Matt’s in the Market is a hidden gem located in the Pike Place Market. It is a place where you can find a gorgeous view of the Pike Place Market sign! I love to bring my friends from out of town here when they visit Seattle, and then I can start a tour of Pike Place after.

Matt’s in the Market隱藏在派克市場的餐廳,
從餐廳內可以眺望到派克市場的招牌
當有朋友來西雅圖旅行,
我喜歡帶他們來這家餐廳
吃飽后從派克市場開始西雅圖之旅

▲Fishwich $19
Iceberg lettuce, mama lil’s pepper aioli, bacon shaved sweet onion on brioche. The Fishwich was yummy and not heavy at all! The toasted brioche bun was crispy outside and soft inside
魚漢堡的麵包是烤過得布里歐,
吃起來外酥內軟
雖然裡面加了很厚的培根
但整體起來并不覺得油膩

Came to Gelatiamo after visiting Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors exhibition at SAM. Gelatiamo is located on the corner of Union and 3rd. It provides a variety of different flavors every day. Every flavor here is so rich, creamy, delicious, and worth trying. Here, you can get two flavors starting with the small size, and they come in a generous portion.

在逛完草間彌生的無限鏡屋展後
我和朋友來Gelatiamo品嘗義式冰淇淋
它位在Union 和三街的轉角
Gelatiamo每天提供的的口味不一樣
無論哪個口味都很值得嘗試
這裡的small size可以選兩個口味
雖然是small size, 但一球的份量很足

Gelatiamo is definitely a nice place to chill at when you’re tired of walking around in the downtown Seattle area.
在西雅圖市中心逛累了,
不妨來 Gelatiamo 吃個冰淇淋休息一下

【Recipe】義式番茄肉醬 Bolognese Sauce

Recipe |義式番茄肉醬 Bolognese Sauce


義式番茄肉醬是一道很簡單又百搭的料理
可以拌義大利麺, 或做焗烤料理
自己在家做的番茄肉醬因為採用新鮮番茄,
所以吃起來更為清爽卻不失其風味
而且一次做一大鍋,
吃不完的就分裝冷凍
想吃隨時加熱就可以嘍

Bolognese Sauce is quite easy to prepare, and it can be used to prepare many kinds of meal. You can add bolognese sauce with spaghetti, or you can bake it. Since I used fresh tomatoes to make my bolognese sauce, it tasted lighter but flavorful. I always prepare extra bolognese sauce and separate the sauce into small bags to freeze for multiple easy uses. When I want to have some spaghetti bolognese, I can simply reheat it!

▲Salmon Tartine $15

烤過得麵包上鋪上法式酸奶油, 燻鮭魚, 酸洋蔥, 和菊苣
(抱歉我真的不太會將英文食材翻譯成中文)
吃起來很清新, 但稍顯過酸

Baked bread layered with creme fraiche, salmon lox, pickled shallots, and frisee on top. It was refreshing, but a bit too sour for me.

▲Saint Helens Burger $18

他們的的漢堡很多汁, 烤過得漢堡皮微焦微酥, 好好吃!

The burger was amazing, the Gebbers Farm grass fed ground beef patty was juicy, and the burger bun was a bit crispy, just the perfect combination.
