I know I'm always on the lookout for a good new place to go eat so I thought maybe we could share our favorite places with each other.


Mine's Thai Bistro. There are 3 in the area, but I usually go to the one at the end of Highway 18 in Federal Way

Ranch Drive-in, the one in Bothell(dunno if there's another).

It's across the street from Bigfoot Java.

Bacon Ranch and a Mythical Mocha(caramel and white chocolate muahaha) makes a Friday nite f*cking awesome.

oh and Maneki is fairly cheap but don't get fooled by the wait the owner always make it sound like it will take 3 times longer than it really is haha. She always says something like 40min wait but was only ~15min etc.

Kisaku is close on the expensive side , my gf and I on average spend about $50-60 there with drinks and entrees + few side individual sushi plates.

Maneki is usually $25-35 with drinks and etc.

hey guys,
planning on coming down to Seattle with my dad (he's visiting from Asia). Was wondering if Blue Fin is a good place to go for lunch? I've never been there before, so I'm gonna try it.

Apart from Pike Place market (which he likes to go to), are there any interesting spots in Seattle, or along the way? Also, any recommendations for dinner? We are coming from Vancouver, BC. Gonna take the I-5. Thanks!

Dinner will be en route back to Vancouver, so probably closer to Burlington (outlets), Bellingham... not looking for anything fancy/expensive. Something along the lines of Olive Garden in terms of $$

thanks!

I've been there before with the wifey. Didn't try the salmon, but definately enjoyed the food.

I've read that Skylarks in Fairhaven is good for breakfast. Have you been there before?

I haven't-- I have family in White Rock and we just passed through Fairhaven a couple times.

Black Bottle in Seattle was my favorite place for dinner when I was out there last year.

whoa!! thanks for all the info guys! Now I'll have a bit more to do in Seattle than just walk around Pike Place Market and the downtown area!

I go down to Bellingham every weekend, too... Good to have recommendations close by!

If you're in Seattle check out the EMP (Experience Music Project) if you haven't heard of it, it's a giant interactive music museum.

Kerry Edwards Park on Queen Anne hill is also amazing, especially at night.

Beth's Cafe is REALLY good classic breakfast food. A little spendy, but the portions are gigantic.
