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”…

Where in the World Am I?

I’ve been away from Seattle since last Wednesday (and will be gone for the rest of the week); hence, the lack of posting. I’ll try to write up some of the adventures in the next few days or so. Perhaps the photo gives a clue…

Dishin’: Salmon Gone Wild at Oceanaire

This Seattlest is heading east for a long trip that will ultimately end in Nova Scotia—which is famous for lox. And that reminds us of the salmon-filled dinner that Oceanaire Seafood Room recently prepared for us. Nice setting, nice people, and a nice variety of…

Dishin’: Noshin’ at Nishino

Still in the fish club of sorts, we snuck into Nishino at the very end of the November 25 for $25 promotion. This was a big step for Seattlest. Lucky of late to make frequent trips to Japan, we’ve been hesitant to spend our hard-earned…

Laksa in West Virginia? Yes!

I was spending less than a day in West Virginia, with life on the road in small-town America presenting the usual “where to eat” challenge. Not many choices of interest in Morgantown, especially since I wasn’t heading downtown. So when I got a lead on…
