I love taro but am having a hard time finding any restaurants in the Seattle area that offer dishes with this.

Usually this would be a Chinese restaurant.

Does anyone have suggestions?

Hing Loon has a great braised pork belly with taro (or with fermented vegetables) that is just the thing in this blustery time of year.

there is a lot of taro I am pretty sure Jade Garden down buy the King Street station .. has  a few  taro based dim sum and they have it on the menu as well


Maylay Satay Hut has  a Buddah's delight in a great big taro bowl and i know you can ask her to make you taro dishes you can "ask" anywhere

(reviews say downtown place is closed I was just there a few months ago ..I have no idea  they have another location in Renton ..wow bummer if they are closed) 

good luck

Pastrygirl  sorry I missed this ..I saw that and  edited my post ..i was heartbroken when I worked at Harborview I used to go there after work on fridays ordering everything I could carry to eat on my way home on  :( wow ..if you find someplace that makes that yummy taro bowl for Buddah delight like they did ? please let me know  I will make a trip ..I (almost) do not care what is in the bowl the bowl is just so good! I could learn to make it ..but like I need a bunch of taro bowls? 


I actually knew the owners (or partners owners I am not sure )  back when I worked at Harborview and still make their curry chicken (she slipped me the recipe one day as a gift when I left my position)
