This was stop number 2 on our Seattle food adventure trip and this is my first time seeing pike place market. It is not at all what I expected, in fact, it has surpassed all my expectations and it was definitely an experience worth repeating. I found everything to be nice and entertaining. The food had some good and some bad highlights, the people there were really friendly.
So here are some of our pics for the day…………………….
This was part of the trip because Colleen wanted to try the chowder here as it was suppose to be the ‘best chowder’. We walked around the entire marketplace looking for this place, and eventually found it across the street.
They have quite a few selections of soups and it is more than enough to choose from for lunch. Colleen got her bread bowl soup which was filled with clam chowder.
BB got their soup sampler, which is what I should have done and it was nice because you could pick up to 4 types of soups from their selection of eight. Next to it is their crab sandwich. I hated it! The bun was ridiculously massive and the filling had no taste to it. It was definitely not good, and guess how much it was???? TOO MUCH!
Yeah, this place was so out of place, hahaha but we had to give it a try, and BB went with their crab rangoon, One bite and it was straight into the garbage, LOL this was horrible dude. Horrible! LOL You should have seen the look BB had when he was eating this LOL . Deep fried fake crab with mayo and it was nasty, BB ripped it outta my hand and threw it in the garbage he was so disgusted ahhahahahahah good times.
This was right next along the side street area where there was a whole bunch of shops and food stalls…naturally we had to give it a gander and try out a cheesecake for ourselves.
This place was super crowded and it was making fresh cheese on the side, so I’m already assuming this is a cheese place and what else to grab in a cheese place than mac n cheese! Was it cheesy? Only super cheesy! Very rich and cheesy. One bite was more than enough to send you into a cheese shock. LOL
BB wanted to visit this place and man did he order a lot of different things here. I did not get to try any of it believe it or not. LOL I was already too full.
Colleen chose this item. Its a hazelnut chocolate roll. It was very sweet and only a tiny amount of the hazelnut in the dollop pictured. It would have been nice if it had more chocolate spread out evenly. Pastry was nice and flaky.
We actually walked by this place earlier but decided to eat at the other chowder place first. But later on when we passed by it again, BB wanted to give their version of clam chowder a try, so he sent BG inside and to order a cup so that we can judge for ourselves. And the verdict…….Pike place chowder was better in our opinion!!
Overall our trip here was fun and there were many things to see and buy. Obviously not all places we ate at was delicious but it’s part of our adventure and we all had fun, onwards to our next stop!
