I'm trying to figure out some places in the seattle metro area that i need to visit/take my g/f to visit when she and i are up there at the end of june...she's going to school in LA and we've hit up quite a number of cheap-eats, ethnic and non-ethnic, in the LA area
my parents live in bellevue, so i luckily can try out some of these places before she visits. unfortunately i'm not from the area, so i only have a few chances to try out some of these places
Obviously i'll do some touristy stuff such as pike place...but i gather that for fresh seafood at affordable/reasonable prices, mutual fish is pretty much the places to go?
Also i'm guessing salumi is a must...but what about everything else? anything reasonably priced (say under 20/pp) that i should definitely try out/consider when she's up in seattle?
I did enjoy the little italian bakery next to mutual fish, as well as malay satay hut (a little americanized, but still ok). I just don't know what else there is ... i'm looking for semi-rare and affordable ethnic/pacific NW eats ... don't care about the setting, cleanliness, etc. .... just good food to remember/try out.
Oh btw, i will try out that homey japanese place thats gonna close when i'm up in seattle in a coupla weeks (on jackson close to qwest). thats the kinda place i'm looking for...
thanks for your help!
PS i'm also interested in ethnic markets with lots of goodies ... indian, italian, chinese, i'll take anything yall give me
