TMA Mondays: Life Happens

While listening to new album American Teen by Khalid

So life happened, is happening and we apologize for dropping the ball last week! This week's post is chalk full of updates to make up for it.

First, Starbucks does coffee well, but it seems juice isn't their forte. Their side hustle Evolution Fresh is no longer going to be a brick and mortar venture but bottled juices sold in Starbucks.

Conflict Kitchen serves food from countries that the United States is currently in conflict with. Currently, only Pittsburgh has the privilege to experience this, but it's definitely something all 50 states need right now. 

Pinxto is expanding to a new space in Belltown in May. This is good news because even though tapas are small you still need more room to eat them than in their current location.

Are burgers the new poke of 2017? All the burger joints opening up in Capitol Hill seem to give the impression that it is. Little Big Burger is expanding to open a bigger location on 12th Ave not too far from Katsu burger.


Our Pick of the Week

Shaved Duck, St. Louis, Missouri - I visited St. Louis for the first time this weekend. I ate basically everything possible on the menu of this restaurant and it's hard to choose a favorite dish.

Gooey Butter Cake - St. Louis is known for their gooey butter cake. It was served as dessert at the wedding I attended and I think all wedding cakes should be replaced with this STAT. Until then, I'm going to teach myself how to make some with this recipe.


New Sh*t in Town

Kiki Ramen, Belltown - as of last week Bar Naroeste is no more. Josh Henderson is now using the space to serve up ramen instead of tacos.

Paseo, Capitol Hill - Drunk food in Cap hill just got better this weekend with Paseo opening its doors. Sadly, it replaced Pike Street Fish Fry.

Derby, Denny Triangle - Ethan and Angela Stowell are keeping 6th avenue classy with their new venture opening in the spring. They will serve American classic food and cater to car enthusiasts.

Midnight Cookie, Wallingford - Insomnia was a favorite of many who went to college in the south or east coast. This is Seattle's version and perfect for a late night of binge watching Netflix.


Seattle, What's Happening?

Dine Around Seattle, 3/5-3/23 - Time to hit all those restaurants that you deemed too expensive, you know the ones that don’t even list price, and eat 3 course meals for the price of one.
