Pike Place Market is a working market for locals as well as a central attraction for tourists and business travelers alike. There are plenty of places to satisfy your sweet tooth, but here's where we recommend you start.
'Piroshky Piroshky' on Serious Eats
Yesterday we shared every savory morsel at Piroshky Piroshky, the purveyor of Russian piroshki—individually-sized pies with sweet or savory fillings, wrapped in dough and baked—at Pike Place Market. But this popular shop sells sweet versions as well, and we gave them all a try.
Piroshky (or pirozhok—but not to be confused with pierogi) is the Russian version of an empanada, calzone, or any other stuffed hand-held pie. Common fillings include poppy seeds, sausage, and cabbage. At Piroshky Piroshky in Seattle's Pike Place Market, they add a Pacific Northwest twist with a version that rolls up smoked salmon pate.
