Seattle Hounds,

I am an avid foodie, currently living in the desert southwest of Phoenix, AZ. That all changes next week as I am moving to Washington. I will be working in downtown Seattle and living in Bremerton. It suddenly hit me last night that my 100+ list of restaraunts that I wanted to try here in the Valley of the Sun will no longer do many any good except on return trips to see friends.

Before you suggest it, I am going to search the board here and I am sure I will find all kinds of nuggets, but I also thought it wouldn't hurt to let you know what kinds of things I like and let you experts jump start my effort. You did me right last summer when I asked for a recommendation on the Kitsap penninsula and I was steered towards Xinhs in Shelton. Really enjoyed that!

Basically I like just about all types of foods. Typically stay away from chains as much as possible. Have a special fondness for that divey, family run, whole in the wall ethnic place that serves up incredibly authentic fare. I do enjoy fine dining, but not the high price to impress places, but a place like Binkley's in Cave Creek, AZ where the food and experience are worth the price. As far as location, I am willing to travel just about anywhere in the Seattle Metro area for a good meal, but obviously would give preference over places close to where I live or work. In addition, cool downtown lunch spots and good brewpubs in the area would be cool as well.

Looking forward to moving up there and experiencing the Seattle food scene.
