Tai Tung was Bruce Lee’s favorite Chinese restaurant in town. That’s not the only reason this place is steeped in history—it also happens to be Seattle’s oldest Chinese restaurant. Here, you’ll find nods to Bruce around the dining room, including cardboard cutouts and a memorial booth. Bruce’s favorite dish was the beef with a rich oyster sauce, and while that’s delicious (especially spooned on top of pork fried rice), Tai Tung also has some standout wonton soup, noodles, and our personal favorite: battered almond chicken that crunches like a heap of October leaves.
