11 Reasons It’s Great To Be A Foodie In Washington
Recently, Seattle was ranked 10th in the nation for foodie cities. And while that’s quite an honor, we happen to think the entire state is an amazing place to be for foodies. Not convinced? here are 11 good reasons it’s great to be a foodie in Washington:
1. We've got some of the best Farmers Markets in the entire nation, especially this famous one.
Pike Place Market is a tourist destination, but plenty of Seattle locals shop there for staples, as well.
2. We grow some of the best produce in the universe.
Apples, pears, cherries, asparagus... you name it.
3. The restaurants in our bigger cities (Seattle, Tacoma, Spokane)... are second to none.
This is the Flint Creek Cattle Co. in Seattle, which serves savory small plates and steak that practically melts in your mouth.
4. ... and even our small towns are known for their incredible eateries.
At Nourish in Sequim, half of the menu ingredients come straight from the onsite garden.
5. Even our food trucks are phenomenal.
This is the Taqueria Los Primos food stand in Yakima, but you'll find epic street tacos and other goodies all over the state.
6. When it comes to fresh seafood, we're seriously spoiled in Washington.
Taylor Shellfish Oyster Bar is one of the many, many places that serve oysters to die for.
7. If you prefer to wash your dinner down with a nice glass of wine or a cold beer, you're in luck.
We pretty much dominate those industries as well.
8. Going out to breakfast? Good luck making a decision, because we do the most important meal of the day right here.
Who can resist the huge portions of delicious goodness at Dolly's Cafe in Spokane?
9. A ridiculous number of our restaurants have been featured on TV shows.
Bruno's European Restaurant in Tacoma was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
10. Even our small local marketplaces are amazing.
Wenatchee's Pybus Public Market is one of many local artisanal markets that sell amazing local food.
11. Both Eastern and Western Washington are agricultural hubs.
If you live in Washington, it’s a given that you love to eat. But have you created a
restaurant bucket list?
