Seattle Foodie Outing Part 1: Spur, GastropubWednesday, June 17, 2009
I was lucky enough to meet up with one of my foodie friends in Seattle and he (who's name cannot be disclosed) is the Dark Knight of the culinary world in Seattle. He keeps the chefs and restaurants honest. He is also a bit of a ninja and nobody knows who he is. He eats like a ninja, signs the bill like Zorro, and then is gone. Pretty cool.
Well the Dark Knight Foodie of Seattle rounded up a couple of his Foodie friends and we went out to some of the finer establishments in Seattle.
The first place: Spur, Gastropub.
This place is a hip place to enjoy a drink and get a bite. We ordered the Tagliatelle: a pasta dish with parmesan foam, duck egg, and oyster mushrooms. Meh. It was a bit too tart for me and the foam simply added air.
Yakima Asparagus: asparagus with hollandaise sauce. Yum, but oh, you know how I love Seattle Asparagus.
Pork Belly Sliders: if the pork was cooked a second longer it would have melted like the witch in the wizard of Oz. It is the iPod of all pork belly sliders with it's perfectly cubical apple confit and bourbon gastric.
