If you are looking for a fantastic poke and Hawaiian food shop in the Seattle area, Sam Choy's should be your go-to spot! With locations in South Seattle and also now Kirkland, they are on both sides of Lake Washington to accommodate customers all over the Northwest! Their poke is fantastic. They serve loco moco bowls, beef short ribs, and all other kinds of fantastic island eats. They even have sides of lumpia! I love Sam Choy's Poke - for the full write up and pictures be sure to click for more info! Mahalo!
Vegetarian/vegan cooking (at least I think) often gets a bad rep from the general public in regards to flavor and how filling it is. I know I have heard plenty of people joke about how they can't live off a plate of lettuce, or that nothing tastes better than a steak. Honestly, I have been trying to dive more into vegetarian eating for sustainability reasons, and being a lifelong meat-eater am finding there is no reason for this stigma! There are tons of creative meat recipes and substitutes out there, and a well-prepared vegetarian meal can be just as if not more delicious. I set out to try and discover a new vegetarian restaurant in Seattle and came across the "No Bones Beach Club" in Ballard and thought it was fantastic! Here is my full experience.
Ascend Prime Steak and Sushi in downtown Bellevue has been getting a ton of buzz since opening. Part of the buzz was how crazy the pricing is! I however gave them a try for lunch and enjoyed a fantastic 3-course, prix fixe menu for $31 and it was worth so much more. Details on my experience here!
Looking for the perfect breakfast spot while visiting Lake Chelan? Blueberry Hills Farm in Manson, WA was a new find for us and now will be a breakfast/brunch staple when visiting sunny Lake Chelan!
Dad's Diner is one of the best restaurant discoveries I have made in the past few years. From their home-smoked meats, fresh made breads and pretty much scratch-everything, this place packs a serious flavor punch! They are so much more than a diner and when visiting Anacortes be sure to make a stop to fill up!
We celebrated my daughter's 4th birthday this year at the Sugar Factory in Bellevue and couldn't have had more fun! It is a great venue for a special occasion - the girls thought it was so cute to walk the red carpet and LOVED their extravagant milkshakes!
Brassierie Four is a French restaurant in Walla Walla that absolutely blew us out of the water with the experience on our first visit. The food and service were incredible and we will come back every time we visit Walla Walla for sure!

I feel like it has been far too long since we had nice formal date night out, so I put in a special request with hubby for one and he completely delivered! The Lakehouse in Bellevue is a new Jason Wilson restaurant that I have been hearing some buzz about, just opening this past spring. …
Another Lake Chelan feature - this time I am sharing one of my favorite brunch spots! Once you discover Sorrento's Ristorante you will become a regular when in Chelan, because you just can't beat the ambiance! Oh yeah... they do brunch 😉
