Little Uncle is the much anticipated, sit-down restaurant from chefs Wiley Frank and Poncharee Kounpungchart (better known as PK), who have been churning out fresh, traditional Thai street-food dishes from a Capitol Hill walk-up window since 2011. (That spot continues under the name Little Uncle Take Out Window.) At the expanded Little Uncle, which has indoor seating and a bar serving beer and cocktails, the menu focuses on noodles entrees such as phad thai, khao soi, and dom yum wun sen (bean thread noodles with roasted pork). There’s also a selection of dishes for sharing, including phad pak (greens sautéed with tofu skins and chilies), rice cakes stuffed with chives, and jungle curry with wild boar.
