Yesterday I told you about part 1 of our first day in Seattle and it was certainly jam packed and full of fun, however, the most delicious part is still to come.
After exploring the gorgeous waterfront trail along the Puget Sound and the Olympic Sculpture Gardens we still weren’t ready for dinner. Instead we went Trolling.
That is, we drove around the Queen Anne neighbourhood and found the Freemont Troll!
This is certainly the most creative use of an overpass I’ve ever seen.
On our way to the Troll my Whole Foods radar went off so we naturally made a pit-stop on our boat ride back to town for dinner.
I stocked up on snacks for the road and bars for home.
After the pit stop we made our way to Serious Pie, a Tom Douglas restaurant, for dinner.
The Tom Douglas group of restaurants was part of an awesome list of Seattle attraction that Leah from Leftovers for Lunch put together for me. While all of the Tom Douglas restaurants sounded great it was Serious Pie and pizza’s in a wood fire oven that called our names.
We knew we were onto something good when we arrived at the restaurant because the line was out the door after 7pm on a Sunday night. As we waited the restaurant sold out of 2 types of pizza and we came very close to drooling at the delicious aroma.
Finally a table was ours and we wasted no time ordering, starting with the spicy Kale salad to share and a glass of white wine.
The Italian Kale, pine nuts, calabria peppers, parmesan cheese and a light oil based dressing layered together to bring out the best in each ingredient, perfection!
Apologies for the crappy flash photography, it was late and very dark in the restaurant.
The restaurant sold out of two pizzas I wanted to try which made it easy to decide on the chanterelle mushroom pizza with truffle cheese.
I love pizza.
It’s one of those foods I could eat day or night but to be considered a favorite it has to be something amazing.
This pizza was not amazing.
This pizza was super fantastic, blow your mind, amazing. In fact it was so good that my eyes closed with my first bite.
The dough was crusty and soft, light and rich. The sea salt was the perfect contrast to highlight the rich chanterelle’s. In short this wasn’t just food, it was an incredible experience.
My friend Jules was equally thrilled with her yukon gold potato, rosemary, pecorino cheese pizza.
If you find yourself in Seattle, do yourself a favour and stop by Serious Pie. You can thank me by ordering the cherry cannoli for dessert which we would ordered if we had any room.
Now if only they could delivery their pizza’s to Canada, I guess I’ll just have to go back.
