(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.

Bar Melusine

Situated in Capitol Hill on the corner of Union Street and 11th avenue, Bar Melusine is a lovely place which benefits of light coming through its large windows. Everything in the decor is rather white with some green details – the green and white floor tiles looks beautiful. In short: I really like the atmosphere of the newest of Renee Erickson‘s Restaurants (The Whale Wins, Bateau, General Porpoise, The Walrus and the carpenter…).

In terms of food, the menu is mostly composed of (very) small plates, of seafood that are meant to be shared.

Each dish we ordered was good but none were particularly exceptional or  memorable. I only remember a series of small plates. May be our expectations were too high due to it being a Renee Erickson’s restaurants. But we will be going back to try new things.
