sit down and stay awhile, while others are just perfect for grabbing something on the go and then rushing off to see all that the beautiful city of Bellevue has to offer.

One of the coolest places for fans of Asian food in the Bellevue area is Sushi Me. This awesome little restaurant offers a dining experience like no other. Diners come in and sit in front of a conveyor belt. Thanks to the conveyor belt, delicious plates of sushi will pass right in front of their faces, and they can feast on and enjoy any plate that they desire. Of course, if you’re not into the whole conveyor belt style of dining, you can always choose to place a special order as well. In any case, feel free to enjoy a delicious alcoholic beverage of your choice from the restaurant’s very full drink selections. Non-alcoholic beverages are also available as well, and many alcoholic drinks can be made without alcohol at your request.

Those who prefer their seafood to be fully cooked, as opposed to raw, will likely enjoy the delicious offerings of McCormick and Schmick’s Seafood Restaurant. Enjoy delicious fried or broiled fish, shrimp prepared to order, salmon filets, oysters, and any other sea faring food your heart desires. Even those who are not big on seafood can enjoy a steak, freshly prepared chicken, a giant salad, or a steaming plate of pasta from the non-seafood menu. Plus, there is a lively bar, with great happy hour specials, and special, extra affordable prices on items from the “bar food” menu. This is a great place to come with friends or the family while you wait, or just to sit alone and enjoy yourself.

If you are into Asian cuisine, but Sushi Me wasn’t quite your style, then you will probably enjoy having a meal at Peking Wok Mandarin & Szechuan Cuisine. All kinds of Asian and Asian Fusion items grace this delectable menu. Customer favorites include the scrumptious and slightly spicy chicken with black bean sauce, the savory crispy duck, and the sweet and spicy garlic pork. This is also a great spot for those in need of vegetarian options; the menu even includes some favorite and very hard to find tofu dishes as well. Even for non-vegetarians, the deep fried tofu appetizer, served with a dipping sauce that is out of this world, is an absolute must to try.
