Three Tasty, Kid-Friendly Places to Eat on the Eastside
Go with a tasty standard at Feed Co. Burgers, or let kids design their own meal.
Whether you're a longstanding Eastsider or just bringing the kids for a trip across Lake Washington, here are three family-friendly options for dining in Bellevue and beyond.
Bellevue Brewing Company: This local craft brewery has been serving good beer and tasty food to the Eastside since 2012. They specialize in New American cuisine and emphasize fresh and locally sourced ingredients. Favorites include stone-fired pizza, creative sandwiches, and generously portioned salads. For a whimsical treat, kid meals are served on a take-home Frisbee. Even better, bring the family on a Sunday and have your kids eat for half-price. 1820 130th Ave. NE, Bellevue
Feed Co. Burgers: In 2015, Scott Staples expanded to Redmond with the gourmet burgers he became known for at Uneeda Burger and Quinn's. Order the $5 classic, or go for one of his bolder creations, like the spicy Baja or the stellar lamb burger with tempura lemon. Creative kids can design their own meals with their choice of protein, side, and drink. Make sure to order some of their rotating seasonal crispy vegetable tempura for the whole family to share — it's never been easier to get kids to eat their vegetables. 7990 Leary Way NE, Redmond
Dough Zone: You might know by now about dumpling powerhouse Din Tai Fung, but the Eastside has quietly grown another small chain of restaurants where hungry families can get their dumpling fix. Dough Zone just opened its third location east of the lake, now with one in Redmond and two in Bellevue. Their xiao long bao rival any you can find in town, and their hand-cut noodles will delight diners of all ages. Add crispy green onion pancakes and Chinese doughnuts to the mix, and you'll have one happy (and full) family. 15920 NE 8th St., Bellevue; 14625 NE 24th St., Bellevue; 7625 170th Ave NE, Redmond
