Looking for pupusas!
I love pupusas! I just ordered delivery from Guanaco’s in the U District last week, and while I think they do a great job, I’ll say pupusas, like tacos, are best eaten on site instead of takeout or delivery. Salvadorean Bakery in White Center does an excellent version, too. And there’s a place in Auburn called Belen I haven’t been to, but I’m dying to check out.
Where can I find Korean soft serve with honey and/or honeycomb?
As far as I know, you can’t yet find this here, which is such a bummer… But based on the huge rise in popularity of bingsoo, hopefully Korean soft serve is just around the corner!
Which restaurants are serving a delicious Thanksgiving feast this year?
Hotel restaurants are always a great bet for Thanksgiving dinner promotions, so check out Outlier, Rider, Conversation, Currant Bistro and Goldfinch Tavern, just to name a few of the downtown hotspots.
Nice restaurants in South Lake Union?
Most of the spots in South Lake Union are designed to be quick, but Willmott’s Ghost in the Spheres is classy, gorgeous and the food is amazing. Mbar or Bar Harbor would be great picks, too, for something a little more luxurious.
Favorite place for inexpensive date/girls night activity?
There are a number of distilleries like Westland that offer relatively inexpensive tours and also tasting opportunities, which is fun with a group of friends or on a date. Taking advantage of happy hour always makes a meal and drink out less expensive—Momiji has a great one.
Best Japanese food?
This is hard, as there are great separate restaurants for sushi, donburi, ramen, udon, soba… the list goes on. I’ll say Adana is one of my favorite really well-rounded Japanese spots, and I really like Yoroshiku for general Japanese food, too.
Will a new restaurant be opening in the old Roosevelt Ale House space?
I wish I knew! I’ve been watching the space closely, but haven’t seen any signs… If anyone out there knows anything, let me know!
