I watch this happen all the time: Somebody posts, asking where to find something, and the eventual thread is always about how its better elsewhere.
Well, folks. We live in Seattle. And I for one, LOVE it. I enjoy the variety of food. Yeah maybe my chinese would be better if I lived in Vancouver. My pastrami better in New York, my mexican better in California (where I understand burritos come with french fries in them).
But when people post here, they are looking for something in SEATTLE. Not advice on where to get it when they go to NY or Kansas or the Moon.
So this thread is two fold. In addition to bitching about that, this is a place for you to tell me what you get better elsewhere in the world, and also where your closest version of that in seattle is.
I'll start: The Barbacoa I got in the mountains in Queretaro in Mexico was unreal. I understand there is a store in greenwood that serves traditional style barbacoa on sundays, but I used to work on weekends and have yet to try it.
