The Stranger

Dear readers,

We need your help. The coronavirus crisis in Seattle is a major threat to The Stranger's ability to keep the city informed. We pride ourselves on having navigated many storms in the world of independent local media, but this time is different.

90% of our revenue—from advertising, ticketing fees, and our own events—is directly tied to people getting together in groups. The coronavirus situation has virtually eliminated this income all at once. At a time when the city needs local coverage more than ever, we're asking for your help to support continued coverage of everything happening in Seattle. You can make one-time or recurring donations. We can't say enough how much we appreciate your support. Thank you.

Phorale is not technically Vietnamese. Or Korean. Or Mexican. Or really anything other than what chef partners Jimmy Bui and Young Cho want it to be. That said, the majority of their menu is composed of banh mi, so Vietnamese it is. Though the format of their sandwiches hails from Vietnam, the things that go in them vary wildly. They are, however, united in deliciousness. The basic spicy pork sandwich—the “Fuego”—is literally and figuratively fire, but you also can’t go wrong with their bulgogi Philly cheese steak, their fried chicken sandwich, and their playfully bright take on pho. The Phorale fries—loaded curly fry nachos with a very creative array of toppings—are an instant nap, but one you’ll definitely want to take. Most impressive? They make all this magic happen from what was once a forlorn torta counter tucked into the back of a corner store in South Park. TOBIAS COUGHLIN-BOGUE
