A year ago I was visiting friends in Seattle, and we managed to eat at seven different places in a day (Some of the places: Paseo, La Porta de la Oaxaca(sp?), Ocho, Senor Moose, Serious Pie, Versaci, a diner and a bakery in Ballard that I can't remember). I'll be returning with my wife and a good friend this weekend, and I'm hoping for a "psycho food fest, part 2."
Here are some questions and comments:
1. As I live in Hawai'i, I'm really not keen on eating Asian food--unless you think there is something really phenomenal (read: way better than anything I can get on O'ahu);
2. Restaurants that serve food I can't get in Hawai'i--or food that is not so great in Hawaii (e.g. Mexican) gets more points. In addition to great Mexican food, I'd love to try great Spanish/South American, African, or Southern food. Of course, I don't want to limit myself to these cuisines;
3. Yea or Nay on the following:
Sitka and Spruce
Walrus and Carpenter
4. Question regarding Salumi. Some people complain about the thickness of the bread, plus the skimpy portions of meat. I am concerned about this because it's the type of criticism I have of some sandwich places. Apologists of Salumi, let's hear from you on this.
5. We're arriving around midnight, and may be hungry. Any great late night meals that would could get fairly quickly that you recommend?
6. Any other "must eat" places you didn't mention.
I look forward to reading your comments! Mahalo, in advance.
