Seattle Day 3: Teriyaki

Osaka Teriyaki
There’s always more time to squeeze in 1 more meal, right? It was sad but I have finally reached Tuesday, my last day in Seattle but heck I was also happy because I knew I would be in SF in a few short hours. During my whole trip I knew exactly what I was going to eat for my last Seattle meal.

I have read in the Seattle Magazine the phenomenon of teriyaki in Seattle. I wanted teriyaki! It’s such a simple dish to make and oh so satisfying to eat. The plan was to head to Happy Teriyaki around 10:30am, eat, head back to the hotel, pack, check out and get to the train to the airport. Happy Teriyaki was located in the basement, next to a smoke shop, of a building near all the fancy shops. Aaannnddd of course when I got there they weren’t opened. So plan b! I saw on Foursquare, on my phone, that there was Osaka Teriyaki right on Pike Street.

Seattle Day 2: Crumpets, Bao, Oysters, And Spicy Meatballs

The Walrus & the Carpenter
Even though I have traveled alone before I have always had friends whom I was staying with to hang out with. This trip to Seattle was my very 1st time traveling alone alone and it was fantastic. I woke up whenever I wanted, did whatever I wanted and went wherever I wanted. It was nice to go at my own pace. The lone traveler, sitting at the bar drinking and randomly chatting with other people at the bar. I need to do it more often, need to be more out of my comfort zone.

Seattle Day 1: Fried Egg Sandwich, Piroshky, Ramen, And Pizza

Flying into Seattle on Christmas Day was probably not a great idea because nothing was opened when I landed around 5pm. I had always wanted to visit Seattle again to sort of explore more than just the downtown area. Last time I was there it was 2006 and with a group of friends. We did most of the touristy things like going to the Space Needle and visiting the 1st Starbucks at Pike Place.

So Christmas Day in Seattle. It was rainy, gloomy and quiet. I stayed at the Ace Hotel, $99 per night but shared bathrooms with the rest of the guests plus complimentary breakfast and Stumptown coffee. Ace Hotel was a good few blocks away from Pike Place so I was away from any tourists crap but close enough. It was also surrounded by a bunch of great local bars and hang-outs.
