Last year’s poke craze has left many of us unexcited about yet another new restaurant serving bowls of raw fish. Yet Fremont Bowl (where Suga and, before that, Dot’s Delicatessen were located) manages to delight with simple Japanese-style rice bowls, or donburi, that feature fresh raw fish or ingredients such as chicken teriyaki.

The chirashi ($14.95)—a bowl of rice piled with a rainbow of raw fish, including tuna, salmon, yellowtail, eel and more, accented with a single shiso leaf and fresh wasabi—has earned the most fans, for good reason. It brings a joy similar to what’s experienced at an omakase sushi dinner, but you can inhale it during a lunch break.

Pro tip: Avoid long lines by calling in your order and picking it up; there is limited seating. The downside? You’ll miss out on the house-made soy sauce available in the restaurant. 

Fremont, 4258 Fremont Ave. N; 206.504.3095.

How is there not a line out the door?

Each time I return, for the mortadella sandwich with whipped ricotta and “pistachio jazz” at lunch or the black garlic knots at dinner, I marvel that the massive crowds of Seattle dining scenesters have yet to find it.
