Dishin’: Piroshky, Piroshky… (say it and eat it twice)

It’s so great, they had to name it twice. Before you start belting out “New York, New York,” think again. We’re in Seattle, and we’re talking about one of New Yorker Anthony Bourdain’s favorite local eateries: Piroshky, Piroshky. Piroshky, Piroshky is easy to find. Follow…

Dishin’: Morning Moon at Julia’s

We don’t go bonkers for brunch. Why pay ten, fifteen bucks for someone else’s spin on eggs or bubbling of batter when we can easily cook that stuff at home? But friends recently came to visit from Japan and wanted to take us out for…

Dishin’: Applebee’s Bland “Huge Flavors”

Last time out, we succumbed to the power of the unappealing Entertainment Book. Could things get worse? Apparently so. Elsewhere in the car we found a soon-to-expire gift certificate for Applebee’s. In case you don’t know, Applebee’s is a growing chain of nearly 2,000 restaurants…

Dishin': The Pagliacci Slice

Sometimes we just want a slice of pizza. Not a pie. Not a square. Not a round. We’re talking a slice – one that you can grab with a hand, fold inward, and then tilt downward to watch the grease drip to the paper plate…

Dishin’: A Kiss to Kisaku

Emboldened by our satisfactory sushi outing at Nishino, but wanting something a little more Japanese (the menu had that “pan-Asian” thing going, and there wasn’t a Japanese customer or server in sight) and a little less pretentious (two words: Madison Park), we made our way…

Dishin’: Swallowing Clouds at Wonton City

Chicken broth-based soups are some of the ultimate comfort foods, and are especially good when sick. We love them all, from matzo ball soup (a.k.a. “Jewish penicillin”) to tortilla soup to good ol’ Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup (or, better yet, Chicken & Stars – our…

Dishin’: Eating Big at Morton’s

It was a big deal: Morton’s invited us in to sample some of their food. Yes, Morton’s—the big chain, serving steak coast to coast. The whole affair started with a big menu presentation. The server brought a big cart to the table and essentially walked…

Dishin’: Saluti a Salumi

It’s not the easiest place to find – or to eat. Quirky hours (11-4 Tuesday through Friday), an inevitable line out the door, decision-making on your feet, a communal table… but this is what makes Salumi so special and so memorable. Just google “Salumi Seattle”…

Dishin’: Roamin’ for Ramen

We’re crazy about ramen. It might go back to Tampopo, the 1985 “Noodle Western” centered around a ramen shop, with its memorable raw egg and saliva swapping scene. While that movie glamorized the noodles for us, we’d never been to a real ramen shop, instead…

Dishin': Meet Olivar’s Meatballs

Seattlest already gave you the scoop on the opening of Olivar. So what about the food? Chef Philippe Thomelin chatted with us while preparing some of his favorite dishes. We discussed how the Tortilla Española (potato omelet with caramelized onion) is a gauge of his…
