Vegan Eating Seattle

Vegan Eating Seattle

Our eating schedule has been thrown off a little again this week, as my good friend from high school and her boyfriend were in town checking out UW for grad school. My friend has a dairy allergy, so she can’t eat anything with cow’s milk, cheese, butter, etc. Basically her diet can be described as…

Shiro’s Sushi

Shiro’s Sushi

When I popped the first piece of albacore in my mouth, my life changed. In a flash of rash decision making, I exclaimed that Shiro’s has ruined me. Subsequent outbursts of  “we’re never leaving Seattle,” or slightly inappropriate happy sounds aside, this place will have you questioning whether you can ever eat at a normal…

The Walrus and Carpenter + Hot Cakes

The Walrus and Carpenter + Hot Cakes

We’ve only been there a couple of times, but we think our favorite neighborhood in Seattle might be Ballard, home of both The Walrus and the Carpenter and the new Hot Cakes Molten Chocolate Cakery. We ventured out to the other side of Seattle one cloudy Saturday afternoon to explore this new-to-us neighborhood. We began…

Spinasse

Spinasse

We had one of the best restaurant meals we’ve had in a really long time at the lovely Cascina Spinasse in Capitol Hill. If you read the reviews on Yelp, you’ll read tons of praise for this restaurant, and based on our experience every complement received is totally deserved. According to their restaurant description, Spinasse…

Etta’s Brunch

Etta’s Brunch

Etta’s Seafood in Pike’s Place Market will always hold a special place in our heart since that is the restaurant where we got engaged. To celebrate our engagement and upcoming wedding (one week from today!), we stopped by Etta’s for brunch on a beautiful Seattle Sunday morning. We got a great table by the window…

Stopsky’s Delicatessen

Stopsky’s Delicatessen

Seattle Met magazine has been a great resource for helping us in choosing restaurants in our new city. Recently they released the best breakfast spots to eat. One of the places featured was Stopsky’s Delicatessen, a Jewish deli on Mercer Island, for their spin on Eggs Benedict. For a Jewish deli twist, you can order…

Pearl Bar and Dining

Pearl Bar and Dining

Loud, trendy, and sexy. Strong cocktails with a large price tag. Artisan food with a hip, refined atmosphere. When you step inside Pearl, nestled comfortably in downtown Bellevue, you’ll be greeted by a skimpily dressed maitre d’ and ushered past a lively, overflowing bar back into the dining area with booths and long tables with…

Pomegranate Bistro

Pomegranate Bistro

Pomegranate Bistro in Redmond has become our new favorite brunch spot out here. We went with some neighbors on their high recommendation, and let me just say we were blown away. We’ve been back again since and are already planning another trip soon. We might be obsessed. The first time we went when they were…

Monsoon East

Monsoon East

Neither Dustin nor I had high expectations going to Monsoon East. We had seen the restaurant during a walk, and then I found a deal for $75 worth of food for $45, so I decided to buy it. Dustin wasn’t enthused at the idea of Vietnamese food. Whenever he thinks Vietnamese food, he thinks pho,…

Palace Kitchen

Palace Kitchen

We’ve got another Tom Douglas restaurant down. If you are not from the Seattle area, then you probably are unaware of the city’s mini celeb chef with his numerous successful and much-loved restaurants. Our engagement took place at one of his seafood places, Etta’s, right in Pike’s Place. But our most recent adventure was to…
