#sEATtle: Red Cow

February 23, 2018

I like to eat. A lot. Food is bae. Therefore, I figured I would post reviews of the places I go to give you a little insight and maybe some ideas on where you might want to nom with your friends or special someones. Plus, it gives me an excuse to pig out on Seattle's best eats and not feel bad about it, because work!

Before we start, though, I want to make one thing perfectly clear, I am NOT a professional food nerd, nor do I want to be. I don't know the intricacies of French cooking. Heck, I don't even know how to spell "intricacies." It also means that if you ask me what the best burger is, I'll probably say Lil Woody's before I suggest any kind of "gourmet" burger, unless that gourmet burger has an egg on it. Then gourmet burger wins (any burger with an egg on it wins really.) Also, my idea of a fancy pizza is anything with more than two toppings. Basically what I'm getting at is consider these restaurant reviews for the common man/woman.

Got it? Good, let's roll!

Red Cow

1423 34th Ave

There are a ton of really good steak joints here in Seattle, especially in or near downtown. BUT one of my favorite places to catch a case of meat sweats lies tucked away in the Madrona neighborhood. Seriously, I like that hood, some good restaurants and most importantly, pretty easy to find parking. SUCH a rarity in this damn city!  Anyway, let's talk about Red Cow....


Brussel Sprouts: I still can't believe that these things are still so popular but they are, and I appreciate it. 

Mushrooms: Seattle does mushrooms better than most places, and Red Cow is no different. I honestly could have eaten this whole bowl myself, but you know, manners. Stupid manners.

Frites: I like how you can make a french fry fancy just by changing the name of it to "frite." Jokes aside, this place specializes in steak and frites, and for good reason. Crisp on the outside and super soft on the inside. I'm also pro-aoli, so this was my jam. 

Waygu Ribeye Cap: DUDEBRO!!!!  I don't even know what to say about this melt in your mouth hunk of dead cow other than you will think about it days after tasting it. I won't tell anyone if you want to lick your screen right now, I get it. 

For reasons I haven't quite figured out, other than I'm trying to live past 50 and have a smoking hot girlfriend I would like to not make laugh every time I take off my shirt, I haven't eaten red meat since the beginning of the year. I thought breaking the streak for one of my favorite places would be a good idea, far better than say, smashing some Arby's in a moment of weakness.

I was wrong, Red Cow makes a steak so good that now all I can think about is going back. IT'S A REAL DELICIOUS PROBLEM

Go here if...You want a good case of the meat sweats with no remorse

Don't go here if...You are off the red meat and want to stay that way.
