    Banks of Clear Lake in Indian Heaven: Mushrooms and Beer?

    by mtncorg Written Sep 6, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When hiking in the backcountry, you can either go minimalistic, which means you pack a couple of Power or Cliff Bars and maybe an apple - if you want the extra weight - or you go all out: cheeses, meats, a loaf of fresh bread, some wine and beer, water - don't get dehydrated! - and the appropriate glasses to go with your chosen beverages. Don't forget the cutting board, knife, picnic blanket and picnic partners. Of course, this means you will be carrying a little more weight.

    Favorite Dish: On today's menu, we enjoyed a very nice Belgian Tripel from the Trappist Abbey of Val Dieu. Along the way, a couple of forest mushrooms - one a prime king porcini and the other, a nice lemon porcini. The mushrooms were taken back for the posthike pizza.

    Mushrooms share the spotlight with Val Dieu Triple

    Tacos Guaymas: great Mexican in Burlington

    by Jonathan_C Written Sep 5, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What's this? A Tacos Guaymas in Burlington?!! We have a Tacos Guaymas three blocks from our house in Fremont and adore it. Coming back from a trip to mount Baker we stopped in and were delighted to find out that the owners are brothers. Martin, owner of the Burlington location, spices his food up a little more for his largely Mexican clientele.

    If you're ever coming back from a trip to the North Cascades you will want to stop in here.

    Grant's Brewpub: in honor of Bert Grant: Brewing Pioneer

    by richiecdisc Updated Nov 20, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The idea of the brewpub, a place were beer is brewed and served with food, needs little explanation but in 1982, it was an entirely novel idea. Bert Grand did just this in a small town in eastern Washington State called Yakima. It was one of the first craft breweries in all the United States and heralded the coming of a new age of beer. Housed in a historic train depot in a town noted for growing hops, I visited the brewing pioneer in 1994. It was one of the most memorable beer experiences I have ever had in the United States. There was something decidedly outback about Yakima and Grant's was the kind of pub I would imagine to be in such a place. What was nice is I didn't have to imagine it, it was there.

    Sadly, the brewery ran into hard times, was sold off, and went regional. The beers were suddenly available where I lived in South Florida but they never quite tasted the same without being hand-pumped from live casks as they had been at the pub. The small pub closed and Bert Grant passed away. A beer legend who have lived a long and illustrious life. From what I understand, a local hop farmer has opened a beer bar/restaurant where Grant's Brewpub once stood, and befittingly named it Bert's. If you are in Yakima, stop by. Take a deep breath. That's history you're smelling though it may be mixed pretty heavily with the locally grown hops.

    Favorite Dish: The beers were amazing especially the cask Scottish Ale and India Pale Ale. The Imperial Stout was to die for. RIP Bert Grant.

    The Boat Shed: Yummy seafood and water views

    by tahoesasha Updated Mar 26, 2005

    This is a special restaurant and bar located inside a converted boat shed overlooking the Manette Bridge in Bremerton. I dig the wooden plank floors and watching the Seattle ferry enter and exit the terminal across the bay.

    Cynthia's Pony Express Cafe: fabulous cream pies in Enumclaw

    by Jonathan_C Updated Aug 21, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're coming back to Seattle from the east side of Mt. Rainier (Chinook Pass, Sunrise, Crystal Mt.) you'll be driving on state route 410 to Enumclaw. Take the time to stop in this cute little town and don't leave without a visit to the Pony Express Cafe. The ambiance isn't anything to write home about but this is the place to get home made muffins, milk shakes and cream pies.

    Favorite Dish: The sandwiches and fries were perfectly adequate but the reason to come here is to endulge in milk shakes and pies. They served us giagantic pieces of the best chocolate cream and cocount cream pies we've had in maybe 20 years.

    Now, my mother in-law ran a Texas pie shop for four years so we know a thing or two about cream pies. Trust us when we say that the pies we had here are authentic, southern style cream pies that will melt in your mouth. There's clearly a good dose of lovin' that went into the baking of these pies!

    Phnom Penh Noodle Hous: tasty Cambodian

    by richiecdisc Updated Nov 20, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Phnom Penh Noodle House was one place I wanted to return to when in Seattle. I had been there in 1994 on my first trip to the city. It was my first experience with Cambodia food and in the interim I had been to Cambodia. It was only natural to want to go back and see how it stacked up. This small unassuming hole-in-the-wall is clean, cheap and conveniently located in the heart of Seattle's Chinatown. This is a cheap area to park and it's close enough to walk to Pike Place Market.

    Favorite Dish: Favorite Dish: We both had piping hot bowls of Goo Naw Noodle. This spicy Cambodian stew had tender slices of beef and wide rice noodles in a spicy broth. Though not as thick as similar stews we had while traveling in Cambodia, it was very tasty and filling. Make sure to order some Chinese donuts for dunking. These are literally strips of fried dough that go very well with the soup. They are not on the menu so just ask for them. We finished up with two iced coffees. Everything including tip was $25.

    by Pamela_Peace Written Sep 2, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Palisade Restaurant was recommended to us by a local, and they were right on. Food and service were impicable, tiered flooring gives almost every table a great view of Elliott Bay and the beautiful harbor, and an indoor saltwater fish pond weaves through the lounge area and under a small bridge.
    Unforgettable view of the bay, the city skyline and Mt. Rainier

    Favorite Dish: Seared tuna with ginger and sticky rice

    Randy's Pier 61: Randy's Pier 61

    by WFTR Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Randy's is one of the most recommended restaurants in Anacortes. The food and service are both very good, and the atmosphere is perfect for experiencing Anacortes. I've always gone at off-peak times so that I could sit at one of the booths right by the window. From this point, I could watch small boats and bigger ships by the waterfront. I've seen seals playing in the water by Randy's small dock, and gulls or herons are often fishing by the dock. Randy's does an okay steak, but in five weeks of dining all around the Anacortes area, I never really found a great steak. Otherwise, everything at Randy's is great. I always had the clam chowder appetizer. I ordered a duck special once, and it was also great. When the crabs are in season, you can't go wrong with crab legs.

    Favorite Dish: Dungeness crab legs, clam chowder

    This is where to get your chocolate fix in Seattle. They have absolutely divine dishes. You can get chocolate milkshakes (oh, but they are sooo much more than just milkshakes), mousse, truffles, cheesecake, and basically anything with chocolate in it.

    Favorite Dish: I like everything with chocolate, and therefore, everything in this restaurant

    This is an Italian restaurant. At first, the prices seem expensive, until you realize they're family size! This is a great restaurant with great prices. It is also very well decorated. They have rooms with different themes like wine, and movie stars, and the like. Also, when they take you to your seat, you get to walk right through the kitchen. There are also some FUNNY pictures. This all cumulates into a very very entertaining restaurant.

    Favorite Dish: Umm... Everything here is soooo good, I just can't choose my favorite menu item!

    Situated on the Skagit River, in the heart of downtown LaConner, the LaConner Seafood and Prime Rib House is a great place to sit outside on the river, with a view of the Rainbow Bridge, and have some good grub!

    Favorite Dish: We all had seafood, including fresh grilled oysters as an appetizer. Everything was good. This restaruant has a great reputation.

    by errnprincess Updated Nov 8, 2005

    Voted Seattle's BEST SUSHI 2005.........You have to try Wasabi Bistro. Great atmosphere! You can dine at a table, the bar, or the sushi bar. Enjoy drinks while waiting for a table. Reservations, may be a good idea. There were only 2 of us, and we waitind at the bar for 45 minutes and had drinks before being seated for dinner. We sat at the Sushi bar, and enjoyed watching the sushi chefs prepare the food. Service was excellent, fod was terriffic!!

    Favorite Dish: All the sushi was great...........Pick what sounds good, you wont be dissapointed.
