Lunch at Habit Burger Grill

When you want a nice burger but don't feel like paying $14 for one, check out Habit Burger Grill. The prices were way cheap for the quality of what we got. This burger chain, located near Southcenter Mall, started in California in 1969. So their motif is California style, with photos of palm trees on the wall.
Their burgers are Charbroiled and I was surprised by how tasty it was for the low price of around $4. I chose the Teriyaki Charburger. It arrived on a warm, toasty bun with grilled pineapple, teriyaki sauce, cheese, shredded lettuce, and tomato. You can also get it with caramelized onions and pickles which I went without, because I knew it would be too sloppy for me. It was pretty saucy because of the teriyaki sauce, but luckily the burgers were partly wrapped to minimize the spillage. My husband chose the Charburger and it had lettuce, caramelized onions, cheese, shredded lettuce, pickles, and mayo.
Our boys each had something from the kid's menu. One of our boys had …

Unique Food and Drinks I Tried This Year

This year I tried some unique eats. Some foods that were new to me and some were food fads now in the states. I was also inspired by some new flavors now available in Seattle. We are behind New York and Los Angeles in the food world, so its nice when new places open that we've never seen here before. A few things I tried were from a visit to Portland where I had some foods not available in Seattle, so that was exciting. Below are fifteen food and drinks that captured my attention. They were either delicious or beautiful and begged to be photographed. Or eating or drinking them was so much fun that I'll never forget it. Either way, these food and drinks left an impression on me and I want to share them here with you.

Dinner at Bok A Bok Fried Chicken

I recently found some hot spots in White Center to grab a bite. I've blogged about Li'l Woody's and Proletariat, that are both well worth the visit. So I covered burgers and pizza, so now how about some Korean Fried Chicken and Biscuits? Sound good to you? It sounded mouthwatering and delicious to me, so we headed to the West side and checked out Bok A Bok Fried Chicken.
Their concept is quick serve and the space is small with limited seating, so I recommend getting there around 5:00 when they open for dinner. A nice draw is they sell beer and hard cider for us diners 21 and over. I was so looking forward to sipping on an Adult Slushy, but they didn't have their slushy machine going since not enough customers order them. Boo for me, so I chose a hard apple cider and my husband had a Rainer beer.
They brought us our food and we dug in. Right away I could tell this meal was going to be a tasty one. My Chicken Strips were extra crispy and crunchy on the outside. The ch…

Brunch at Cheeky Cafe

Sundays and Brunch go together like peanut butter and jelly. One spot in Seattle to check out is Cheeky Café found at 1700 South Jackson St. The atmosphere was relaxed and the servers were very polite and laid back. I also found the service to be fast and we received our food in good time. It was very family friendly so our kids fit in nicely. Plus, they have Mimosas. Because for me it isn't really Brunch if I don't have a Mimosa.
To start, we all shared an order of the Cinnamon Fry Bread with some Raspberry Freezer Jam. They arrived fresh and piping hot to the table and tasted reminded us of donuts, and that's not a bad thing at all. My husband had the Chicken Fried Steak and my kids each the Onesies-a plate with one pancake, eggs, and a slice of bacon. I had the Cheeky French Toast with eggs and bacon. The French Toast is filled with pastry cream, and your choice of either chocolate, bananas, or berries. I chose chocolate, of course, and then the French Toast is deep f…
