just gazing down admiring the incredible snow covered mt rainier as we were getting ready to land early morning. so breathtaking.
the entrance to the public market. it was brisk and rainy, just how i like it. we stayed at the top of the hill at a boutique hotel called inn at the market - very classic but charming nonetheless.
just a man and his banjo with his trusty companion strummin' away.
a korean/american fusion joint that hit their flavors on the nose. no fuss or frills - just tasty clean ingredients.
i think this may be one of the best place i've ever eaten, really. what a perfect fusion of seafood (with an emphasis on oysters), crafty cocktails, classic hipster service, "france meets local fishing pub" decor, old school hip-hop music playing, lighting (as in the sun setting light), lewis carroll signage, stunning view, & super hip but understated neighborhood. i didn't want to leave. need i say more?
the walrus and the carpenter - check it.
moscow mule made by a true artisan - presented in a copper mug ta boot.
how sweet is the menu - just love the illustration.
i was feeling so nostalgic the entire trip and realized it was because it reminded me of my native home, san francisco.
what a great city - i can't wait to go back!
