Chiho Bistro

It can be difficult to find somewhere for a quiet dinner in Belltown when you’re perpetually surrounded by corporate employees heading to Happy Hours and tourists who couldn’t get into Shiro’s. But Chiho is one of the calmest restaurants in the city, especially for it being in the middle of an extremely loud neighborhood. This cozy Chinese spot specializes in soup dumplings, from classic xiao long bao to black-dyed wrappers filled with brothy truffle-spiked pork. Stick with those over the other mains and you’ll be set for a decent casual weeknight dinner.
