Ursa Minor on Lopez Island

It was a perfect day to go to Lopez Island and this jewel was a great way to end it.

After a long day of wandering on the Island, we were happy to stop at Ursa Minor for dinner.

We could have sat inside in a beautiful and unpretentious room (I love the wishbone chairs!) but we preferred to enjoy the sunset outside and watch the water and bikers riding along.

 

 

The whole experience was great and easygoing.

Ingredients at Ursa Minor are mostly locally-sourced and we started our meal with a refreshing local cider. Our party of three ordered almost everything on the menu!

Shishito peppers, peach and Ricotta – Heirloom tomato, new onion, plum – Summer squash, smoked roe, yogurt – Raw Albacore, shiitake, Nasturtiums – Chicken, sauerkraut, wild onion…

Each dish was delicious and made with flavorful ingredients.

This great experience ended our day trip to Lopez on an exceptional note.

Skillet Street Food
is 10 years old!

Skillet is 10 years old! Yes, it all began in 2007 with a cool old Airstream Food Truck. At that time, there were not that many Food Trucks around the city.

Throwback to Summer 2008 when we discovered how tasty and cool Street Food could be!

That day, we had the Thai cured duck confit with rice, coconut curry and peanuts and “The” Burger with Kobe beef, arugula and the famous Bacon Jam!

Skillet is a good option if you are hungry for some tasty and creative comfort food. It is a little pricey but this is the price for quality ingredients.

Back in 2017:

Here’s where you can find the Skillet Street Food on a regular basis or check the website for updates:
Every Thursday and Friday: McGraw Square at 5th & Olive
Every Thursday: Downtown Bellevue at 106th & 6th

Morsel,
(tasty) Biscuits and (good) Coffee

After a long run, I was cold and starving.  I needed a cup of good coffee and some good comfort food. It was a great day for a good biscuit.

I was around University District and went to Morsel, which I was not familiar with. Among the 3 sandwiches offered, I chose the Spanish Fly, a buttermilk biscuit with prosciutto, arugula, fried running egg, manchego, and pepper aioli.

The fresh baked biscuit was delicious and it was garnished with high-quality products.

The service is super friendly and people there really care about your opinion. So I told them that I really liked my “sammie”, as they called their sandwiches.
