Eudemonia, you'll be very close to the South Lake Union Whole Foods on Denny & Westlake. Since you don't mind a good walk up Capitol Hill, I believe Plum Bistro labels their soy-free options on the menu. If you don't mind taking a bus (the stop's adjacent to Whole Foods on Denny) take the 8 to Madison & 27th and walk a couple of blocks down Madison to Cafe Flora, which labels its soy-free options. I wish I had more suggestions! My BF was eating soy-free last year and it was easy at home, but tough when we wanted to go out.

Thanks, I think I'll just make a stop at whole foods to stock up on a few emergency rations when I get there (now that I know how to find a grocery store haha). It's easier to be soy-free here in Canada because hardly anyone tends to fry in soybean oil - it's all canola. It seems that south of the border you guys use a lot of soybean oil so I can't even go to the pub and eat fries for dinner. I've managed a few trips before but generally end up being hangry for most of my visit. I was also hoping to find a nicer restaurant that I could eat at as my boyfriend wants to take his friend out for dinner. Might just have to tell him to do that on a night I'm not there.

If you find yourself in the greater Crown Hill/Greenwood/Northgate area and are looking for food, The Alibi Room has a yummy vegan "pizza" on the menu. It's located behind the Jiffy Lube where Holman Rd crosses Greenwood and become 105th, in the unlikeliest spot for a bar/restaurant with a decent little menu. I call it "pizza" because it's vegan pesto, chickpeas, red onion, and kalamatas finished with a balsamic reduction, so it's not going to hit the spot if you're actually craving pizza but it was really good! They also have a sundried tomato/olive tapenade with foccacia so you can skip the marginal hummus plate (it's white bean hummus with no tahini, not great.)

I dunno how I haven't mentioned this yet, but Cafe Turko in Fremont is super vegan friendly Turkish food and it is so good. I eat there at least once a month since I work around the corner.

I'll be visiting at the end of the month and am looking forward to some legit Thai food. Has anybody had any good experiences eating vegan at non-vegan specific Thai restaurants? Mai Thaiku in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood particularly piqued my interest with their delicious and vegetarian-friendly sounding menu.

I have not been to Mai Thaiku. If you end up there you'll have to leave us (well me, anyway!) a review. I go to Thai Siam in Crown Hill a fair amount. They are really nice people and they are on the ball about fish sauce, etc... concerns.

Mai Thaiku is NOT veg-friendly, especially compared to the abundance of Thai restaurants in Seattle.

I went there a couple weeks ago. Few of their dishes can be modified to be veg-friendly (no substituting tofu for prawns....huh?), and their servings are very small.
It was definitely not worth the price, especially when there are so many choices around. The appetizer we got was good (but not at all what we were expecting), but my pad see ew was oily and bland. My friend's salad was pretty tasty, but very small.

Thai Siam is so much better, listen to mtoes!

Have you guys been to jhanjay Thai? Used to be (?still) all vegetarian and were very accommodating. And tasty!

Yes, I love Jhanjay. The garlic & black pepper stir fry is my favorite.

One more question, Seattle folks! I just noticed the note next to Highline Bar that the kitchen closed back in 2013. I was counting on them for late night dinner when I arrive on a Wednesday at 10pm. Is there any other places open after 10 on a Wednesday night that offer tasty food? I will be staying either in Ballard, Wallingford or Minor area (can't make up my mind!) and will have a rental car if that helps. Thanks!!

Po Dog in Ballard has field roast dogs and is open until 2:00 a.m.!
I think El Chupacabra in Phinney (it's right next door to Mai Thaiku) serves food until eleven, and they have excellent burritos and tacos.

Other than that... we aren't really an 'open late' kind of city. All my Californian friends never let me live it down.

eta: worst case scenario, there are some diners open late- Roxy's in Green Lake area ish and Hurricane Cafe in South Lake Union area...oh, and there are some vegan options at The 5 Point in Belltown.

Oh! And Sinbad Gyros in Fremont are open until 1:00 a.m.! And it's very tasty and the guys that work there are super nice and have assured me multiple times the falafel is vegan.

There's also Alibi Room in Greenwood. They have a vegan pizza (and maybe some other vegan options?) and they're open until 2 a.m. I think.

And Aladdin Falafel Corner in the U-District is open until 2. Beth's Cafe on Aurora never closes and they have a Boca burger and vegan chili (and possibly a vegan sausage and biscuits & gravy?), and El Borracho in Ballard serves food until 1 and they have crazy-good nachos, tacos, and burritos.

The Hurricane, sadly, is closed.

+1 for El Borracho! Also, Georgetown Liquor is kind of out of your way but I assume that they serve food late. I guess i haven't been there late enough to test that theory so don't take my word for it. But... Picard... drool.

Also, whoa. I had not idea Beth's was at all vegan friendly.

I totally meant Beth's and I have no idea why I wrote Roxy's instead. Roxy's is not all that veg friendly and they close early and their service is crepe. A waitress lied to me about what veg sausages they used and what the ingredients were. When I called her out on it, she said, "It's not meat; what's it matter?" ...

Also, another vote on El Borracho, too...though I prefer the chup if you can make it before their kitchen closes.
Aladdin's is tasty, but they only take cash or have some weird rule about cash and cards...it's been a while since I've been there, so my memory is hazy.
