Exploring the area for a possible move....

harryharry Sep 26, 2012 06:32 AM

So, I'm taking a three week trip to drive between Seattle and LA - I work in the food business and I'm a foodie... and I'm thinking of moving from the East Coast to some where out there on West Coast - I'm looking for suggestions for towns/cities in which I should spend some time (please tell me why when you make a suggestion :-) and specific places to eat or wineries to visit - I'll be on my own, so restaurants that have bars to eat at will be much appreciated... I'll post this same message on other relevant boards as well! Thanks in advance!

    Portland is insane. Good for foodie.
    Vancouver is my first pick though.

      Vancouver, Wa?
      Portland is better than Seattle for a foodie?
      Wow....things must have changed.

      In order from a person that was in your position. San Francisco of course is the tops,Portland rocks but while I chose Seattle as my new home the food is lacking.

        "The food is lacking." Curious statement. Tell us more please.
        Tried Ma'Ono last night in West Seattle. Had the pork buns. Excellent. If you haven't been there it's worth checking out.
