dishcrawl seattle: gastronomic adventures.

Saturday, February 9, 2013

This past Tuesday, my main squeeze and I attended our very first Dischrawl! For those of you who are unfamiliar with the concept, be sure to check out my original post about it.

First stop of the night - one of my favorites: Local 360 - a sustainable restaurant that is known for using locally grown produce within a 360-mile radius. I've been to this quaint place many times, but was absolutely delighted that the dish prepared for us was not on the menu.. a little special treat for us Dishcrawlers.

spotted: me. instagramming my food.
Served to us by candelight, this was one of my favorite stops of the night.

Next, we ventured down 2nd Ave towards Sarajevo Lounge, a Bosnian club and restaurant.

on our way to the next stop for more yummy in our tummy

Hummus | Handmade lamb and beef sausage | Traditional Bosnian cream and roasted red pepper dipping sauces | Gyro slider

To be honest, I was very surprised at how tasty the food was... since I've always walked past the place and never been in. Not sure if it was my favorite place, but an interesting choice nonetheless to have on the Dishcrawl.

After that, we headed to one of my go-to places for take-out / where I go to satisfy my cravings for home cooking - Green Leaf, a Vietnamese restaurant. We were graciously welcomed in by the owner who explained the dishes in detail. I sort of didn't really pay attention, as I am all too familiar with this cuisine... just dug right into the yumminess.

Handmade fresh spring rolls | Sauteed shitake mushrooms with lemongrass  Mixed salad of green papaya, mangoes and lotus rootlets

To end the night on a sweet note, Holy Cannoli was the place to be for a custard-filled little sweet treat. My choice for the night? Limoncello.

My favorite place of the night? I'll pick two - Local 360 and Green Leaf.

And of course, I had to have a picture with Dishcrawl Seattle's Ambassador - Melissa.

Had a fun little Belltown adventure.Thanks, Dishcrawl Seattle for the splendid evening!

PS - Huge thanks to my main squeeze for taking great photos for me during the event.
