A "Remember Moment" in Seattle
I'd like to have a remember moment in Seattle.
Remember the muffaletta we had at the Central Grocery in N.O.?
Remember the lemon ricotta pancakes we had in Sonoma?
Will you help me with finding a restaurant, meal, drink, muffin... anything that will help me finish the phrase
Remember the ________ we had in Seattle?
The Sqechuan crab at Seven Stars Szechuan Restaurant. Every visitor I have taken there has left in awe.
_____ the amazing selection of oysters at happy hour at Brooklyn Grille. Ruined me for oysters almost anywhere else (barring Swan Oyster Depot in San Francisco).
____ the catfish sandwich at lunch at Matt's at the Market.
The rabbit at Cafe Juanita
The chicken thigh sandwich at Paseo
The french onion soup at Lynn's Bistro in Kirkland
The scallops (eaten raw at home) from Mutual Fish
The meat sampler from Salumi
and to a certain extent, the eggplant fries at Poppy because while I didn't think they were that great at the time, I have since found myself thinking about them.
I started at north end of Pike's Market, first coffee at Starbucks #1 (I know, but it was the first location). Then a hot Palmier at La Palmier, another few blocks down a hot Char Siu Bao from the vendor on the sidewalk, baked not steamed. Nice walking breakfast.
Forgot to mention the French fries at Sambar . . . . and there was a fresh cherry float I had at Cafe Juanita that I still think about . . . .
BBQ Pork sandwich, mild, and ask for "extra messy" at Pecos Pit BBQ,
2260 1st Ave S (206) 623-0629. M-F lunch only. Eat outside.
My “remember list” includes:
Veal sweetbreads at Café Juanita
Blood sausage at Harvest Vine
Galician-style octopus at Harvest Vine
Green mango salad at Tamarind Tree
Meatballs at Salumi
Croissants at Café Besalu
Fresh oysters at Elliott’s
I also remember, with undying affection, Peter Cipra’s amazing Bavarian Duck at Labuznick. Actually, everything Peter cooked was magnificent.
