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.

Everyday : 8am to 3pm

In May, I went with a friend, for their Lunch Break Cooking class. In front of 10 people, a chef demonstrated 3 recipes from a cook book. That day, it was the famous and inspiring Jerusalem cookbook by Yotam Ottolenghi. I already had the book and was happy to be able to test knew recipes from it.

First, we had a baby spinach salad with almonds, dates and pita, then turkey and zucchini meatballs with yogurt sumac sauce and finally a semolina coconut cake. Everything was delicious and I made these recipes for guests at home and they loved them!
