Seattle Restaurant Week 2012

Chan – Bulgogi Sliders

Chan –  Seafood Scallion Pancake

Chan – Poached Black Cod with Braised Daikon

Seattle Restaurant Week is here again.  If you haven’t been yet do not forget to go.  This is a opportunity for folks to take advantage of the great restaurants Seattle has to offer.

Seattle Restaurant Week has been on for two weeks and the last day is today, October 25th.  Do not miss if you haven’t been.  You have over 100 restaurants to choose from that will offer a $28 three course dinners or a $15 lunches.

This is a great time for Seattle restaurants to show what they can do for a reasonable price and get customers they would usually not get, but also this is a great time for us foodies to go to our favorite places and get a good 3-course meal for only $28.

Since there is only one day left for this amazing offer and with over 100 restaurants to choose from that is a very hard task to figure out which place you should go to.  So I am giving you my top 5 places to go to.  These are new or different place and not on my usual going out list.  On top of that I am telling you what I ordered or would order on the menu.

You can view the full list of restaurant on the Seattle Restaurant Week website but below is my top 5 list.

Don’t miss this opportunity!

Here is my top 5 restaurant list:

Chan – This is a modern Korean restaurant.  I used to live in Korea for 5 years so i know my Korean food.  These guys i think nailed it when it comes to a modern Korean Restaurant.  I know there are a few very good Korean places to eat in Seattle but this is different.  They modernized it.  They still have the kimchi, bulgogi, scallion pancakes etc. But for those that do not want the full Korean experience with the 100 little side dishes and not knowing what half the stuff is, but still want to enjoy the best Korean flavors, then this is the place for you.  I would go back here any day.  The place is small and it is kind of dark but the food is excellent.

The $28 menu is a 4 coarse meal.  I had to order the bulgogi sliders.  We ended up ordering more of those they were really good.  Then i had the Seafood Scallion Pancake, which included some squid.  It was also excellent.  It came on a steamy cast iron, felt like you were getting it right off the stands from the streets of Korea.  Great touch. Then i had the Poached Black Cod with Braised Daikon, also very good and cooked to perfection.   We also tried a few things of the menu.  I had to have some kimchi, so we had the kimchi sampler, just excellent fresh kimchi.  We then had the Chicken Wings, also good but slightly on the sweet side.  And then we had the Tuna Tartar as well.  For dessert i ordered the Ginger Creme Brulee.  Usually Korean restaurants aren’t the best at desserts, but this was delicious.  A must try place if you like Korean food or want to try some but never dared before.

The Tin Table – This is a small plate place, i really like the exposed brick wall here, just gorgeous   Wish my living room looked like that.  Very nice place.  Here i would get the Smoked Trout Salad with local apples, celery root, horseradish, spicy greens.  Then for entrees i would get the Crispy Duck Confit with root vegetable and date hash, port and duck jus.  For dessert the Butterscotch Budino.

Local 360 – What i like about this place is that they use local natural food.  I wish there were more places that would do that.  With all the topics of what GMO and pesticides and how bad they are for you.  Here i would go right for the Bacon and Smoky Blue Cheese Fritter, then i would have the Mushroom stuffed Pork Tenderloin with Honey Sage Butter and for dessert Bread Pudding.

Restaurant Bea – This is a new Madrona local place with a country charm but the taste of a home cooked meal. Here i would start with the Wild Boar Meatballs pesto & golden raisin pureé, then move on to the Braised Pork Ribs country-style ribs, herbed spätzle & choucroute, and end with Chocolate Bread Pudding whipped cream.

Rione XIII – I have been here a few times and really enjoy thier food.  The decor is awesome, love the exposed brick wall here too. For lunch i usually get their Smoked Fish which is just delicious.  For the $28 menu i would start off with Chef’s Choice Antipasti since that is the only choice, then i would go with the Chicken Cacciatore tomato, bell pepper, mushroom and for dessert i would do something different since these sound amazing, Sweet Polenta Fries with caramel sauce.

    Ewa, I was lucky enough to be in
    Vancouver, BC last January with my
    daughter {visiting a potential university}
    during their Food Week. It is a lot of
    fun and a great way to try some new
    and delicious foods. All of your reviews
    sound amazing. I’d particularly like to
    try Local 360. Last summer when we
    were in Seattle for one night, we only
    ate at the baseball field, but even that
    was above-average fare!

    Happy Friday,
    xo Suzanne

    @Suzanne: I’m a German living in Vancouver and after living, travelling and eating all over Europe and North America, it actually is one of my favourite cities to eat out.
    “Eat Out Vancouver” is usually in February, if I remember correctly. :)
    Seattle’s restaurants are very fantastic too, I wish I could visit soon.

      Suzanne, I go to Vancouver at least once or twice a year i love it there. Love the Asian food, it is much better than Seattle and the shopping is great too. Thanks for stopping by.
