I don't know why, but every time I say the words "cherry pie" in my head, I say it in my best imitation of a Southern drawl (churry pahhh). (Did it come from a movie? It's subconsciously implanted itself. Anyway.) This was #cherrypie from #BernicesBakery in #Missoula in #Montana, which seems to be a bit of a local favourite. I'm not a huge fan of cherry filling in general, but that crust was pretty amazing - really nicely caramelised (brown butter?) and brittle yet slightly flaky. No #soggybottoms here (that was a #GBBO reference btw 😝) #e_tingPNWroadtrip #e_tingMontana #pie #dessert

So, @foodandwine named @mollymoonicecream one of the best in the U.S. - the flavours were indeed intense (salted caramel is really salty, coffee tastes almost bitter in a good way, blueberry cheesecake basically tastes like frozen cheesecake!), but I thought the hard-hitting flavours lacked nuance - too much saltiness and not enough depth in the caramel, for instance. But I think having been to Jeni's recently (see #e_tingchicago), my #icecream expectations are now higher than ever... (Btw we had kid's scoops, which were still huge!) #🍨 #🍦 #e_tingseattle #seattle #e_tingPNWroadtrip

By the sheer number of recommendations for @manolinseattle, I should have guessed how "hot" it was. There was a bit of a wait, but we were able to sit outside with cocktails - all good. This was another #seafood-focused example of #PNWcuisine, again small plates, not unlike Walrus (see a couple posts before). Swipe for some of the dishes we had: smoked salmon; black rice with squid and chorizo (my fave this meal); #rockfish ceviche; #albacore (again!); entrance of the restaurant just after sunset. #e_tingSeattle #seattle #e_tingPNWroadtrip

Grabbing a bite at @pikeplacepublicmarket: Fishwich (with halibut) and a showstopping potato and bacon soup on the side at @mattsinthemarket. #e_tingSeattle #pikeplacemarket #e_tingpnwroadtrip #πŸ”

Steamed clams with lentils, curry, lamb "bacon" and sorrel at @thewalrusbar. The surrounding streets all look industrial, so it was quite a surprise to see so many people here on a random Monday evening. Opened by celebrated local chef-restauranteur Renee Erickson, James Beard Award Northwest recipient 2016, #TheWalrusandTheCarpenter is essentially an #oysterbar with a menu of simple, well-executed small plates (veg, #seafood and meat) showcasing seasonal and mostly local ingredients. #e_tingSeattle #visitseattle #seattlefood #seattlefoodie #seattleeats #e_tingPNWroadtrip

First real meal in #Seattle - light dinner at @sitka.and.spruce. Swipe: Crab eclair (was expecting a tiny bite, but a moon pie sized eclair came, haha America); grilled #albacore salad; roasted salmon; the kitchen and hearth. Been wondering what #PNWcuisine is, and after this meal I'm pretty sure great #seafood has something to do with it! #e_tingseattle #visitseattle #seattlefood #seattlefoodie #seattleeats #e_tingPNWroadtrip

"I like big boats and I cannot lie". Happy belated birthday G, the only person who says "no" to ALL my food suggestions. (#throwback to #Sydney earlier this year, on a lunchtime #cruise, our Christmas present from @dizzy__lizzie_ & @rodrrico)

The iconic Omotesando Koffee in Tokyo is now (a structurally sound) #KoffeeMameya, a standing #coffeebar/takeout stand with a constantly changing menu of beans by roasters all around the world, brewed in different ways depending on the bean. Interestingly, the pourover method of choice here was the #kalitawave (swipe to see). Beans from our very own @cuppingroomhk was representing the day I was there, as well as one of my faves, @tokado_coffee from Fukuoka. I got the Costa Rica Grace Honey #coldbrew. #e_tingcoffee #e_tingtokyo #hkcoffee #tokyocoffee #fukuokacoffee

As jaded and spoilt as I might be, I still can't resist a champagne monogrammed just for me (swipe)! Thanks @krugchampagne for the #KrugGrandCuvee and mushroom growing kit! #KrugID #KrugxMushroom #mediagift #πŸ₯‚#🍾 #drinkstagram

Den salad, with vegetables prepared in different ways - raw, fried, blanched as chef saw fit. At any other restaurant, the smiley face carrot (swipe to see) would have been too much, but at Den, when you see @zaiyuhasegawa and his team's cute, smiling faces, it works. P.S. can you spot the ant? #e_tingtokyo @blacksheeprestaurants #tokyoeats #tokyofood #jimbochoden

Eel sashimi, given a quick sear on #binchotan, tableside at modern #izakaya KAN. #meguro #e_tingtokyo @blacksheeprestaurants #tokyoeats #tokyo #ikejiriohashi
