Baker's Seattle Metro, Sunset Hill, United States, Washington, West Coast Seattle
A hidden gem: Baker's. This is a place for cocktails, small plates and making new friends. Basically a "local" watering hole in the Sunset Hill area of Seattle. It's one of those places
Saffron Previous post Walla Walla WA Outstanding dining experience: Saffron. Bills itself as Mediterranean but it's far more expansive that that term would suggest. Choices range from pasta to seafood to steak. We had 2 starters: the Merguez Sausage and the Tabbouleh. The Merguez had Moroccan lamb sausage Center Himalayan Noodles, Clockwise: momos, pikora and Naan Seattle Metro, Tangletown, United States, Washington, West Coast Seattle Nepalese in the neighborhood: Himalayan Sherpa House. Interesting menu with items you'll recognize...naan and gulab jamun but others that you won't...momo and Himalayan noodles. So, try something different. My choices were the momo...dumplings with pork, Himalayan veggie noodles, veggie pakora and onion Black Diamond Bakery Rest of Washington, United States, Washington, West Coast Black Diamond WA A cyclist must stop: Black Diamond Bakery. Established in 1902 and it's still here so you know it has to be good! Their building takes up most of "downtown" Black Diamond so it's hard to miss. The backdrop? Mount Rainier...beautiful spot. We Hooked Montana, United States, West Coast Bozeman MT Sushi spot downtown: Hooked. New option for raw fish that opened in Feb 2021. There is a sushi bar in the back with tables as you enter. The menu is heavy on rolls and a bit light on nigiri and sashimi. Also Pizza Campania Montana, United States, West Coast Bozeman MT Another pizza option: Pizza Campania. Not on Main Street like many of the options but this spot is located just north near the fairgrounds. The pizzas are wood fired and the crust was nicely crisp with the edges, as expected, toasted in
