Anyone who knows me knows I am a true foodie. I am that annoying friend who posts pictures on social media of what I am having for dinner every night. No shame. I am not only impressed with the things I make with my own two hands (I still can’t believe sometimes when things turn out really well). Even when I am out, I feel like everyone needs to know about something really amazing that I have discovered in the way of culinary decadence. Once, the hubs and myself took a trip to Chicago just to eat at Moto. Okay, we have family there so it’s a big of an exaggeration to say that but still it was an amazing experience. You better believe I posted every course of that marvelous meal on facebook. And instagram. And maybe a few tweets. But really, isn’t food one of the most amazing experiences?
I always say that I like to spend money on experiences-going places, doing things with the ones I love. Those are the things that really help you bond and create the best memories. When I think of what food Seattle is known for I instantly think of fish or seafood. Many of the Alaska fishermen, you know on the popular show Deadliest catch are from Seattle. It’s not just for the professionals though. We had some cousins visit Seattle a couple of summers ago who decided to give crab fishing a go. They brought us a cooler filled with freshly caught crab. More social media photos preceded that meal as well.
When people always ask what to do or what to see in Seattle I typically have a hard time. Yes, there’s always the tourist stuff that you “have to do” but in reality, when I go places I go for the food experiences. I want to instantly tell people about the amazing food they have to experience while visiting Seattle. There’s not a lot of franchise type restaurants here unless they are local franchises so you’re not going to find a lot of stuff you can find in other places. Instead, most of it is locally farmed or fished and owned either by a local family or small business. That’s the type of experience you’ll remember when you visit. If you have a chance, come say ‘hello’. I’ll show you around!
