Seattle Bite's Pike Place Food Tour






On a friend's great suggestion I looked into Seattle's food tours as something to do on my most recent trip to Seattle. I did some research on all the possibilities (e.g. Fine Dining Food Tour, Chocolate Food Tour, Cheese Food Tour, etc) and decided that the Pike Place food tours caught my interest the most. 

I decided to go with "Seattle Bite Food Tours"as the bites they had sounded most appealing to me. I have to admit reading in some of the reviews that this tour provides the "biggest" bites was also in favor for them. Other options would have been "Seattle Food Tour" and "Savor Seattle Food Tour".

Bites that we had on "Seattle Bite Food Tour":

  • Salmon Flat bread (Taste restaurant)
  • Nutella-Banana Crepe (Crepe de France)
  • New England Clam Chowder (Pike Place Chowder)
  • fresh produce samples and greek yoghurt (Corner Produce)
  • Chicken Masala and Mango Lassi (Saffron Spice)
  • Onion Bratwurst with Sauerkraut (Uli's Famous Sausage Company)
  • Smoked and fresh salmon (Pure Food Fish Market)
  • Balsamic Vinegar Tasting (Oil and Balsamic Vinegar Tasting Room)
  • Wine Tasting (Lost River Winery)

The tour was great. A good mix of some history to the Pike Place Market and a good variety of some delicious bites. And indeed, the portions were big enough so that we did not need a lunch afterwards. I have been to the Pike Place many times before, but to be honest, this time we ventured into areas I haven't been before and it was interesting to hear about the history as well. 

We met and started at the Art Museum and the restaurant "Taste" inside the museum. This seemed a little unusual but I have to say that I was looking forward to the Salmon Flatbread Bite and I was not disappointed. This is only offered Wednesday through Sunday though, luckily I went on a Wednesday. Other bites that I really enjoyed were the sweet nutella and banana crepes, the indian chicken masala with mango lassi, authentic German and very lean sausage with sauerkraut. Of course we also sampled the famous award winning New England clam chowder at the Pike Place Chowder which I already had the pleasure to experience. And in the end we were taken to an oil and balsamic vinegar tasting and of course, what better ending, a wine tasting. First, I did not know what to think of the oil and balsamic vinegar tasting place, but give it a try. They have a lot of different kinds of vinegars (e.g. blood orange balsamic vinegar) and the flavors are just amazing.

A great day with delicious food, interesting history and very nice people. And it actually did not rain either :)
