Szechuan Noodle Bowl
Tasty, as always. I had pork noodle soup with pickled vegetables. It was very tasty. Plus we had post stickers and a green onion pancake. I'm quite fond of this place.

India Express

I haven't eaten here in years, so I thought it would be worth giving it another try. It was okay. I order Bhuna Lamb Gosht, and it was pretty good, but the quality of the lamb was pretty low. The rice was fine, but they don't add much spice (turmeric, cloves, cinnamon, cardamom pods), so it was basically just white basmati rice. I still think Annapurna Cafe is better if you're looking for Indian on Broadway.

Indian buffet. It was fine.

Rice N Spice
I had pad thai with beef today, 3 stars. It was not 3 stars, more like 0 stars. Oh well. Other than that it was pretty tasty. I never get beef pad thai for some reason. I would probably get it again. They use pretty good quality beef and it manages to get a little crispy around the edges but stay tender.

We had hoped to sit outside but the only table big enough for our group was reserved. I had a california chicken sandwich which was okay but ended up making me feel a little bit nauseous for some reason.

Seattle Deli
Banh mi sandwiches, barbecue pork. Very good, as always. This is probably one of the top 3 Vietnamese delis in Seattle. I'm always happy to eat their sandwiches.

Floyd's Place
Ribs, hotlink, with co-workers. It was good today. The ribs were a little bit charred but still pretty fatty and flavorful.

The Signature

This is a new Vietnamese place replacing an upscale restaurant on Lower QA. This was my first time eating there, and frankly it wasn't super impressive. I had a noodle bowl with pork skewers, and it was pretty bland all around. There just wasn't much flavor there. I expected more for the price, which was pretty high, like $11.00 for my bowl plus 1 small egg roll. Pho at this place is $8.00 for a small. That's pretty ridiculously expensive in my opinion. Oh well. I'll probably actually go again some day, but not any time soon.

For some reason I really wanted a burger, so we went here. I used to go here all the time for some reason. It's nothing particularly special; just bar food. The burger was fine. It was actually better than I remembered, though for some reason slightly bland.

Tacos El Asadero

Delicious tacos. It's been a while since the last taco Sunday. They were great.

We took a brief tour of a couple of bakeries today, specifically:

Honore Artisan Bakery

At this bakery we were most interested in finding Parisian-style Macarons, but I also got a ham/gruyere croissant that was excellent. I dare say it was better than Cafe Besalu's famous offerings.

We also went to:

Bakery Nouveau

We ended up getting some more Macarons here, along with a couple of thick slices of what I have known as Italian Bakery Pizza or Sicilian-style pizza, which is about an inch or so thick, with a fairly soft moist crust. The slices we got had various italian cheeses, soft rounds of goat cheese, tomato sauce, and caramelized onion. It was delicious.
The Macarons from both places were very good, but the flavors of the Nouveau examples were more vibrant and interesting. I'd eat either again though.

I'm not sure how to even start writing about this. I'll simply say that it was very good, but the 9 course tasting menu was an obscene amount of food and ended up feeling like a physical assault by the end of the evening. We came out of the meal feeling violated somehow. I will update this post in the next few days with pictures, perhaps.
