Dishin': Buffalo chicken livers at Joule

Remember when we lauded Joule restaurant’s chicken liver mousse popsicle? It was part of the “Chick-a-licious” menu of the Urban BBQ Series that Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi put together every summer. (See their Facebook events page for a preview of this year’s BBQ tour,…

Dishin’: Cascina Spinasse and the School of Pasta

This was a big deal. We usually go out for so-called “exotic” food like bugs, tripe, and chicken liver mousse popsicles (dipped in dark chocolate), but for a belated birthday dinner, we wanted to check out the fuss about Cascina Spinasse.
We rarely go out…

Dishin': Back to Federal Way for Naeng-myeon

After our unfortunate Bourdain/Bizarre-Foods-like bug-eating bungle, we were determined to go back to Federal Way (known to some as South Korea, who refer to Edmonds/Lynnwood/Shoreline as North Korea) for a more satisfying Korean food experience. Friends recently told us about eating naeng-myeon. So, noodleheads that…

Dishin': Peso’s Screaming Deal on Burgers

After our recent jaunt up to Ballard for burgers at Lunchbox Laboratory, the quest continues on Queen Anne Avenue. We already hit Dick’s and Hilltop Ale House, so upon recommendation, we headed to Peso’s for happy hour.
Look beyond the short menu at your table…

Dishin': Four Swallows, You Had Us at Duck

The fine folks at The Four Swallows invited us over (by over, we mean across Puget Sound) for some supper. Saturday was a superb day for a ferry ride, and after a short stroll through town, we reached the farmhouse that’s been home to the…

Dishin': Getting Saucy at Sazerac

Maybe it’s the springtime snow that’s got us savoring the South—or any taste of it we can get. Last time it was Waterfront Seafood Grill. This time, when Sazerac asked if we wanted to sample some “damn good food” from its Southern-inspired menu, we said…

Dishin': Something Sweetly Spicy at Dulces

What is it about a dumpling that’s so delightful? We love dough that’s filled and then folded or otherwise formed. Dumplings come in different shapes and sizes (recall our reviews of pelmeni, xiao long bao, and har gow, to name a few) and cut across…

Dishin': Maruta Shoten and the Battle Bento

A sakana ichiba (fish market) at Shibuya station is our favorite Tokyo battleground. Close to closing time, customers hover around the refrigerator cases, scouting out the sushi and sashimi assortments–especially the packages of maguro, mutsu, and more. Then, at about 7:45, the man with the…
