Eating My Way Through Seattle (part 1)
Well the title of this blog pretty much sums it up! Last week I took a four day trip to Seattle with my boyfriend. This being my first visit to the Emerald City and I was super excited to visit the market and taste all the goodies. I love to explore any downtown on foot, so upon arrival off we trekked for a happy hour cocktail/appetizer. After a long flight, all I want to do is eat..don't you?! Now even though I shlepped my camera pack with me everywhere on this trip and have the back muscles to prove it...I didn't get pics of every dish. Mainly due to eating most of it before my camera left the bag..whoops! But, I will share with you all of my yummy adventures. (On my next trip I will be sure to pack flash for indoor shots.)
First stop..the Yard House, hello Happy Hour beer flight and fried calamari! New state with lots of breweries means sipping multiple flavors:) The chosen four were: House Honey Blonde (um honey duh had to!!), Beaver PB, Pauline Hefe-Weizen, and the Alaskan White. Loved the calamari, big pieces and roasted jalapeño tartar..whoa! Not a drop or a crumb was left.
With full bellies and restless legs we headed to the Pike Place Market to explore.(Check out more Seattle Hot Spots). Everyone has told me to visit the Pike Fish Market to watch them throw the fish while singing sea shanties. If my hotel had a stove or grille, you can bet your butt I would have stocked up on crab legs, rock fish, and shrimp! The good news is that they ship nationwide, score!!
Pike Fish definitely blew me away with their fresh supply and outgoing personalities. These guys know how to charm the crowd:) Its obvious they love their jobs. Next time, I want to catch a fish!!
