Cool noodles from Country Dough in @pikeplacepublicmarket. So happy they went back to their original menu (plus a few goodies), serving those delicious hand-cut noods Szechuan-style๐ŸŒถ๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ. Hot & sour, these noods are cut wide & thick, and super slippery in texture. The contrast of numbing spiciness + ice cold noodles is something worth walking through the crowds and craziness that is Pike Place Market on the weekends.

Pull this photo from my massive photo library (AKA the depths of my phone). Tortellini in broth. This was part of a wine dinner pairing with Spring Valley Vineyards and @local360_sea. This was by far my favorite bite of the evening. The broth flavorful and rich; the pasta perfectly Al dente with chew and delight.

@local360_sea does special dinner here and there (and not to be missed), but if you haven't already, you should go in for dinner or happy hour at the least. Chef Scott and his team are masterful in the kitchen. Their approach and appreciation for the bounty of the PNW rings true from preparation to taste.


Happy Cinco De Mayo! ๐ŸŒฎ๐ŸŒฎ๐ŸŒฎ Whereas I didn't celebrate the day so much, I did stop off at my favorite Mexican dive for an order of Barbacoa Tacos. Got so much love for the folks at @mamascantina in Belltown. Roasted pork marinated in a medley of spices and slow cooked to a tender perfection. Just a lil' bit of onion & cilantro, that's all you need! ๐Ÿ‘Œ Mama still got it, baby!

Still got a giveaway going, check out my last post and enter. It ends tomorrow! Five winners will be chosen!

Spanish Octopus Fried Rice from @lecosho. More like #fuckthatsdelicious Fried Rice from @lecosho.

Y'all already know what it is and how I feel about this dish, so 'nuff said.

But S/O to @tribecalledwesterfield and his team. They make good food. Food We Like.

"Napoleon, give me some of your tots!" - a quote kids today may never know ๐ŸŽฌ๐ŸŽฅ Going to @maslowsseattle tonight for their Burgers 'n Brews event, first of a series of events they plan to host. They plan to feature two signature burgers to be paired with a rotating lineup of local beer. Tonight it is Snoqualmie Valley Brewing. Should be fun! And hopefully, I'll find some tots.... #Obalicious #tots #notthots

Just admiring fine Bourbon in immaculate glasswear, NBD ๐Ÿฅƒ

Had a blast this afternoon catching up and masterminding with two incredible content creators and friends @jake.on.the.rocks & @stephanieforrer. We laughed, told stories and shared sushi and spirits from the good folks at @libertybar. If I lived on Capitol Hill, I'd be at this bar ALL THE TIME! I was especially pleased when I saw they had Yellowstone from @limestonebranch! I'll be going back to get some sushi again soon. Join me next time?

Happy 4/20 y'all! I'll been working all day and will be hosting a food tour for @savorseattle at 4:20, so put one in the air for me family!!! One of my fav burger spots is serving a 420 inspired menu today! Check out @feedcoburgers for $4.20 bites and $10 signature burgs like this one -The Ring of Fire! Got to preview it a few days ago, and it's Fuego!!! ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Have y'all ever been to @local360_sea? I've been poppin' in here more and more lately, and I got to say, the food here is BOMB! They take sustainability to a new level, sourcing ingredients from farms and producers within 360 miles of the restaurant. These roasted rutabagas over rutabaga puree were divine. I'm over here thinking, "I could totally be a vegetarian if I ate veggies that always tasted this good" ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜‚. Going back tonight for a Winemaker Dinner with Spring Valley Vineyards winermaker Serge Laville, who will be pouring wines along with a tasting menu by Executive Chef Scott Emerick. ๐Ÿท๐Ÿฅ‚ #Obalicious #local360 #sustainableeating #rutabaga

Wine โœ”๏ธ Got to check out a unique new dining experience by my awesome friend and chef @justinkhanna and @sri.bella.foods in the Revenna neighborhood on Thursday night. The theme was #Secretdatenight, and it didn't disappoint. Three courses to be shared with your date + communal table with other couples. This was the first of a series of secret date nights they will be offering, with the next one being next Thursday. I've added the link to my bio, or go check out @sri.bella.foods for more info.

A photo of the main course we were served, shared between each couple.

Trying to get eat more clean lately (keyword "trying"). While most of my eats haven't been so IG worthy (my plating sucks), I was reminded of some delicious healthy eats I've had not too long ago, including this seared halloumi + apple salad from @qualityathleticsseattle. I know ,I know - I talk about these guys A LOT. But shoot if the spot is killah, it's killah ๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿด. With fresh arugula and organic radishes, it's topped with hazelniuts and a @kozliksmustard sweet & smokey mustard vinaigrette.

Swipe right to see the beauty of this chicken pot pie from @sweetnsavorypie in Fremont BEFORE I pull it apart ๐Ÿ˜‰

Did you have a bad cook as a parent? I love my pops, but man - he cooks a terrible pork chop (now his fried rice, a different story!). ๐Ÿ˜‚ It's funny cuz as a kid I didn't know better. They were cooked always well-done (maybe more) and never really seasoned except for some commissary Montreal streak seasoning. It wasn't till I was an adult and eating pork chops in restaurants by chefs (and those with a pallet) that I realized my reality. ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ Eating tonight with my dad, and what does he cook - PORK CHOPS. I don't complain though. I just appreciate the time I get to spend with him... And the bottle of @kozliksmustard I stashed in his fridge. This, right here: #uglydelicious

Fremont bowl with my friends @jenktorres and Mario about 2 weeks back. I'm sure y'all have slid thru or heard of this rice bowl joint already, but I finally had to go enjoy it for myself. All I got to say is #fuckthatsdelicious.

Hey Hungry Homies! Ya miss me? Sorry I've been MIA, been taking a break from posting, as I've been working like crazy! But ya know ya boi still eats! Have you heard of @maslowsseattle? It's a @_farestart joint, and I got to join some of my close Taste Buds (@mr_beck_ @jessestrada @grubbinseattle @stephanieforrer) there just the other day.

The food was great! The dining room is large and spacious, perfect for large group dining, and the food was easily sharable with lots to choose from for those with dietary restrictions. Even the bar had some great cocktails (more on that some other day ๐Ÿ˜‰). Dessert had my heart though! Loved this PB&J Semifreedo, topped with Nutella powder, raspberry coulis, and fresh strawberries. I'd literally go back just for that.

More importantly, I'd dine here again just to know that the money I spend here goes back to programming to help men & women hard on their luck with job training and apprenticeships in the culinary arts. They are even starting a bartending track, with their first bartender ready to graduate soon! I'm happy to patron any organization that put people first, and I hope you decide to do so too.
