Seattle Restaurant: Serious Pie (Virginia Street)

If you search online for popular restaurants in Seattle, Serious Pie is always on the list. Known for its Neopolitan pizzas, it manages to attract curious diners who are willing to bear the long wait. Well, the fact that it is one of Tom Douglas’ restaurants has also contributed to its popularity.

Seattle Restaurant: La Carta de Oaxaca

Mexican food is one of the cuisines that I’ve come to like during my studies in the states. Burrito, taco and quesadilla are some of my favorite Mexican dishes. After visiting Tacos el Gordo and El Camión, I continued my search for authentic Mexican food.

As the 2012 winner of Best Mexican Restaurant in Seattle, La Carta de Oaxaca had immediately caught my attention. And since it was conveniently located in Ballard (where we spent most of our evenings), we decided to visit the place.

The restaurant was nuts at dinner hours. Inevitably, we had to wait in line before being seated. Luckily, the famous Hot Cake Molten Chocolate Cakery was just next door. To enjoy the best of both worlds and use our time effectively, we split into 2 groups – one waited for a table at La Carta de Oaxaca and one picked up the orders from the dessert store. We had no problem at all for having hot chocolate cake as our appetizer 😛 Click to read more!

Seattle Restaurant: Bitterroot

Serving the best BBQ in Seattle, Bitterroot is a hot spot for BBQ connoisseurs and barhoppers. At dinner time, it is almost impossible to secure a table without any waiting. Even though we were told to expect a 40-mins wait time, we decided to give it a try. At the end, we managed to get in within 10 mins! Click to read more!

Seattle Restaurant: Sweet Iron

Our friends insisted on taking us to Sweet Iron for breakfast. After having the Belgian waffles from Nero in Vancouver, I am not even sure if I could find anything that is up to the standard. However, one friend claimed that Sweet Iron made the best waffles he has ever had in his life so I agreed to give it a try. Click to read more!

Seattle Restaurant: Westward

What comes to your mind when you hear the word “seafood”? Sashimi? King crab legs? Clam chowder? After our delightful tasting experience at Rodney’s Oyster House and Oyster Bar, we once again sought out fresh slurping oysters on our Seattle trip.

Seattle is one of the best places in U.S. for people who love oysters. There are abundant oyster bar restaurants for your selection: The Walrus and the Carpenter, Elliot’s Oyster House, Shuckers, Taylor Shellfish Farms, just to name a few. If you are looking to enjoy oysters with great water views as backdrop, I would recommend dining at Westward. Click to read more!

Seattle Restaurant: Kimchi House

Unlike any major cities in Canada, it is relatively easy to find restaurants in U.S. that serve huge portions of good food at affordable prices. Seattle is no exception. You can enjoy excellent food even with a tight budget. Want to know where to eat? Read previous post to find out more!

Today, I will show you a restaurant we found in Ballard that specializes in affordable, modern Korean food.  Click to read more!

Seattle Restaurant: Musashi’s

We made it our goal to eat as much sushi as we could when we were in Seattle because, you know, it is not easy for us Albertans to get fresh seafood. However, after having the freshest, most exquisite sushi at Shiro’s, it is pretty difficult to find any other restaurant that’s up to that standard. Sometimes I was not even sure if our palate got more refined, or the food was just bad.

On our last day in Seattle, we took a short trip from Ballard to Wallingford to check out Musashi’s, a Japanese restaurant that was highly rated on Yelp and Urbanspoon for its sushi.
