Restaurants, WA


It was my first trip to the North West to visit my BFF Janelle.  Besides the cloudy factor, it’s a beautiful city with snow capped mountains surrounding the Puget Sound.  Some pretty awesome moments were the aquarium, the space needle, the ferry ride to Bainbridge Island, canoeing, and Quinn’s gastropub.

I had their legendary roast pork sandwich.  It was one of the best pork sandwiches I’ve ever had.  The pork was so juicy and succulent and I couldn’t seem to use portion control on this one.

Portage Bay
Great breakfast/brunch with all organic and local ingredients.

We had an amazing dinner here.  I’m still thinking about it.  We had the wild boar sloppy joe, beef tartare, oxtail, seared foie gras, the bone marrow, and the pork belly.
