I have read through the chowhound archives, but I still beg you to help me, a former Belltown woman. My new husband lives in Redmond and he hates to drive to (or in) Seattle. He's from some small town in New Hampshire and has never lived in a city.
I'm 50something years old. I don't cook. I burn everything. It's too late to start now.
Tell me anyplace: restaurant, precooked food, sandwich stand, u-pick veggies, drive-though (just kidding). I need anyplace with decent food that I can get to without crossing a bridge. Please also tell me what you ordered at the restaurant.
My husband and I travel. We go from heavenly pastries and asian food in Paris and chocolate in Bruge to ..... this desert...this hellhole of fast food ghettos. I'll take any suggestions...Woodinville? Bellevue? Kirkland? Duvall? Carnation? I just ate about a pound of u-pick raspberries from Remlinger farms because it tasted like real food which hadn't been nuked in a 7-11. There is only so much I can take. I would jump off the roof if I could find a decent bagel, a French pastry with good whipped cream (and I would even go across the bridge for that), a plate of eastside spagetti that doesn't taste like tin-can tomatos. Help. Have pitty on me. Toss me a bone.
