TMA Mondays: Upgrade Ya
The Seattle airport is getting an upgrade in dining options that we have all been waiting for. They have selected quite a few of foodies well known favorites like Salt & Straw, Evergreens, Slate Coffee Roasters etc as the winning bidders to take up the very desolate Concourse A.
Also Farestart is getting an upgrade with not just one new location, but several. Amazon is donating space on their campus to allow for new Farestart restaurants, training classrooms and more to help Farestart launch their Food Apprenticeship Program in July.
Our Pick of the Week
F.O.B Poke, Belltown - There is an overwhelming number of poke places in the greater Seattle area, but this one is by far the best one of the bunch in my opinion.
Okra Pakora - Pakora's are a staple for iftar ( meal to break fast) in any Pakistani household. It involves smothering vegetables in chickpea flour and spices, then deep frying them. This recipe by tamarindkitchen has me drooling because it uses my favorite vegetable.
New Sh*t in Town
Satay Bar, Greenwood - The chef/owner is bringing his Bangkok roots to Seattle. Think Thai chicken satay with the flavors of South Asian cuisine.
Happy Grillmore, Central District - Those that brought you Nate's Chicken and Waffles, are now bringing you burgers from the Portland food cart that started it all. The burger joint will be neighbors to Nates' Chicken and Waffles.
Next Level Burger, Roosevelt - If you are into burgers but not beef, this one is for you. All their burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, shakes, sides are plant based. You read that right, no animal products not even in the shakes. It will be open this August inside the Whole Foods in Roosevelt.
Seattle, What's Happening?
Solstice Night Market Pop-up, 6/17 - To celebrate the Summer Solstice and hopefully warmer weather thereafter, the South Lake Union Saturday Market is extending into the night on June 17th.
Night Market at Chophouse Row, 6/14 - Speaking of night markets, if you haven't already been to the weekly Wednesday night markets that occur in the Cap Hill, you really need to.
