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!

So I'm a sauna guy now.  I love it.  I don't know if it calls back to my desert upbringing or if its because I get to walk around with only a towel on, but a good sweat really does it for me.  Anyway, I had an appointment at City Sweats on Stone Way (10/10 would recommend) over the weekend and found this little hole in the wall joint on my way home.  Now, as we all know, hole in the wall Asian restaurants are a real crap shoot.  Would it be the perfect encore to a relaxing detox day?  Or would it leave me crying on the bathroom,detoxing in the worst way?  Lets eat and find out!

EATS

Green Beans- Always the perfect starter to a meal. PLUS you get the veggie thing out of the way early so you can focus on fried rice and all the meats the rest of the way!  

Egg slimey thing-  Listen, this is probably the weirdest thing I've ever put in my mouth, and I have put some weird stuff in there!  I don't even know how to describe this.....I guess it would be something along the lines of tasting like egg foo young but with the consistency of slime.  I know, weird.  Here's the thing though, it was actually pretty good.  

Pork xiao long bao-  Soup dumplings for lyfe. Period. End of story.  They're little balls of comfort. 

Hand shaved noodles-  Not as good as Snappy Dragon, but this was probably my 2nd favorite dish of the day.  Chewy and delicious, and smothered in gravy.  

Salt and Pepper Chicken-  Salty, crispy, and delicious.  I would eat a hundred of these right now!  Think a classy version of KFC popcorn chicken.

 

Seattle is a wonderful food town, you know that, but don't forget that not every awesome restaurant is owned by a celebrity chef with a killer instagram.  Roll the dice once in a while and try new places, see what happens.

Go here if...you want quality szechhuan style food and aren't afraid of going to places that aren't on the front page of Yelp.

Don't go here if...you are looking for a fine dining experience with all the bells and whistles.
