Dan and I just spent a long weekend in Seattle, eating our way through some amazing places. We had recommendations for so many spots and got to explore Ballard, Fremont, and Capitol Hill as we ate our way through them all. It was a treat and a half.
I’ve visited before and ate at the wonderful Sitka & Spruce which I was sad to miss on this trip. Instead, we ate the best chocolate croissants we’ve ever had at Cafe Besalu (and some damn good quiche to boot); had a gut-busting breakfast at the awesome Skillet Diner (order The Little Rob); stumbled upon what we later learned was a Seattle institution (the $1.50 burger, fries, and perfect strawberry milkshake were totally of another era and tasted AMAZING); and finally, on our last night we found great sushi and sashimi at Umi Sake House (it was sushi or bust by that point, I tell you).
Now that I’m back and the weather is promising to start changing, I’m looking forward to cooking again. It’s been a summer of little kitchen action (and hence, little blogging action). I’ve missed this space and I hope to be back soon.
P.S. More pictures of non-food stuff over here, if you’re interested.
