seeking szechuan spicy goodness

Sichuanese Cuisine does a good Sichuanese Boiled Fish, and I like their Hot Beef Chow Mein.

Goat meat in Seattle

University district Farmer's Market there is usually a guy that sells goat. Otherwise seek out Halal butchers, I usually get it at the one on Lake City Way, or out in Redmond... I can't remember the actual names of the stores!

Vietnamese Near U District?

Saigon Deli on Brooklyn & 42nd is my favorite for the U-district. I like their tofu & egg bahn mi.

Breakfast and Lunch Places Open on Thanksgiving Day

Lola will be open for sure, good for breakfast. It will be packed, so try to get a reservation if you decide to go there. The 5 Point will be open if you want my favorite chicken fried steak in town.

A Walrus and the Carpenter sanity check

I've done this walk and it's not terrible. The #40 does indeed run along this route, carry $2.50 each in case you have enough of the industrial yacht views :)

If you were looking into microbrews, you might want to check out Brouwer's (http://brouwerscafe.com/draught.pdf) on the way. It happens to be across the street from a chocolate factory that you can tour, if you're into that type of thing (https://www.theochocolate.com/).

Buffalo Chicken Wings

Cooper's Alehouse (Maple Leaf) <--good execution
The Attic (Madison Park) <--best sauce in town
Leny's (Green Lake) <--these are breaded, so kind of different
Yardhouse (Downtown) <--this is a chain but the wings are decent
Wingdome (Phinney Ridge) <--I think there's one in Kirkland?
Twilight Exit (Central District) <--they have two kinds!

Sorry all of mine are on the Seattle side of the lake. I rarely take that bus ride over the water. My buddy and I have a neverending quest for good chicken wings.

Drinking and Eating in Ballard-Fremont area

If you wanted something really new you could pop into Tray, which opens tomorrow. Obviously I haven't been there yet but the menu looks really interesting and it's right in the ol' freeballing neighborhood.

Nooooooooooo I used to live right next to there and basically used it as my living room.

Bleachers has a long shuffleboard though! Actually, so do The Reservior and The Zoo so as long as we can keep those.

PS. Sorry for smoking under your window.

What to bring back to Texas and restaurant recommendations (Capitol Hill, South Lake Union)??

I'll add products from Peek's Pantry and Britt's Pickles as local products to check out:

I keep pretty much all of PK's products on hand, and always get kimchi & kraut from Britt's.

Also as a note Salumi's meats are available (along with a ton of other great things) at DeLaurenti's in the Pike Place Market.

Along with PK's hibiscus soda there are a few great local ones:

Checking out Cone & Steiner might be a good call too.

The University District farmer's market is open year round

In Praise of Dives, or... Another One Bites the Dust

Oh you mean Old Earl's. I agree with you there. All of the old regulars migrated on to the Blue Moon or the Knarr or other dives.

I'm sad that they're closing (have closed? Haven't been by recently) Moon Temple, as well.

Earl's on the Ave is still there. Or it was on Friday, at least.

The Streamline became my new home when I moved to LQA, so I hope it can maintain it's character after the move.

I would cry many tears if the Boxcar or the Blue Moon closed.

20somethings in Seattle need recos!

Damn the Weather in Pioneer Square for drinks.

RIP Roslyn's Brick Tavern

Aw man! I stop for a bloody every time I go through (on your recommendation, I believe).

LOL at "Hell's Rotarians" though.

Pioneer Square roundup

They've moved pretty quickly the two times I've been. I went early though, so I'm not sure about later. I loved both the potato topping and the fig & goat cheese topped pieces I've tried.

suggestions for food & drink spots for a vegetarian and a non seafood fan

Revel in Fremont. Great food, lots of veg and non-seafood options. And since you're big belgian beer fans, go across the street to Brouwer's afterwards.

Headed to Seattle and looking to eat!

WHAAAAAAAAAAT okay good to know that the Ballard location is open Sundays. To be perfectly honest I usually eat mine with my feet in the water at the secret beach :)

Headed to Seattle and looking to eat!

Salumi isn't open on weekends and Paseo is closed Sundays. They'll be busy on Saturdays, but a Havana Seared Scallop Sandwich (5-star heat) was always worth calling in when I lived a few blocks away in Fremont. The forecast looks pretty good for the weekend, so I would call in to the Shilshole location ahead, and pick up to go picnic at Golden Gardens. OR call the Fremont location and picnic in the Rose Garden by the Zoo.

Walrus & Carpenter doesn't take reservations, and there's usually a bit of a wait.

There's a Taylor Shellfish location right by Seattle Center (where the EMP is located). http://tayloroysterbars.com/locations...

Good BBQ in Seattle?

Not so fast... https://www.facebook.com/permalink.ph...

"Jack's BBQ will be closed for dinner this week and next , except for tonight and Roem Baur ticket holders this Saturday. Still open for lunch Tues-Sat. Need more cooks and floor staff!!!"

So I guess they've been busy, at least?

I've been to the SF location several times when visiting friends, and the San Diego location countless times when I lived within walking distance of it. The Seattle location is definitely bigger and fancier. I didn't try the food, but our bartender was very nice and knew his beer. I got to try a few things that I haven't seen since I lived in CA, both of which were as good as I remember. I'll have to go back to try the food.

Toulouse Petit - any other restaurants a visitor should try?

It's hard to beat the view of the water at Westward. It's a lake view, not ocean though. Elliott's on the pier for Oyster Happy Hour if you're an oyster fan and can get there at 3 for a spot in the bar. Ray's has a good water view from the Cafe, but the food isn't particularly special. I do love to go for happy hour if I have a weekday afternoon off and get the manila clams, and soak up the broth with their good Columbia City bakery rolls.

Good breakfast spot in Capital Hill

You can get a pitcher of Mimosas at Lost Lake. The food is pretty good too.

Honeymoon in PNW - Vegetarians Seeking Meals / Lodging

I've hunted Chanterelles outside of Portland several times, a decent hour outside the city there are some good spots, they vary by year (I fear it might not be a great year, considering how dry we've been). But mushrooming is great fun so I'll point you to these guys and wish you luck, if you happen upon a nice fall day it's a great day trip: http://www.psms.org/index.php

For vegetarian friendly in the city, most Seattle restaurants will have at least one option. Poppy always has a vegetarian thali on the menu (get the eggplant fries while you're at it).

Weekend in Seattle - Food recs?

Yuji! I will also attest that the spam fried rice is the BEST hangover food ever. You can also get your eggs benedict made with spam. And I like the french toast. Breakfast in general is great.

Otherwise YES on the karaoke.

Breakfast near Hyatt at olive 8

On a recent trip to get breakfast at the 5 Point, they told me that their waffle iron had been retired, but I could get my fried chicken with french toast. It was awesome.
