AB Road Eats: Seattle


COFFEE

Slate Coffee: If there’s a fourth wave of coffee, Slate is it. I had a fantastic pour over here.

Milstead and Co.: Because two coffees are better than one. Thanks for the macchiato, Milstead. Good coffee and a great space too. Be sure to visit the Troll up the street.

LUNCH

Beecher’s Handmade Cheese: I really enjoy cheese and I absolutely love the cheese curds at Beecher’s. This time I also tried their famous grilled cheese and mac and cheese. There’s a reason this establishment always has a line.

Paseo: The best bite I had in Seattle goes to a sandwich hut called Paseo. The line was down the block. Literally. If you know you won’t have the time, call ahead and order the Caribbean Roast sandwich (pork shoulder coated in Paseo’s marinade and slow-roasted). I’m still thinking about it.

SWEETS

Top Pot Doughnut: Good coffee and doughnuts. I enjoyed the apple fritter and the logo (took home a bunch of gear).

    Melrose Grill in Renton has the best steaks! The best crawfish is Crawfish House in West Seattle–get the house sauce, or if you want some tang, get it the tango sauce (house sauce with some tamarind)! Pink Door in one of the alleys at the Pike Place Market has the BEST lasagna!!!

    HI! I would recommend Chef Shota’s new Adana, at 15th and Pine on Capitol Hill. As ever, Sitka and Spruce in the Melrose Market also on Capitol Hill. And the new Breakfast offered by Rain Shadow Meats on Occidental Avenue in the real heart of Seattle, Pioneer Square.

    If you want to venture across Lake Washington you can’t miss Deru Market or their other restaurant Little Brother in Kirkland. They are local gems that are typically standing room only! Well worth the trip!

    If you like donuts go to the Original bakery in West Seattle by the fauntleroy ferry dock. Way better than Top pot. If you like Thai than take the ferry to Vashon Island and go to May’s kitchen and Bar, it’s the best outside of Thailand

    If you haven’t been there yet, get cured meats and great Italian sandwiches from Salumi, but that also could be difficult if you are only there on Saturday. They are only open Monday thru Friday.

    Biscuit B*tch is the only place to get breakfast! With locations downtown and in the heart of Pike. You’ll be shocked how good it is!! For lunch you can’t miss RoRo’s unbelievable BBQ in Wallingford for lunch. Pulled pork, sweet potato fries, and homemade BBQ sauce, what could be better?! For something lighter try Ellenos famous Greek yogurt down in Pike. It is staggeringly good.

    Flo Sushi in Bellevue. Ask for the custom chef-designed hand rolls (not on menu). Melrose Grill in Renton has the most divine steaks in town, with a fantastic spinach and chickpea salad. Taylor Shellfish has the best oysters for the best price.

    Girls Gone BBQ at the West Seattle Farmers Market (on Sundays) is awesome! Super good Arkansas-style BBQ. Really, really good pulled pork sandwiches with apple ‘Arkanslaw’ and their mac & cheese is to die for!

    Come check out West Seattle! Bakery Neuvo makes the best almond croissants. Then the bacon cheeseburger at Swinery will blow you away. Lastly, go to Mashiko’s for sustainable, fresh and delicious sushi. Make sure you make a reservation and sit at the sushi bar!

    We highly recommend Maneki in Seattle and order the black cod miso collar. Yummers!!! Reservation required!
    If you’re interested in Indonesian food, there’s the amazing Indo Cafe on Aurora ave.
    Both are our favorites and you should try them!

    8 Oz. Burger has hands down my favorite burger in Seattle, simply named the 8 Oz. Made with grass-fed beef, Beecher’s cheddar cheese, bacon, and truffle aioli, it is heaven between two buns.

    Also, the old Paseo is no longer owned by the old owners. You want the original Paseo? Go to Un Bien in Ballard, where the original owners of Paseo relocated.
