Yuppers, so while the East Coast was getting slammed with snow, I was spending some time on the other coast in Seattle. Our trip started out with only being a four-day getaway but quickly turned into an entire week thanks to the crazy snow in Virginia Beach.
We did some pretty fabulous things, I mean besides spending some quality time with the BFF.
We took an awesome Foodie Tour throughout downtown Seattle. It was so cool! We went to about seven different places and walked a mile and a half. So really we didn’t gain any calories, because we burned them all off with the walking. Right? Oh and I have to mention our tour guide, Brett, he was pretty spectacular as well.
Places we chowed down:
The Yellow Leaf Cupcake Co. - We ate the pancakes with bacon cupcake and the tomato soup cupcake (not as tomatoey as you would think, like at all)
Serious Pie - We ate the Truffle Pizza and Margherita Pizza.
Chan - Korean Fusion – We ate braised short rib and a spicy pork slider. We also had a Ginger Makgeoli, which has ginger rice wine, ginger and lime. I was not all that impressed with it on the tour, but we went back to Chan (as you can see we hated it)and tried the drink again and loved it.
La Bunoa Tavola - All things truffles, seriously.
Il Bistro - Seafood risotto, made with fresh seafood from Pikes Place. It was pretty legit.
Pike Brewing - We tried the Kilt Lifter and an IPA. I do not like IPA’s, but heard from a reliable IPA source that it was good. They also paired the beers with cheese from the Mt. Townsend Creamery, that were delicious.
Von’s Gusto Bistro - Salmon Cake. This was probably my least favorite. Not because it wasn’t good, but I had just been so wowed by everything else.
Gelatiamo - The raspberry sorbet and chocolate chip gelato. Both were delicious and tasted even better when mixed together.
The Foodie Tour was a very cool way to tour the city and get to eat great food that we probably wouldn’t have gotten to. I highly recommend it!
If you like big orbs of glass and who doesn’t? You must check out the Chihuly Garden and Glass. You have to sign up for a timeframe to get into the museum so don’t expect that just because you got there at a certain time you’ll be getting in.
Pretty flippin’ sweet!
We also did some exploring of Port Townsend and were told by the lovely lady that, “There is nothing going on today, you came on the wrong day…” Okay then…
Well we DID find some cool stores to visit aaaaannnd a lighthouse!
Also some super strong kelp. I mean…look at it! It’s attached to a rock!
It was an awesome trip and I’m kinda glad Virginia Beach got a ton of snow so I could spend some time with my best friend. I mean I wasn’t mad about it…
Oh and we saw the gum wall.
