On night one, we visited Poppy, a restaurant located in Capitol Hill. Poppy offers a thali,” a platter served to each guest holding a variety of small dishes. This is my foodie dream come true. We started off with the suggested eggplant fries with sea salt & honey. To be honest, I was quite skeptical. To my very surprise, I loved these fries and I wish I could recreate them at home. On to entrees, we ordered two. The standout for me was the carrot ravioli with king boletes, sage and spiced carrot sauce.
Moving on to a meal I couldn't leave Seattle without trying was Ramen. While I may eat a lot of foie gras and kobe beef, I am truly a simple girl with a heart to Ramen. It's where I learned I was a wannabee cook. At age 18, I always made my ten cent noodles gourmet while my friends looked at me with ten heads. I ordered Garlic Shouyu [chicken broth), Leslie ordered Tonkotsu From Hell [spicy pork broth] and Rachel got the special of the day Bacon Tonkotsu [pork broth]
Seattle is a spot for foodies of all palates to visit. Make sure you do your research prior to visiting and plan out your meals. You do not want to waste one during your visit.
