Regent Bakery and Cafe Brings Westernized Chinese Food to Capitol Hill
If sweet-and-sour pork, fried wontons, egg foo young, and almond chicken (or General Tso’s chicken) are your thing, you’ll be happy to know that Regent Bakery and Cafe is now open in Seattle. This offshoot of the Redmond location adds another Asian restaurant to Capitol Hill’s commercial core.
Regent has added elegance to the new restaurant’s atmosphere. It’s casual enough for coffee and cake while being classy enough for a cocktail. And you can satisfy your cravings lunchtime to late-night, as well as get goodies to go.
This is not my favorite type of Chinese food (you’re more likely to find me at a Sichuanese or Taiwanese joint), but if you accept the premise, you’ll be rewarded by decent portions and pricing a little higher than in the International District, and a little more reasonable than in the higher-end Chinese restaurants. Plus, there’s sponge cake–and soon some bubble tea.
