Seattle Restaurants serving Sweetbreads.

I love Sweetbreads... the meat, not pastry kind... where in Seattle can I find them?

LOOKING FOR A GOOD QYSTER SANDWICH... LET'S MAKE THAT GREAT!

Thanks to all who helped me find a 'po boy! I thought I would reward you with a good laugh. First off: whereyaatmatt was in Fremont feeding Zombies (I should have rented a car), the French joint I was thinking of was Maxmilians, going to PPM on the first nice Saturdary was insane.

So, I got to Town, and went to PPM to look for Matt's... not open till dinner. Finally found Pike
Place Chowder, and there was a line out the door... @ 10:30am! Not liking the looks of the place anyway... kind of plastic. Went to a Tully's and had an iced coffee, found a place to sit and searched the Internet.. Christy mentioned Elliot's and that looked fine and not far away, so I headed over. Saw the sign on the building and went in and ordered a 'po boy at the counter. Elliott's wasn't quite what I was expecting, but the sandwich came and it was okay. At least I was finally getting my fried oyster sandwich. Near the end of my meal, I noticed the name on the receipt... STEAMERS... what the hell... maybe they changed the name? I went outside and looked around and found Elliott's out back... next time. Thanks to everyone for helping... and I will remember whereyaatmatt!

That would be my guess... Is there even a Matt at Matt's???

Thanks for the info, kaleokahu... I'll be carless on this trip, but I've been wanting to go see the Fremont Troll, so now I have an extra reason.

hmmmm... maybe it wasn't Matt's... it was way in the back and just stumbled on to it... wine was a big deal there... I wouldn't have thought it was called Matt's though. Will look for it. Thanks...

Hey thanks... I think I've eaten at Matt's... French as I recall.... at least the waiter was, and very elegant place. Excellent food. I'll see if they will make one. I was looking at Pike Place Chowder... lots of mixed reviews. There seemed to be a lot of negative ones, esp. re: service. But, that's always fun to check out when you know in advance.

Thanks... mrnelso & AndrewS... Matt's looks great and the peacemaker is probably 'to die for'... but on Sat. Matt is way North @ 16th & Darius... I need something downtown, as I'm on foot...

"Getting Back Into Asian cooking: Which Knife?"

It works well and is very reminiscence of the knife I bought 35 years ago. I'm still planning on getting one of the CCK small slicers someday.

"Getting Back Into Asian cooking: Which Knife?"

Thanks to all who responded... got my Dexter knife and other goodies at Dong Vihn Restaurant Supply in Seattle. A basic S5198 for $35 (on Amazon for $45), so that was a good place to go. Best knife they had, with lots of less expensive ones in stock.

Went to Dong Vihn's and found lots of things I could not do without! Unfortunately, I had forgot to take my wallet, but they kind enough to ship. Next trip to Seattle Uwajimaya is on the list. Thanks to all for your suggestions.

Thanks for the feedback Cowboy... I'm getting a large and a small one I think. Will be interesting to see what is available at the store I'm going to in Seattle.

I have this posted under 'Cookware' too, and someone who used to live in the area said there was a Chinese "five & dime" in the International District called something like Hovens... some time ago and didn't know if it was still there... could not find an internet listing.

Wow! impressive display at Chan chi kee... I like those narrow slicers too... I fear my wallet is in store for a hit when I go to the Restaurant Supply in Seattle. Thanks for the reply, Chemicalkinetics! And, you are probably right about that not being as impressive now.

Hi Babette... I can almost feel myself walking down the isle at Dong Vinh... meet you there at 3 on Wed. And, will be stoping by U for sure for condiments. Have you heard of a place called 'Hoven's' ?

"Getting Back Into Asian cooking: Which Knife?"

I took Chinese Cooking Classes in the 70's as a way to invite my dates to my house and impress them... it worked! Now I am going to be impressing my grandchildren with my stir-fry skills. I had 3 instructors, including Martin Yan, and my first was a young woman who had just arrived from Taiwan. She was using and suggested a Dexter Chef Knife as the one to get. So I did, but it has gone by the wayside in many moves and haven't done stir-fry in many years.

In reading around, some are saying that Dexter's are not made the same and do not hold an edge.
