TMA Mondays: Good News!


It's all good news this week! Mutsuko Soma is back and she is crowdfunding to give her soba pop-up, Kamonegi a permanent home in the old Art of the Table space. Mutsuko specializes in handmade soba noodles and believe me she does it well. I had the opportunity to try her soba when she was the chef at Miyabi 45th, they definitely deserve a permanent home.

Crumble and Flake has been sold! Believe it or not, original owner Neil Robertson is all baked out and he will be placing crumble and flake in the capable hands of Toby Matasar owner of Niche gluten free café and bakery. Not to fear though, Crumble and Flake will stay exactly the same…for now.   After a while, Toby will add some of her own flair to the bakery while keeping its spirit alive. 

Other good new tidbits, Pike Place's new MarketFront is officially opened AND H Mart is finally in Seattle with a new U District location.


Our Pick of the Week

Hot Mama's Pizza, Capitol Hill - Hot Mama's is a ride or die Cap Hill staple. They have the perfect, greasy, cheesy, pizza you need after a night out or a day of celebration. They were even open this past July 4th and I was able to get a large sausage pizza just in time to see the fireworks with friends.

Sparkling Peach Cider - This peach cider by How Sweet Eats looks delicious! It's non-alcoholic but by the looks of it, it will taste just as good with a little splash of "something something". Try it out!


New Sh*t in Town

Lady Yum, South Lake Union - Lady Yum has a new outpost in the center of South Lake Union, close to newcomer 2120 and other favorites like skillet and great state burger. What can you expect? Macarons and Champagne!! Daily, there'll be 20 new flavors of macarons for sale AND happy hour from 4 - 10pm.

Revolution Pizza Music, Pioneer Square - RPM has taken over the Il Corvo Pasta Studio's old space and as you probably guessed by their name, they are all about pizza and vinyl music.  They serve pizza whole or by the slice and their open till midnight, so go by and check them out!
