With more than 40,000 students and 20,000 faculty and staff, University of Washington is one of the biggest urban universities in the country. The University District, known as the U District, functions like a big college town tucked inside a city, and The Ave (aka University Way) is its main street, where Huskies gravitate when they’re craving an off-campus meal. Most of the restaurants in the area are affordable, casual spots, and the options are eclectic with lots of good Asian food; there are regional Chinese restaurants, gyro windows, pho shops, dive bars, a brewery, and over 20 boba tea shops. Here are some favorites.
