“Ant On The Tree” at Sichuanese Cuisine

“Ant On The Tree.” That’s what my dining companion, minutes into his first visit to Sichuanese Cuisine, said he wanted for lunch. He didn’t know what it was, but he liked the name. Ahead of the upcoming Olympics, the Chinese government has been working to…

Good to Go (to): Julia’s Indonesian Kitchen at Bite of Seattle

I love the idea of Bite of Seattle, but (except for The Alley, hosted by Tom Douglas) regrettably there aren’t as many real restaurants as in the past. You’ll find some fun food, but most of it is from vendors you’ll see at other fairs…

Good to Go: Avocado-Chocolate Bubble Tea

“Wow. Wii!” That’s what we said last time we walked into Pochi Tea Station in the University District. They always had a pile of games (the low-tech Jenga being our favorite), but now there was Wii to go along with the noise of the music…

Feeling Ducky at Green Leaf

Welcome to the world of Seattle Asian Eats! What a world it is: Thai restaurants everywhere, teriyaki as the go-to fast food (with pho giving it a go as well), bubble tea for young and old alike, mediocre dim sum, and more. As I wait…

Good to Go: Hiroki’s Sweet, But Not-Too-Sweet, Desserts

Yesterday, a busy afternoon meant missing the Queen Anne Farmers Market for the first time since it opened this year, so without seasonal berries or cherries at hand, the evening’s treat was a stop at Hiroki—the Tangletown bakery near Kisaku, one of my favorite restaurants…

What’s Cookin’: Seattle Chocolate Salon

We’re still digesting the ample fare from FareStart’s Guest Chef on the Waterfront event, but if you’re a chocoholic (and the new Chocolopolis isn’t quite enough for you), then you might just want to attend this Sunday’s Seattle Luxury Chocolate Salon. Let’s break that down.…
