First up were drinks at Serious Pie and Biscuit in South Lake Union. We sat at the bar and I sipped a cocktail called Better Than A Mimosa which had Prosecco and blood orange and my husband had a drink with Tequila and grapefruit which was strong and fruity. Both drinks were bright in color and were a nice start to our date.
Dinner was a couple of blocks away at Shanik, an Indian restaurant, which sadly is closing in two weeks. We wanted to check it out while we could and are glad we did. We enjoyed the complimentary chai tea we started with and then we sipped on some cocktails. My husband had a Manhattan while I drank a Bollywood 411, which had Prosecco, Mango and Pomegranate. Then we had the Lamb-beef kebobs with creamy fennel seed curry. Finally, for our mains we shared the Kale, jackfruit and cauliflower curry with roasted almonds and the Beef short ribs in cinnamon and red wine curry. We loved all three dishes and the fresh, soft nan bread tasted wonderful dipped in the sauces. We adored the spices and many flavors we tasted. Our meal was very tasty and memorable.
Lastly, we'd been hearing of a bar on Capital Hill, Rumba, specializing in rum drinks and that you can get them served in coconuts. So we sipped on Mai Tai's in coconuts and it was a unique and fun experience.
