It’d be no surprise to say we ate our way through Seattle and its suburbs. Below are some of the nosh and noms we found that made our tumblies a lot less rumbly.
What’s What: (left to right)
Healthy veggie and baked tofu snack with pineapple tamarind to share at Kigo Kitchen. Catching up on work emails with a cafe au lait at the philanthropic Street Bean Espresso. Spam onigiri (before being devoured) at the 39th Seattle Cherry Blossom & Japanese Cultural Festival. Perhaps the cutest beer can I’ve ever seen? Gluten-free pizza and Caesar salad at The Pike Brewing Company.
A hearty plate of rice, beans and carne asada tacos at Blue Water Taco Grill our first rainy night there. Remember the lime crisis? Here’s a sign if you don’t. Powering up smart phones and a break for DIY frozen yogurt treats at Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt. Pickle parade at Moshi Moshi Sushi’s Happy Hour. Rosy taking a photo of her red velvet cheesecake pop from The Confectional.
Pal Lisa Jane Persky and our somewhat perplexing New American Thali-style dinners at Poppy. Japanese mochi, chestnut and red bean gluten-friendly sweets from Umai-Do. Hello, smashed garlic potato and scramble breakfast! at Lola. A Pixies-inspired Surfer Rosa, made by the most handsome, plaid-shirted bartender at Tavern Law. The modern table setting at Poppy. Sunomono and yakitori teriyaki from Moshi Moshi Sushi.
