The Tummy Hit List – Seattle, WA

At this time of the day tomorrow, I will be happily seated at Meat & Bread in Vancouver, BC with a glass of wine and a sandwich, sitting alone near the window and impressing strangers with my apparent lack of a gag reflex by swallowing said sandwich whole. Solo travel is so romantic, no?

But today, I am still in San Francisco, packing and mentally preparing myself for my week-long feast. First stop is Vancouver, BC but after that? Seattle, WA woohoo!

Seattle, you sexy beast, you.

Like Vancouver and San Francisco, Seattle is a major coastal city with a lot of water everywhere. Like, a lot. To the west of the city is Puget Sound, a run off the Pacific Ocean, and to the east, Lake Washington. It’s all good though, because that means Seattle produces some of the freshest seafood on the West Coast!

Fresh seafood is one of the greatest joys of my life, outside of social justice and napping. There’s just nothing quite like eating something that had to die that day for you to consume, you know? It’s beautiful. It’s American. Perhaps I’ve said too much. Anyway, here is the list.

(As stated in my previous Vancouver Tummy Hit List post, this is not a hard and fast list at all – I will go wherever my tummy takes me!)

Seattle, WA

Progressive Happy Hour at Elliot’s Oyster House @ Pier 56

Fresh-shucked oysters on the half -shell every Monday-Friday are $1/each from 3 – 4 PM, $1.50/each from 4 – 5 PM and $2/each from 5 – 6 PM! Guess what I’ll be doing this Friday at 3 PM? Just guess.

Oysters are a reminder from god that s/he loves us and wants us to be happy.

Dinner at the Walrus and the Carpenter @ 4743 Ballard Ave NW

One of the most famous restaurants Seattle, serving up scrumptious seafood,  delicious drank and lovely decor. The only thing missing? My fat ass, sitting at that counter, eating everything I can reach.

Paseo Caribbean Restaurant @ 6226 Seaview Ave NW

I’m an atheist and don’t believe in heaven, but I think biting into this sandwich would make me reconsider.

I like sandwiches, okay???

And much, much more!

Sweet baby jesus, doesn’t all that food look so good? Sometimes I can’t tell if I’m aroused or hungry anymore. Oh well, either way I’m almost there! Almost. There.
