Seattle, WA – Crumble & Flake Patisserie

By

Crumble & Flake is opened by Pastry Chef Neil Robertson formerly at MistralKitchen and Seattle’s highly acclaimed fine dining restaurant Canlis. It opened in May last year so the hype and line ups have died down, but not substantially. It is still highly praised and frequented by locals and tourists alike and I’m glad I came after the rave.

Seattle, WA – Joule (Modern Korean Restaurant) – Part 2/2

By

There are Asian flavours, but for the most part it is catered for a Western clientele and palate. I wouldn’t compare it to any traditional Asian restaurant because that’s not what the restaurant is about. The ingredients are local and exotic and the ideas fresh so the menu is inspiring, but just do not expect authentic Asian cuisine.

A strong backbone and understanding of Korean cuisine and Asian ingredients definitely helps with Joule’s success. The style of the restaurant is supposed to be more like a casual steakhouse showcasing Korea’s love for beef with side dishes and tapas to accompany.

Seattle, WA – Spur Gastropub – Part 1/2

By

Nationally named as “Top Five Rising Chefs” by Gayot and “Rising Star Chefs” by Star Chefs, I had to try it. It was a casual, but still very sophisticated gastropub offering small plates that were best shared. It was nothing fussy, but still fancy and it felt more like a cocktails and wine place than a craft beer place.

Seattle, WA – Paseo (“Best Roast Pork Sandwich”)

By

I could smell roasted pork and tangy vinegar as soon as I got near. Paseo is a long time favourite in Seattle known for “the best sandwich in America”, or even “the best sandwich in the world”, which bothers me because I’m not a fan of “best of” lists. Anyway, last time I was here I got really lost and ended up at Local 360. This time, I had to find it.
