Munching My Way Around Seattle

By Mark Wiens No Comments

In the footsteps of the foody himself, Anthony Bourdain, the munching tour of Seattle unravelled.  I had seen a few of the eateries on television and had thoroughly vowed to myself as well as having all my friends hold me accountable to partake as soon as I could next step foot out of the Seattle airport.

Owned by the parents of chef Mario Batali, in downtown Seattle, we started off with a few meatballs, sausage, a lamb steak, and some fried salami from the famed restaurant, Salumi.  The flavors stunned my buds and put me into a state of calmed comfort, making me feel right at home.


The next location brought us to the famous Pike Place Market and a small Russian bakery, Piroshky Piroshky.  The flaky crusts and the delicate meat filled insides were scrumptious, displaying the intricate labors of the bakers’ handiwork.

From what the critiques suggested, the best pizza in Seattle, Pagliacci, followed, ending the day in style.


The next day the festivities began again with a quick trip to China town, and a random Chinese BBQ house for some Chow Funn, char siu, and duck.


There was more, Ethiopian was added to the repertoire later that day, and most likely a few things I have neglected to mention due to food euphoria as well.

The weather was cold, the scenery good, the food, wonderful!
