Favorite Seattle Bites

Get out and enjoy some of the best eats in the country!

· El Diablo.  There are many things to love about Tango (corner of Pine and Boren).  But you’ll never get tired of their sinful combo if chocolate mousse, burnt meringue, tequila caramel, chocolate nibs and cayenne.  Wow...
· Banana Cake with Savory Coconut Sauce.  Monsoon (19th Avenue East on Capitol Hill) is our date night old-standby.  At meal’s end, the-chicken-vs.-the-egg discussion arises:  which is more mind-blowing, the moist goodness of the banana cake or the sublime, savory coconut sauce?
· Salted Caramel.  That’s my favorite flavor at can’t- miss Molly Moon’s (Wallingford & Capitol Hill). 
· Triple Chocolate Cookie.  Seattle has a hip new spot or food trend every week.  But Grand Central Bakery (Eastlake) is like a forgotten treasure, serving up fantastic fare for years and years.  From time-to-time I treat myself to one of these heart-stoppingly good cookies, but it’s all great at GCB!
