Alright so this isn’t Vancouver, but it’s close by and every summer needs a mini weekend road trip right?
Actually, this is the second time I went to Seattle in two months …. see my blogs here: https://migasdiary.wordpress.com/2015/05/23/seattle-washington-day-1-pioneer-square-bainbridge-island/
I basically covered the same things this time … just something different … like learning that the Quick Shuttle only costs $25 US to go down to the States! The ride was 4 hours long because there was something wrong with the bus and we waited a bit at the borders. We got off at Washington Convention Center and towards the waters was where our first stop was – Pike Place Market!
I came here last time and had the Ginger Beer, Beecher’s Mac and Cheese as well as going into the first Starbucks in Seattle. This time around, I was going to brave the long line ups for some other famous food. The first stop was Piroshky Piroshky Bakery!
Piroshky sells Russian pies, and they are really good. There are sweet and salty types. The line up wasn’t too bad but we had to get take away since there were few places to sit. See the menu here. Addy: 1908 Pike Place
We ate it while waiting for our next foodie place: Pike Place Clam Chowder Co.
While waiting in line, we got to take a look at the menu and decided what we were going to get – the sampler!
The sample means we get to choose any four types chowder of our choice. It’s 5 ounces is also quite a lot. We got New England, Smoke Salmon, Seafood Bisque and Market Chowder (which is like the chef’s special). The New England clam chowder is the best I felt.
After eating, we went to the Gum Wall at Post Alley, which I find a bit disgusting .. but everyone wants to leave their mark and then take a photo with it … As the name suggest, people leave their gum on this wall first because they were told they aren’t allowed to bring their chewing gum into the theatre .. and then it kinda became the thing to do.
Seattle – Pike Place – on the move to the next location – Bainbridge Island, again.
