A slice of Sicily comes to Fremont
I haven’t been to Sicily, but I believe I came close to it with Agrodolce. Owner and mastermind Maria Hines—also behind Tilth and Golden Beetle—rattled off more history about Sicilian food and culture in five minutes than you’d learn in an undergrad history
Friendly staff and perfectly prepared food make for a delicious gyros experience.
Right when I stepped into Mr. Gyros, I knew I’d soon become a regular. The charming man behind the counter welcomed me as he took my order, and offered me a glass of mint tea on the house. He told me he and his brother own the place.
What’s better than a juicy, flavor-exploding pork sandwich? Nothing.
If you’re a seasoned Seattleite, Paseo may be old news. If not, stop reading and go there right now. This popular sandwich stop has two locations in Fremont and Ballard near Golden Gardens. Paseo is almost guaranteed to have a line, but it’s well worth the wait.
Dine in or delivery at this new Capitol Hill gem.
Lucky 8s China House has only been open for a few months, but the food and service is impressive. They offer traditional Americanized Chinese food, including pork bao, chow mein and spring rolls at a low price. The lunch menu allows you to choose three dishes from a menu of nine for only $8
SPAM sliders — need I say more?
What’s better than a meld of Korean and Hawaiian cuisine on the cheap? When it’s on wheels all over Seattle. Marination has a station on top of the QFC in Capitol Hill and a food truck in a different neighborhood every day of the week but Sunday.
Look no further – traditional Oaxacan food awaits you in Ballard.
I was beginning to lose hope that there’s any authentic Mexican food in Seattle. Low and behold, a friend took me to La Carta de Oaxaca in Ballard and my faith is restored. You won’t find gobs of cheese piled on runny refried beans here – the food is fresh, well-seasoned and to top it off, inexpensive. The place can get packed, but the food and wait are worth it.
Feel at home at this quaint crepe cafe.
Sitting at the bottom of Capitol Hill is Saley, a charming and funky crepe restaurant with both sweet and savory treats, and a selection of baguette sandwiches. I instantly felt welcome when I walked into the café as I was greeted by a smiling woman making crepes.
Eat for less at this hot spot eatery.
My parents were in town recently, and you know what that means – lots of good food. I wanted to try Purple for a long time and figured this would be the perfect opportunity because they’re huge wine lovers. I know what you’re thinking – “Purple and Dine on a Dime? It can’t be!” But it can.
A barbecue-inspired food truck rolls into Wallingford.
Parked on the corner of 45th St. and Thackeray Pl. sits Pinky’s Kitchen, a mobile food stop offering cheap sliders, macaroni and cheese and a choice of five barbecue sauces – the ultimate comfort food. A friend and I stopped in on a blistery Sunday night and were greeted with warm, smiling faces. Most people ordered their meals to go, but we were so hungry we took shelter in the tent set up next to the truck, and sunk our teeth in.
New watering hole offers craft beer and not-so-typical pub food.
Wallingford’s Tangletown neighborhood welcomes a restaurant and bar from the owners of Brouwer’s Café and Bottleworks. The Publican only opened a few weeks ago, but don’t be fooled by the modest exterior – business is booming inside.
