Best Things to Eat in Seattle
This is proper Texas-style barbecue in Maple Leaf that is every bit as good as anything you would get in the Southern states. They serve up either beef or pork ribs on casual metal trays, with some of the best sides in the business including cornbread and coleslaw.
Do make sure to keep some space for dessert, as they serve up some wonderful homebaked pies.
With over 40 varieties of irresistible donuts to choose from and high-quality coffee to pair them all with, Top Pot Doughnuts truly excels at crafting a delectable experience from start to finish. They started out as a coffee store, so the tasty, hot coffee is certainly taken care of. All you have to do is decide which of their donuts you’re going to try first.
They pride themselves on sourcing the very best ingredients and that really shows when it comes to the end product. They also happen to be an ethically focused restaurant by contributing to worthy causes and adding value to the community.
Their wings come with various different sauces and are absolutely ideal to be devoured with some of their quality craft beers. An absolute gem of a restaurant.
A gem of a store tucked into the Chophouse Row building on Capitol Hill in Seattle, where they serve up seriously good ice cream.
They keep things simple with flavours coming from the farm – there is no need to overcomplicate things when the core product is this good.
The Fat Hen is one of the more laidback brunch spots in Seattle, as it’s more of a trendy cafe than a full-out restaurant. However, don’t let the size fool you, the food here is packed full of flavour. Strong mimosas are the perfect start to any Seattle brunch, and their skillets are famous amongst locals. One of the best brunch spots in Seattle? You bet.
They call themselves “a pizzeria with a bread baker’s soul”. You will get what they mean as soon as you walk in the door.
They serve up pies with blistered crusts, lightly textured with just enough structure and bite. The real beauty is how much confidence they have to keep the toppings simple and fresh. With dough, sauce and cheese this good you don’t need too much more.
Giddy Up Burgers have some spicy giddy up to them for sure. The patties are juicy and spicy, so make sure you can handle a bit of heat.
Get the appropriately-named Giddy Up Burger here. A burger that is rich with pepperjack cheese, jalapeños and a fire sauce. Wash it down with one of their 30 beers. Divine.
