Mediterranean Express on Capitol Hill
How do I spell scrumptious? “B-A-K-L-A-V-A”. Not just any baklava though. Mediterranean Express’ baklavas. I’ve had many tasty baklavas in my lifetime, but their baklavas are to die for. Somehow, someway, Mediterranean Express managed to perfect the baklava. A superb balance of sweet, salty, and light buttery goodness, filled with a thick layer of cashews and topped off with pistachios overflowing from its flaky filo pastry shell. They will truly delight and satisfy your taste buds.

Top Pot Doughnuts in Downtown Seattle
After writing up an article about Daily Dozen Doughnut, a few friends asked why I haven’t mentioned Top Pot yet. According to them, I didn’t review the donuts that put Seattle on the map. Well, I’ve had Top Pot on many occasions and while I agree that they do indeed make delicious donuts, I didn’t review them first because I felt that they were already receiving a lot of attention, and I wanted my first donut review to be about a lessor known place that deserved more recognition.

Potbelly Sandwich Shop
The Potbelly Sandwich Shop opens its first Washington restaurant in Downtown Seattle at 4th and Pike. Read about Seattle Rex’s visit and his thoughts on Potbelly on his blog: http://www.seattlerex.com/potbelly-sandwich-shop/
I checked out Rex’s Deli for lunch, and this was only due to its name. One of the contributers here is named Rex and I figured it would be fun to check out his namesake deli. I actually did go with some expectation because a friend mentioned that their sandwiches were really “yummy”.

The Crumpet Shop Entrance
After a 5 month hiatus, The Crumpet Shop re-opened yesterday so I decided to drop by this morning. The aroma of freshly toasted crumpets were in the air. It was business as usual and it looked as though they had never closed. The atmosphere was very casual and cozy, although it can get really hectic during breakfast and lunch, especially over the weekend. There is a wall painted with a scene straight out of Alice in Wonderland (tea party scene), which is quite fitting for a crumpet and teahouse.

It was time for lunch and I couldn’t decide what I wanted to eat, so I walked through Pike Place Market and down Pike Place. I spotted Mr. D’s food truck in front of their restaurant being renovated, and realized that it’s been a while since I’ve eaten Greek food.

When I visited Pike Place Market over the weekend, I was craving something sweet and remembered Daily Dozen’s donuts, but when I arrived, the long line quickly reminded me that it was Saturday. Why oh why of all days did I have to have such a strong craving for donuts? Saturdays are the busiest and the most jam packed days at the market. Well, I did end up satisfying my sweet craving with cheesecakes, and boy was I glad I did. The long line was actually a blessing in disguise this time.

The Confectional Storefront
The Confectional, a creative name for creative treats.
Walking through the entrance of The Confectional, I didn’t have any expectations while looking at their mini-sized cheesecakes through the glass display. They were pretty to look at but what did they taste like? This weekend, I found out.
