I'm about to embark on a road trip of the NW. I'm heading from Portland to Seattle and ultimately up to Vancouver and then further east into Canada. This is my first trip to that part of the country and am very excited!
I'll be spending a day and a half in Seattle and then two nights with my uncle in Bellingham. We may take another trip back to Seattle for the day. I eat everything, but am very interested in food that screams Washington. I really want to try geoduck, lots of oysters, all types of salmon, clams, fresh fruit, Dungeness crab, breweries, good coffee, and anything else that I'm missing. I am also a big ice cream connoisseur.
I'm also looking for recommendations between Seattle and Bellingham and between Bellingham and Vancouver, as we will have to make some sort of food stop between the two cities. We always have to stop for food.
This is what I have come up with so far: happy hour at Elliott's Oyster Bar (is this 50 cent deal too good to be true?), Beecher's Cheese, Salumi, The Crumpet Shop, Matt's in the Market or Steelhead, Lunchbox Laboratory, Shiro's, Lowell's, Mallard Ice Cream (in Bellingham). We are all for doing a small little bite here and there to try as much as possible with maybe one full meal at dinner.
We of course will spending some time at Pike's Peak Market. We may also visit the EMP and hope to drive out to Mt. Rainier as well. We're very ambitious!
All help is greatly appreciated. And I promise a full report upon my return. Thanks in advance.
