New Foods in Seattle!

Crispy Roll

I am currently in Seattle for work. So far it has been a lot of work and a lot of fun.The food in Seattle is just about the same as in Chicago. I am sure that the seafood tastes better, but I haven't had the opportunity to eat fresh fish yet. I did discover a local beer called Mac & Jack. It is a darker beer, a little sweet, very tasty! I hope Binnys has it when I get home!

I have also had the opportunity to try some new foods while I have been here.

Our second night here, a coworker and I went to the Mexican Cantina. We started with an appetizer consisting of guacamole, mango salsa, ceviche and grilled provolone atop eggplant. The provolone eggplant was one of the best things I have eaten. It had amazing flavors that mixed in your mouth such as garlic and cilantro. Everything else was also very delicious including the chicken tacos we shared for an entree and the churros I had for desert!

Yesterday, I went out with some coworkers, including my bosses bosses boss! He took us to a Japanese restaurant (Izakaya Wann) and ordered a few happy hour appetizers for everyone to share. I knew this would be a good time for me to try new things.

The waitress brought us a sample of the crispy roll. I have no idea what was in it, and I have never been a fan of sushi, but I actually really liked it. I had the opportunity to try a California roll also, which I didn't really like. I do not like the seaweed that is wrapped up in the roll. The texture of it bothers me, but it wasn't horrible. The only roll I didn't try was the spicy tuna roll, I am not ready for that!
