Our Pick of the Week
Cederberg Tea House, Upper Queen Anne - Every few months I binge on Cederbergs pastries and drinks for a few days. I go there every day for two to three days in a row till I have to tell myself to get a grip. Their Malva pudding and teas are just that good. Pace yourself friends.
The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich - Step up your breakfast sandwich game with the recipe for a croissanwich by Pinch of Yum
New Sh*t in Town
Dough Zone Dumpling House, International District - This popular Eastside dumpling spot now has an outpost in Seattle! Their new location has a similar menu as its sister location such as the xiao long bao, pork buns, spicy wontons etc. They are near the Uwajimaya, so you could visit them a post/pre grocery shopping?
Baron's Xi'an Kitchen and Bar, Bellevue - Baron's has finally opened in Lincoln Square extension, right across the hall from the Lakehouse. The restaurant serves both Traditional and contemporary Chinese dishes. Their menu online doesn’t have prices so I can't tell you what to expect but they do have a $88 signature Peking duck that is roasted in a special custom duck oven.
Aviv Hummus Bar, Capitol Hill - If you've ever had one of those moments where you suddenly crave hummus but you're not sure where to go, you now have a new option. Aviv Hummus bar in Cap hill is all about the hummus, served with pita bread and topped with all sorts of goodies from falafel to ground beef.
