US: Seattle, WA – Seattle’s Pike’s Place Public Market

Tuesday, August 13th, 2019

Not many public markets have quite the view as Seattle’s. It’s a warren of corridors, be prepared to get lost and have lots of yummy adventures amongst the fishmongers, produce stalls, craft stands and specialty food shops. This 108-year-old farmers’ market has become a Seattle tourist attraction which draws in more than 10 million visitors annually.

US: Seattle, WA – Starbucks Original Store

Tuesday, August 13th, 2019

Right across the street from the famous Pike’s Place Market is the famous Starbucks coffee shop. Since Starbucks’ original founders were 2 teachers and a writer, it is not surprising to find out that it was named after the first mate of the whale ship Pequod in the book, Moby Dick.

US: Seattle, WA – City Fish at Seattle’s Pike Place Market

Monday, August 12th, 2019

City Fish’s fish throwing fish mongers are one of the reason that the Pike’s Place Market is on the map. We’ve visited many food markets around the world but these guys are the only ones flinging fish across the fish stand and putting on a fun fishy show.

Canada: Sault Ste Marie, Ontario – Embers Smokehouse and Grill

Monday, July 22nd, 2019

Sometimes when you have a small plate table d’hote run of many dishes, you get hits and misses. Not at Embers Smokehouse and Grill in Sault Ste. Marie We scarfed down plate after plate of perfectly paired dishes. The black swatch on the carpaccio plate was garlic and believe or not those fluffy green things are holding tacos. This farm-to-table restaurant is also chef- to-table . A memorable meal.

Canada: Sault Ste Marie, Ontario – Scottish Pub in Sault Ste. Marie

Tuesday, July 16th, 2019

Total fun to meet a guy in a skirt in a pub. The owner of The Whisky Barrel struts it in his kilt as he got to follow his dream to open a Scottish pub. So sure there’s Haggis and Shepherd’s Pie but also fun whisky ice cream.

Canada: Sault Ste Marie, Ontario – Ontario Game at Outspoken Brewing

Tuesday, July 16th, 2019

Some people play games with people’s heads in a bar. Others play games on a board. This wooden one was a new one for me, called Crokinole which we played at Outspoken Brewing in Sault Ste. Marie. It was really hard to get in the middle.

Canada: Sault Ste Marie, Ontario – Indian Fare at Rasoi

Monday, July 15th, 2019

These are North Indian hot (both ways) appetizers served up in an adorable cart. I love it when you eat in a restaurant where you wind up with a collage of ethnic flavors which highlight Canada as a wonderful kaleidoscope of people. The butter chicken poutine says it all – east meets west in Sault Ste. Marie at Rasoi. In Hindi that name means kitchen, and the northern Indian fare here comes straight from home traditions.
