Cotton candy in Seattle, fresh all day?

I discovered today the Seattle Fudge makes all of its cotton candy in the first hour it's open, 11-noon. It took some wrangling (There's not enough room in their new location for making cotton candy, so they now make it in a vacant space across the armory.), but they were willing to sell us a just-made cone.

I'm still interested in places where it's an easier feat to pull off, if you know of any.

Cotton candy in Seattle, fresh all day?

I just had a big hankering for cotton candy, which is so much better immediately after it's made.

What places in town make it to order whenever they're open? I usually think of Seattle Fudge, but they tend to make it in giant batches. I think they do this at the new version of Von's on first, too.

Thanks for any assistance you can provide!

They're doing it!

They've been open for almost 4 weeks. Very similar to Ipanema and Amazon Grill, at a similar price.

Crowds are building, but still fairly thin. They would be grateful for your patronage.

Cheesecake in Seattle?

Concur.

Moving to Seattle from Cambridge, MA...where should I live?

I know some people who like to shop regularly at Pike Place Market, but I could not stand to do so. It's incredibly congested with tourists, particularly in the summer but even in the winter. I go only when it's unavoidable.

Feedback on my researched 4 day itinerary for July please!!!

Old School has one rotating flavor in addition to chocolate and vanilla; Peaks has two.

Both tend to have packed pints of recent rotating flavors in the freezer.

While I like Full Tilt a lot better than Molly Moons, these both suffer from an indistinct, mushy consistency in my view. I wish I could explain how this differs from frozen custard, which is soft by design, but I have a hard time. It may actually have to do with how thick FT and MM are when then melt--pretty far from a liquid.

Peaks and Old School both serve exclusively frozen custard, by scooping it.

Parfait is truck only. Location calendar is here: http://www.parfait-icecream.com/sched... .

Sushi with a child

You should definitely choose a place where you can sit at the sushi bar with your son. I know this is possible at Kisaku.

There should be a rule prohibiting the use of the term omakase to describe meal service in which the patron and sushi chef don't interact directly.

Morfey's. No crazy sculpture aspirations, just great cake, creat filling, great icing.

Here's my comparison, Mr. N.: Full Tilt is a lot better than Molly Moon. Parfait, Empire, Peaks, Old School, and Cupcake Royale are all better than Full Tilt.

Sushi with a child

Omakase at Kisaku in the Tangletown neighborhood between Wallingford and Green Lake would work very well for you.

Dot's Deli, Fremont

Isn't this under the diner's control? Unless you've made a special request to dine in the walk-in, the ambient temperature is high enough at your table that with a little patience, you can get thin-sliced meats to the temperature you desire them.

Pizza week

BG, I agree, if only because Kylie's is trying to make pan pizza (and succeeding), not stuffed.

I do not like Molly Moon. All of these are way better:

Peaks Frozen Custard

Old School Frozen Custard

Mora (Winslow on Bainbridge Island)

Full Tilt

D'Ambrosia gelato

Procopio

Bottega Italiana

31 Flavors

Bluebird (which isn't as good as 31 Flavors)

Thanks for all of your comments, UH.

I'm glad you and your group had such a good experience here.

Seattle specialties

The Unicorn's corn-doggy version is fantastic.

Sufficiently Noisy Sushi (without compromising quality of food)?

I've seen some lively parties at Kisaku, unlikely to be a problem. If you feel self-conscious, you could ask for the back room.

Japonessa and Umi are certainly more typically raucous in my experience, but not as good (food or service), unless you're specifically looking for a nouveau sushi experience.

Favorite pork chop in Seattle?

I've had several fantastic brined pork chops at Crow. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be on the menu that's up on Crow's website now.

L.A. Asian (i.e. will-eat-most-things) needs recs for last minute trip to Seattle!

I got the prochetta early in Lecosho's life, and really regretted it--incredibly gristly. Not particularly crispy either. I imagine I'll give it another chance sometime, but it's unlikely to be soon.

MMM, I'm glad your soup turned out so well.

I think your heart-healthy reference refers to the dairy among the ingredients, and, in particular, the fat. While it is a common belief that consuming fat is a significant contributor to heart disease, these books by Gary Taub have recently convinced me that it is incorrect.

Ideas for making hay & straw pasta?

I suggest making without bacon, but frying or roasting some bacon separately for people to add if they wish.

Anyone Remember Lofurno's?

Yesterday I drove by the house Adriatica was in, and was sad to see that it had been demolished in order to build a big building. Sad! My wife and I had our wedding rehearsal dinner there on the last weekend they were open.

Where to go for dungeness crab

Anthony's Homeport at the Shilshole marina used to have all-you-can eat dungenous crab feeds on Sunday afternoon/evening. I can't tell from their website whether they still do.

The last time I went, which was probably a dozen years ago, it was no more than $20, and you could get them chilled or steamed. They weren't great at serving them steamed, but cold they were fantastic.

What would you estimate to be the percentage of this dish's mass that's rice? It sounds amazing to me, but I'm working hard to eat little starch.

Thx much.
