Local Flavors

20140225-055554.jpg I always love reading about new things to try in one’s own city. So I thought I would pass these on to you. Places to try if you live here, and places to put on your list if you come for a visit. Which I highly recommend. Seattle is such a special place. The water, the mountains, the flowers, world class food–I could go on and on. The above amazingly yummy Greek yogurt from Ellenos. They have a stand at the Pike Place Market. You would almost think it was an ice cream or gelato stand, as all the yogurts are presented as such, and they spoon them right into containers for you on the spot. I opted for a Ball jar as the container, which I thought was such a cool way to offer selling it. The idea is that you bring it back and they refill it. Lemon curd with Greek yogurt, oh my. Delicious. So good it could be served just ‘as is’ for dessert, but would be equally fab with granola for breakfast. The below, very darn tasty cookies from Hello Robin on 19th. The neighborhood around this shop is growing, and I am a sucker for a good cookie. It drew me right in. Tons of flavors. All presented in a very sweet space. Ice cream too. TPS was quite happy a box came home after my grocery shopping expedition.
