8 Best Sichuanese Restaurants in Seattle

Jay Friedman 12 comments

The Seattle area has a number of Sichuanese restaurants, with good overall quality and some stellar dishes. At these restaurants, you'll find more adventurous menu options, including the pickled and peppered preparations typical of the Sichuan region—especially some fiery ma la (numbing and spicy) dishes that come with bright red colors. Most of these places are on the Eastside, but when I'm in the mood for something spicy, I don't mind crossing Lake Washington. More

A Sandwich a Day: Sloppy Drunken Joes at Lot No. 3 in Bellevue, WA

A Sandwich a Day Denise Sakaki 5 comments

This is far richer and more flavorful to the Sloppy Joes of childhood. The ground angus beef is mixed in a "boozy" tomato sauce that tastes like a sweet and sour whiskey barbecue sauce, topped with fried shallots and sage leaves to give it some crunch and round out the sweetness. Lot No. 3 smears the bun with a house-made Dijon mustard; it's spicier than what you'd find at other places, and it gives the sandwich an almost wasabi-like burn. More

Market Scene: Bellevue Farmers' Market in Washington

Market Scene Denise Sakaki Post a comment

An old metal bell signals the start of the Bellevue Farmers' Market, but even before it rings at 3 p.m., the official start time, people start gathering. Bellevue is about a 20 minute drive east of Seattle (not counting traffic), across Lake Washington. For the most part, the market has a local-edibles-only rule—only food that's grown or prepared in Washington can be sold here. Leeks, hothouse-grown heirloom tomatoes, wood-fired pizza from a mobile oven, and more. More

Market Scene: Bellevue and Crossroads Farmers' Markets in Washington

Market Scene Denise Sakaki 1 comment

In the lush evergreen lands of Washington state, for those who live on the Eastside, across the lake from Seattle, you long for the daily farmers' market freshness of Pike Place Market, but feel guilty about that pesky carbon footprint of driving a few cities over for a fresh bit of leafy greens. Thankfully, there are several great neighborhood farmers' markets that are in full swing, offering the latest midsummer goodies and their own unique charm. I recently visited the two main markets in the city of Bellevue, the Bellevue Farmers Market and the Crossroads Farmers Market. More

Erin Zimmer 8 comments

According to the Bellevue Reporter, Whole Foods requires each staff butcher to complete a 1,920-hour training process, which lasts about two years. They start with clean-up duties, then the counter, then cutting duties, which starts with poultry, then pork, and finally beef. Talk about a meat doctorate. [via Girlhacker]... More
