Most Decadent Dessert

Single Shot: Toasted Honey Pot de Crème

Single Shot Seattle

The elegant lines and dark wood accents at Single Shot Saloon and Kitchen immediately exude picturesque luxury. Treat yourself to the decadent Toasted Honey Pot de Crème where Chantilly cream with the crisp nutty compliment of sesame tuille will charm. Garnished with just a hint of clean, alpine sharpness, the juniper ties this together.

Best Thing on a Bone

Girin: Kalbi Marinated Short Ribs

Girin Seattle

Kalbi is Korean BBQ. This is the kind of meal that makes you want to lick your fingers – but don’t worry, you won’t need to because the meat on Girin’s Kalbi marinated Short Ribs is falling off the bone. Garnished with the salty sweet pickled perilla.
501 Stadium Pl S, Seattle, WA 98134; (206) 257-4259; girinseattle.com

Best Thing in A Bowl

Un Bien: West Caribbean Bowl

Un Bien

Un Bien has been called the new Paseo because the sandwiches are on point. But don’t limit yourself to a sandwich. The flavors of the island are beamed straight up to the Pacific Northwest in the original West Caribbean Bowl. A generous portion of jasmine rice is covered in seasoned black beans, drowned in warm salsa, shredded cheddar, sour cream, jalapeños, and one tender chicken thigh.
7302 15th Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98117; (206) 588-2040; unbienseattle.com

 

BEST THING FROM THE “C”

Manolin: Rockfish Ceviche

Manolin Seattle

Manolin was voted one of the best new restaurants of 2015 by Bon Appetite and it’s easy to see why. The clean nautical ambiance sets the tone for quality seafood and Caribbean undertones. Try the Rockfish Ceviche – the fish is light and citrusy which works nicely with the fried sweet potatoes coupled with buttery avocado.
3621 Stone Way N, Seattle, WA 98103; (206) 294-3331; manolinseattle.com

 

Appetite Crusher

Palace Kitchen: Loco Moco

Palace Kitchen

Did you know that Palace Kitchen has a rotating late night dish that will curb even the most satiated? The late night cuisine is a one dish only specialty served after 10 PM and is usually an all-out appetite crusher. Hurry over and don’t miss the best of Hawaiian comfort, Loco Moco: ketchup fried rice and topped with a beef patty, sunny side egg, and then smothered in mushroom gravy.
2030 5th Ave, Seattle, WA 98121; (206) 448-2001; tomdouglas.com

 

Guiltiest Pleasure

Ma’ono Fried Chicken & Whisky: Chicken Nugget French Toast

Ma'ono West Seattle

Take the normal already indulgent French toast dipped in egg then dredge it in savory chicken breading for a fried-chicken-like goodness. The best part about this brunch favorite is that it’s soaked in rich sausage gravy and topped in creamy, tropical coconut butter. Ono!
4437 California Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98116; (206) 935-1075; maono.springhillnorthwest.com
