Meme last day

The last question comes from [personal profile] raveninthewind: Tell me your favorite Seattle restaurants/eateries, and what you order

This is challenging because I really don't get to go out much anymore. And I love to go to restaurants, but with few people to hang out with and my back issues, these days there's not much excuse to go out, and i hate to eat out alone. But there are a couple places I love, and some places I've been to recently that I would love to go back to.

One of my favorite places is really just a tiny hole-in-the-wall creperie in the Pike Place Market called Crepe de France. I just love the french ham and cheese crepe, it's so satisfying and simple, and sometimes I splurge and get the banana-Nutella-almond one afterward.

Also at the Market, I love Le Pichet, which is a small French bistro. I have had some truly lovely meals here, and I usually get something simple like the baked egg and ham, or the pate, or the mussels, and the bread is divine here. It's the first place I ever had honey lavender ice cream, and tasting that was inspirational in me wanting to learn how to make good ice cream in unusual flavors.

French of a different variety, Toulouse Petit on Queen Anne is fantastic New Orleans cuisine, and one of the few places in town I can get my food weakness -- a croque monsieur (or a monte cristo -- there's something about those things I love). I had a tasting lunch here with some friends once and everything I ate was fabulous. With hundreds of things on the menu, though, this is one of those places that's just not much fun by yourself, and it's best when you can eat with a bunch of other people and share bites.

A few weeks ago, a bunch of us went to a sushi place on Capitol Hill called Momiji that was fucking spectacular. I really want to go there again. I don't even remember what I had, just that it was jawdroppingly good.

And for basic, American-style Chinese food, I love Snappy Dragon up in north Seattle, but I don't get to go there as much as I'd like. My favorite Thai place in town closed a few years ago, and I haven't found one yet to replace it. I do have a favorite Indian place, but they closed a while ago due to a fire, and the past couple times we've gone by, they were still closed, and I'm scared India Gate is never going to reopen. I mean, I love this place so much i drive quite far to get to it; I will cry if they never reopen.
