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.

Great State Burger
New Burgers in town

A new addition to the Seattle’s Fast Food Burgers scene!

The menu is very short: Burgers, Fries, and Milkshakes.

The burger (single patty) tasted great.  I liked the kind of brioche bun and the grass fed beef meat. Not spectacular, but very good.

It looks like they wanted to do something like Shake Shack in NYC. I need to go back to New York and check again if Great State Burger is close or not to the famous New York Burgers! 😉

Great State Burger 11am-9pm

2 locations so far:

Laurelhurst at 3600 NE 45th St  &  SouthLake Union at 2041 7th Ave

It is already the season for Marination Makai

When it is 80 degrees in April, I like to walk along Alki Beach and enjoy the view of the Puget Sound.

A few nights ago we parked close to Marination and walked 2 hours after which we indulged ourselves with Beer, Margarita, and Chardonnay at Marination Makai.

My kids loved the Fish and chips with the miso tartar and the rest of us shared kimchi fried rice (spicy), pork sliders, and spicy pork tacos. I always order fish tacos and the green salad, I love the dressing and the peanuts on the top.

We arrived too late for the Happy hour (3pm-6pm) and it was a little bit dark.

Good to know: We had a dog with us and were able to have him with us on the patio.
