At least that’s what we think. We’ve been here a full 4 days, and we’ve eaten at 1,2,3,4,5,6… restaurants/bakeries. I actually had to take a break from eating out because I felt as if my veins replaced my blood with lard. Seattle definitely has some great eateries. Our particular neighborhood is pretty much dominated by Tom Douglas eateries. So, no surprise that we visited two of his restaurants in our first few days here.
We started with his “serious” establishments. We grabbed our first dinner at Serious Pie in Downtown, just around the corner from our place. We ordered the mixed baby greens salad, a few beers, and a mushroom pizza with truffle cheese. The result: Yummy, cheesy, goodness!
The following morning we decided to try Serious Biscuit. We had no idea that it was located within a larger Serious Pie restaurant closer to Lake Union. This location wasn’t too far from us either. (DANGEROUS)
I’d say the biscuit is even yummier than the pizza. I got the ham, egg, and cheese biscuit, and S got the fennel sausage biscuit. The first bite took me back to Christmas Dinner. It was the perfect combo of salty and sweet. The fennel sausage biscuit was only almost as good.
As if we weren’t feeling fat enough, today we visited Matt’s in the Market. We heard they got all their bread from a local bakery called Macrina. Of course, I had to get the porkstrami. It did not disappoint. Just look at the fresh baked marble rye it’s on.
With one bite, I fell in love. Sauerkraut and 1000 island dressing…yummmy! After eating our tasty sammies, we decided to actually check out Macrina bakery. So we walked down the road a ways and got even more food! One cinnamon roll and lemon bar later, we are in food coma.
I hear that Seattle is home to lots of vegetarians and vegans. I wanna know where they eat, cause all I’m finding is delicious animal everywhere!
