Wanting something fairly healthful for lunch, my friend Katie and I stopped at Boom Noodle in Capitol Hill. I dunno how this connection works, but this three location restaurant is a lot like this international Asian chain called Wagamama. Except I like Boom Noodle's menu a lot better.
This was actually a lot like Trader Joe's edamame hummus. Though I love that, I was hoping for more flavor from that eggplant and yuzu pepper.
It was so big! The sesame vinaigrette was magical! Who doesn't want a huge pile of well dressed vegetables?

|Boom Edamame Puree - $4.95 - edamame puree with sweet potato crisps, baby cucumber, japanese eggplant, yuzu pepper|
|It was still good though, and with some sriaracha to spike that blunt creaminess, it was not exactly hard to plow our way through that edamame baseball.|
|Mizuna salad (Gluten Free and Vegetarian (if one chooses)) - $11.95 - (chicken or tofu, add $1 for grilled prawns) - fresh baby mizuna, bell peppers, cucumbers, baby lima beans, sweet potato chips, with black sesame vinaigrette|
|Okonomiyaki (G available) - $8.50 - osaka style japanese pancake with pork, cabbage, green onions, aioli, tonkatsu sauce, tempura, pickled ginger, jalapeños, bonito flake|
Yes yes yes! If you read that list of ingredients and your mouth isn't watering, I doubt we could be friends.
|Play with your sauces!|
|We weren't there for drinks, but this is cute! Eel River Organic Porter! Ginger elixir! Mmph! Also, Seattle beer prices in general are a beautiful thing. Do not take them for granted, Seattlites.|
When we were leaving, I noticed that all the other tables had signs on them announcing a lunch special for $8.95 that consisted of a Boom Banh Mi with small Coconut Curry Chicken soup, that weren't on the menu otherwise. I can hardly think of a better lunch combo idea.
