I am finally back in the Midwest after being in the Pacific Northwest for four days… and holy cow, I sure do miss the Seattle weather. Although, it’s gloomy and rainy, I would take that any day over this nasty humidity.
Seattle is truly a beautiful city and I cannot wait to plan my next trip back.
Soooo, I landed in Houston, TX.. here’s a glimse.
A quick layover later and I’m landing in Seattle. I could not believe how many pine trees were along the highway, it was surreal.. and I know that sounds cheesy, but it’s not everyday you see a million and one pine trees! First things first, we checked into our hotel, The Maxwell Hotel (I’ll post about it later), but here are the AMAZING BEDS. omg.
We throw our shit into the room and run down to the hotel bar because, hello, it’s vacation. We ordered this strong, delicious cocktail – pineapple infused vodka with champagne:
(yes, i bought the biggest tote ever for this trip). We head to dinner – The Steelhead Diner, right next to Post Alley and Pike Place Market.
I’ll tell you one thing – I had the best clam chowder in my entire life… (sorry, Dad..)
Alaskan Razor Clam Chowder (with apple smoked bacon and truffle oil drizzle)
Dungeness Crab & Bay Shrimp Tater Tots
Baked Macaroni (you can never go wrong)
Aaaaaand, last but not not least: Grilled Alaskan Troll Caught King Salmon (with mint tzatziki, garbanzo beans, and curried cucumber – tomato salad).
Ughhh, I miss the food already…
