Not only is Seattle home to my favourite NFL football team (Go Hawks!), but it’s also got some of my fav food joints, as well. Sure, there’s Pike Place Fish Market and some of the freshest clam chowder, calamari and fish ‘n chips you’ll find all over this country. But you can also get all kinds of good stuff here, from deep-fried candied bacon, to a breakfast burrito served Christmas style, to a chicken-fried steak as big as your head. (I actually finished it, too, but that joint was too dark for me to take a picture, bro!) If I had a green card, I would totally move to Belltown, get Seahawks season tickets and eat my weight in seafood every month… Hey, a food dude can dream, can’t he?
Ivar’s Fish ‘n Chips is the real deal. Right on the waterfront, they’re serving up some righteous clam chowder and out-of-bounds fish ‘n chips for Happy Hour!
Not to be outdone, these Pacific King Salmon tacos at Pike Place were one of the best fish dishes I’ve ever had.
Just a Russell Wilson spiral away from the stadium, the Pyramid Alehouse serves up some killer calamari and righteous fish burgers in its own right.
So, this funky southern-style breakfast joint just opened up in Belltown about a year ago. They call this the Smokin’ Hot Bitch: Biscuit and Gravy smothered in cheese and topped with a grilled Louisiana Hot Link & jalapenos. I call it magically delicious!
See, I wasn’t kiddin’ about the breakfast burrito, bro!
