Seattle Food Galore!

Went to Seattle with my bf  for 2 days and had a list of places that we should eat at!  We managed to stop by all of the places!
Warning: This post will be image heavy!
List of places I had in mind to try in the states:
  • Jack in the Box
  • Auntie Annes
  • L&L Hawaiian BBQ
  • Romano's Macaroni Grill
  • Kingfish Cafe
  • Macrina Bakery Cafe
  • Mae Phim Thai Cuisine
  • Le Panier
  • Pike Place Chowder
  • Maximus Minimus
First stop: Jack in the box
I always have to get my 3 mozzarella cheese sticks with marinara sauce.  I had a breakfast sausage croissant but it wasn't good. -__-  My bf had a sour dough steak melt, it was awesome! comparison.
got a small drink and it looks like a Canadian medium

Stopped by Auntie Anne's for a giant pretzel and a jumbo dog at Seattle Premium Outlet.

Also stopped by a Starbucks because we needed something to keep us going for the morning!

Next food stop is L&L Hawaiian BBQ!  It was kind of tasted like Korean/Chinese food.  It was extremely flavourful but a little dry and fatty.  The spam musubi was bizarre!  I will not buy the spam musubi again.
Location: 19709 Hwy 99, Ste F, Lynnwood, WA 98036

beef short ribs, chicken, rice and potato salad

Next place we ate at is at Romano's Macaroni Grill.  I personally really loved this place and I would definitely go back.  This particular location is at Alderwood Mall in Lynwood.

Went to Kingfish Cafe for dinner but apparently its closed! I will try it another time.  I have heard awesome things about this place.
Location: 602 19th Avenue East
Seattle, WA 98112-4009
Stopped by Macrina Bakery and Cafe for some desserts/baked goods.  The cake and cookies were so delicious!  I never tasted anything as good as these baked goods in Vancouver.  The cake is so moist and rich.  My bf really liked the cookie too.
Location: 615 West McGraw Street, Seattle, WA

Chocolate almond cake, apricot and chocolate cookie, banana chocolate/coffee muffin
so dense rich and moist
We ate at Mae Phim Thai Cuisine for dinner instead of Kingfish Cafe as Kingfish Cafe was closed.  Mae Phim was good!  I would go back, it was inexpensive and authentic.  The service wasnt the best though...perhaps next time I will do takeout!
Location: 94 Columbia Street  Seattle, WA 98104, United States

thai milk coffee
fried gyoza, spring rolls, chicken skewers
deep fried spring roll

peanut chicken and spinach with rice

The next morning we went to our next food stop which was Pike Place Chowder.  I will always love is the second time I have tried this place and the clam chowder is still as good as I remember..mmmmmmMMmmm
Location: 1530 Post Alley, Seattle, WA 98101

Bought a clam chowder and a crab sandwich

It was so goooooood
Enjoying the famous clam chowder
I bought take out clam chowder

Went to a second bakery called: Le Panier and bought macaroons and a slice of apricot pie.  It was heavenly..just as good as Macrina Bakery!  I will go back to both bakeries next time I stop by Seattle!
Location: 1902 Pike Place  Seattle, WA 98101, United States

diff flavours of macaroons
apricot pie!
Last stop in Seattle was at Maximus Minimus!  It was on tv..on the food network but I forgot what show.  It looks awesome but the taste wasn't for me.  It reminded me of the left over Chinese soup meat inside a bun marinaded in bbq sauce.  The truck was so cool was shaped like a pig!
Location: 2nd Avenue  Seattle, WA 98101, United States

Pig Cart!

  1. Jack in the box is amazing <3 So big and cheap and fattening! LOL

    1. LOL, agreed! Lucky it's not in Vancouver otherwise I would be eating there a lot and then get super

  2. lol it's called a Spam Musubi. I personally love it, but I guess it's cause I grew up with it. It's practically a state food back in Hawaii :)(we have it on the breakfast menu at Mcdonalds as well!) I suppose its an acquired taste though because I know many people who hate it. Cute blog by the way!

    1. lol..thanks for letting me know the correct term! I shall update my post accordingly. ;)

      Ahh...a staple food! It was strange to me as I never tried Hawaiian food before..perhaps I will appreciate it more if I try it more!

      Thanks for leaving a comment! I love reading comments!

  3. Hi. I gotta say I rly enjoy ur blog 8)
    I just wanted to say when I saw ur spam musubi comment I LoL.
    But it doesn't look appetizing. or like my friend said when i showed it to her "looks shitty" >> the spam looks old and overcook. n the nori too 8(.
    u need to come down to Hawaii n try some authentic spam musubi ;)

    1. Hi Carmen,

      We share the same name! lol..thank you for commenting and I am glad u enjoy reading my blog. I enjoy posting my pictures and reviews. :D

      The spam musubi that I tried was terrible....I took a bite just to try it and that was it, I threw the rest away. :( wasting food sucks but it was really dry....and strange... I am glad to know that the authentic version taste better! I shall visit Hawaii one day and try it again based on ur comment! LOL...u made a small change in my life! I am willing to retry this food item.

      Again, thanks for reading and your comment! ;)
