  1. Was reminded of 2 more thin ones I like by eating them this weekend: Cafe Lago mobile Verace I'd put them both about 2/3 of the way down my thin list.
  2. thick: Kylie's Delfino's Bambino's sicilian (no longer on the menu last time I checked, but they'll still make it) All-Purpose Wallingford Pizza House Pizza Place in North Bend thin: Serious Pie Delancey--but crust too charred on last visit Phonenecia Zayda Buddy's Il Fornaio (downstairs) interested in trying: Big Mario's Fatty's Corner
  3. Intrigued by your post, I stopped in at Western Bakery Donut and Dim Sum for lunch yesterday. It's a the northwest corner of the strip mall anchored by Viet Wah, which is on the northeast corner of MLK and Graham. The good: Friendly service. Cheap!--1/2 of what I'd pay at House of Hong, 1/3 of what I'd pay at O'Asian. Great selection--my table was graced with steamed chicken humbau, green onion bread knot, sticky rice in the leaf, and steamed sparerib, among others. Egg custard tart was tasty. The bad: Took a long time--I was there about 75 minutes, and was not at any point dawdl
  4. It's my understanding that Mistral Kitchen opens for dinner Friday 12/18.
  5. This place is called Seatle Pie. I found the pie very nice, but not outstanding. I really enjoyed the process of going. The proprietors are very friendly and engaging. The husband was running the register, and the wife was pie-ifying a few feet away in the open kitchen. We got a slice each of peach and strawberry rhubarb, which were the only pies in the house at 4:30p on a Saturday. (They were busily making more.) They're doing only dessert pies now (along with sandwiches including homemade meatloaf sandwich), but anticipate expanding into savory pies in the next month or so.
  6. I hope I can be forgiven for not knowing where you live. Where's the new location?
  7. Simply Desserts or Morfey's (the guys that did *our* wedding cake): www.simplydessertsseattle.com www.morfeyscake.com
  8. I tried Bastille on opening night. I enjoyed the space and the energy, and the service was effective. The kitchen was a bit slow, but I have no trouble forgiving that on opening night. As to the food: The steak sandwich was amazing! The beef was rare and tender, the roll was fantastic, and all of the other flavors worked very well together. Might be improved by something sweet like fig or onion jam, but I would eat it over and over again just the way it was. The fries that came with the steak sandwich were not terribly fresh, and did not have crisp outsides or soft insides.
  9. I gave Peaks a try this weekend and really liked it - although I've never had frozen custard so I have nothing to compare it to. I described it to my parents as the soft ice cream of my youth. It tasted like a real dairy product but with the consistency of soft ice cream. They offer three flavors (vanilla, chocolate and the flavor of the day) and tons and tons of toppings. I had a chocolate cone so I can't speak to any of the toppings but I really liked it. Now, if they offered a swirl cone - I'd be in heaven. I'm pretty sure you can get a cone with a scoop of chocolate and a scoop of

  11. Didn't like it either. Unremarkable is a perfect characterization.
  12. After my disappointing experience with DFFT at Hudson -- http://mouthfulsfood.com/forums//index.php...p;#entry1018308 -- I'm looking for a more pleasing rendition: crisp on the outside, moist on the inside, with yummy real syrup. Anybody have a place to recommend? Thanks.
  13. The Dude + I have visited Hudson twice for breakfast and give gold stars to everything we've tried so far: housemade Bloody Mary, fresh-OJ mimosa, deep fried French toast, pulled pork omelette and shrimp+grits. The beer taps have had the handles on both times we've been there (I only noticed b/c they had Moose Drool the first time, but not the second). Maybe they were in the middle of changing them out during your visit(s), Tighe? Thanks. What was the french toast like? Not for the first time, I find myself answering my own. My visit to Hudson this morning was an e
