Why is it that I find such a fab restaurant on my second last day in Seattle?! Shaker + Spear is all about seafood paired simply with fresh and regional ingredients; exactly my kind of place. My sage arctic char with cauliflower, polenta and tapenade looks so beautifully and tastes even better! I’m making a mental note to come back here on my next trip.

Because I always have a good appetite (I eat more than K, ask him!), I’ve never felt that I can’t handle the stereotypical huge “American portions”. Until today at El Camion, where the portions are monstrous!! Shrimp ceviche on tostada shells sounds innocent enough but omg, it’s too much!!

I was planning to have dinner at Thackeray Cafe & Bar but they were serving a happy hour menu as well #score

Don’t be shocked by the number of plates on my table; the portions are small and manageable! In fact, I can probably eat much more because I really like all the “tapas” — hummus, kashke bademjan (similar to baba ganoush), charred broccoli with lemon-anchovy dressing, and spiced cauliflower with lemon yogurt. This place is a keeper!

I’m back for more feel-good food at HeartBeet Organic Superfoods Cafe within 24 hours! This time I make sure that I choose a light salad (marinated kale FTW) so that I can indulge in a slice of “pure pie”. The dark chocolate salted caramel pie is remarkably rich and decadent! And it’s 100% vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free, can you believe it?

The Living Cafe is one of my all-time favourite cafes in Singapore and HeartBeet Organic Superfoods Cafe reminds me of TLC very much. There’s smoothies, salads, warm grain bowls and desserts, basically everything I want to eat! But reality is harsh and I can only pick one… HeartBeet burger it is. A walnut, sesame seed and sun-dried tomato burger patty with dehydrated “onion bread”, served with maple coconut chips and BBQ sauce. I love it but oh my, this is super dense and filling!

Have you ever had one of those “wow, I’m gonna try to replicate this at home!” moments when you eat something simple yet so good at a restaurant? That’s what I feel for the warm cauliflower and kale salad from The Carlile Room. Generous shreds of parmesan, fried cubes of chickpea croutons, addictive black garlic caesar on the side, this is one salad which I can eat everyday! By the way, I won’t be recreating this since I don’t cook ha #justsaying

I spent the day doing touristy stuff — Pike Place Market (it’s bigger than I thought!), Waterfront, Pioneer Square etc. Then it started raining (again), sigh. So I ducked into The London Plane for shelter and food. Their bakery is famous for naturally leavened sourdough but you know I’m not into bread right ha. My brunch main of crispy farro, roasted salmon, atchara, shaobing (?!) and fried egg sounds more interesting on paper than in reality; overcooked salmon and salty overall; don’t think I’ll be back again.

Hello, pistachio croissant?? Just take my money please. Crumble & Flake Patisserie is apparently one of Seattle’s best pastry shops and this infamous croissant with pistachio cream even made an appearance on The Cooking Channel’s “Unique Sweets”! The real thing is good but not perfect; I wish it’s more flaky and the pistachio flavour more intense. That said, the magical part is that it starts to grow on me and I find myself finishing the whole calorie bomb!

Gosh, 3 times within a week; I told you Frankie & Jo’s is my favourite! This time it’s chocolate sauce over chocolate date ice cream, and moo goo (in-house activated charcoal salted caramel) over salty caramel ash ice cream. I love this place so much that I told K that we should open one in Singapore haha.

Other than Cafe Flora, Plum Bistro is another well-regarded vegetarian restaurant in Seattle. I prefer the former though; my order of pan seared creole tempeh with wilted collard salad is not exceptional and the celery root puree is strangely cold hmm.
