The sibling of the Eastside’s Miah’s Kitchen and the original Qin in Edmonds, the former sandwich shop still has drunken chicken on offer but the hot oil noodles are more and more why people stop in at the Pine below Melrose shop.
Inside, you’ll find the space mostly unchanged save for the chef hand pulling noodles in the middle of the action. The Biang Biang noodles are the star of the show, “freshly hand-made throughout the day right in the restaurant” and “served with a wide variety of flavors, toppings, and sauces.” Prices are also agreeable with a bowl of pulled noodles and pork clocking in at $9.99.
To help complete the family tree for the space, Baguette Box was born on Pine as a project from neighborhood restaurateur Eric Banh. He reportedly sold the little sandwich shop in 2011 to help finance the buildout of 12th Ave’s original Ba Bar.
Now, Qin rules, ready to begin a new noodle dynasty on Pine.
Qin Seattle is located at 1203 Pine. Hours are 11 AM to 8:30 PM, Mondays through Saturdays, closed Sundays. You can learn more about the restaurant family at miahskitchen.weebly.com.
