Dinner 7/25/2014: Island Soul Restaurant, 4869 Rainier Avenue S, Seattle
Me: Island Soul curry with chicken.
The fiance: Carribean jerk pork spare ribs.
Shared: Coconut corn muffin.
Hearty meals, generous portions, big flavor. We were surprised with how much we loved the coconut corn muffin … don’t think we could eat regular corn muffins after these!
Lunch 7/19/2014: Yeh Yeh’s Vietnamese Sandwiches, 14339 NE 20th Street, Bellevue, WA
Grilled pork banh mis and taro bubble tea.
One of our followers suggested Yeh Yeh’s to us a couple of months ago (you posted anonymously, so if you’re reading this, thank you!). Solid classic banh mi sandwich (mine is pictured, sans cilantro) on a delicious crisp and chewy baguette.
The taro bubble tea was actually a slushie, so it was extremely refreshing.
Afternoon snack 7/18/2014: Piroshky Piroshky Bakery, 1908 Pike Place, Seattle
Shared: Smoked salmon pate piroshky.
Russian pastry meets Pacific Northwest’s favorite fish. This is one of the food items that every visitor to Seattle should try. The pastry is generously filled with a thick and creamy pate. The pastry itself is golden, crisp on the edges, and flaky. It’s a substantial size, so it’s great to share if you’re on a food crawl at Pike Place.
