Acapulco Fresh in Kenmore near Seattle

Should have blogged this sooner! Back in November we really enjoyed the food at Acapulco Fresh (6016 NE Bothell Way, Kenmore WA 98028-9403, 425 482-0334) in Kenmore near Seattle.

Much better than the typical greasy, heavy pseudo Tex-Mex food we get here. Real Mexican. Fresh salsas; great variety and large flavour selection. Wonderful fish tacos (US $6.25) and in fact everything we tried was delicious! Mmmm!


SaabKen's First Visit: Thai Ginger in Seattle

Saab Ken, one of our readers, sends this report in about his first visit to one of the Thai Ginger restaurants in the Seattle area!

Thanks, Ken!


Than Brothers Pho Restaurant Cream Puffs

Boy oh boy do the cream puffs aka "banh choux a la creme" at the Than Brothers Pho Restaurant chain in Everett and Seattle look great. (Link via Better Living Through Software). Anybody know where I can get these cream puffs in Vancouver? If so, please let us know!


El Gitano in Burlington, Washington

We just came back from a week in Cancun, Mexico and already we miss the sunshine and real Mexican food!

So it was nice to see Anne Garber's Evalu8 review of El Gitano in Burlington, Washington. It sounds like an excellent way to get our Mexican food fix.

We will check it out as soon as we can.

Dept: is a Seattle based weblog about food.

It started this August and seems to be (of all the food weblog type sites) that I have seen, the closest to VanEats. is a labour of love put out by people who are food-obsessed (or wai sik) like ourselves and who are not in the food industry.

I found out about the site because they linked to us on their links page!


Piroshky Piroshky in Seattle

To close off our Seattle stories from last weekend, while we were at Pike Place Market last Saturday, we tried the wonderful sweet and savoury goods at Piroshky Piroshky (1908 Pike Place Seattle, WA 98101 (206)-441-6068 It's a small bakery run by Russian immigrants where everything is freshly prepared on premises.

Both the sweet and savoury piroshkys (which are like little rolls or pies) were delicious (nice light pastry and yummy fillings).


German Food at the People's Pub in Ballard

By accident, I stumbled upon the website of The People's Pub in Ballard (a suburb of Seattle).

The next time we go to Seattle, we just have to go to this place! The menu makes me drool! Talk about memories of Germany!


Mini-mini review: Chutneys Queen Anne in Seattle

Chutneys Queen Anne (in the Queen Anne neighbourhood of Seattle) is a nice restaurant. Nice decor, cloth napkins. Not the kind of place you'd expect to have delicious Indian food!

The food is great! In particular the spinach mushroom chicken and the murgh chicken are outstanding. And if you go there, you must order the curried mussels appetizer! The sauce is heavenly.
