Bremerton WA

On the way home: Greek to go. Found this place near the ferry dock during the Blackberry festival and thought I’d give it a try since the seafood paella looked...

Bremerton WA

Mexican & Salvadorian: El Balcon. Basically a walk up takeaway place with a few tables on the sidewalk. Their specialty seems to be the burritos with about 20 to choose...

Bremerton WA

Post ride calories: Horse & Cow Bar & Grill. Didn’t think much about the name at the time but, rest assured, there is no horse on the menu. It’s Naval...

Arlington WA

What…Greek food in Arlington? Kafé Neo. Stopped by on the way home from a hike in the North Cascades and we needed some nourishment after a long day on the...

Coupeville WA

Post ride beer and brats: Penn Cove Taproom. We had a coupon from the Tour de Whidbey for a few bucks off so, why not. Expect beer from the Penn...

Seattle

Vietnamese in Lake City: Green Papaya. Only have takeaway so we used Grubhub this time since it’s fairly close to our home plus it gets great ratings. It didn’t disappoint....

Coupeville WA

Don’t judge a book by its cover: The Oystercatcher. From the street it looks like a burger and beer joint. Step up to the entrance and your impression doesn’t change....

Greenwater WA

Have wondered about this place for years: Naches Tavern. Apparently it’s been there for more than a century…I’m a bit slow on the visit. This experience was for a post...

A new old place: El Gaucho. It’s been a number of years since my last visit…and it’s not where it used to be! So, make sure you go to the...

Finally: Ravenna Brewing Co. I have been driving by this place since it opened several years ago and finally dropped by to give it a try. Might also have had...

Virtual restaurant: Molly’s Garden. You read it correctly…a virtual restaurant. Really, it’s a takeaway place using Shawn O’Donnell’s locations. Our order was from the Fremont location. The Molly’s Chicken Salad...

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...

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:...

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...

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...
