Oh, hello! Welcome back. Thanks for reading this little blog of mine. 🙂
Today has been absolutely glorious in Seattle and it has me upbeat and free-spirited… so much so that I actually postponed my training run to tomorrow. That means 5-miles tomorrow and then the big 2-0 on Saturday. Yikes! At least that little pup of ours got a nice brisk walk around Eastlake today. She loved it!
Anyway, the point of today’s blog post is to introduce a new series that I’ll call “Delicious in Seattle,” a series dedicated to spotlighting local eats — restaurants, food trucks, anything goes.
I’d like to dedicate this first post in the series to a wonderful South Lake Union joint called Serious Biscuit. Not only is it located in the best and fastest-growing neighborhood in Seattle, it’s literally steps (kitty corner) from my office building. I’m one lucky girl.
See the little message I wrote on the too? True.
Joe and I tend to go to Serious Biscuit at least once a week for brunch or lunch. Their assortment of biscuits will meet any mood! Truffle frittata? Yes. Fried chicken and gravy? They have that. Fried catfish biscuit? Mm hmm.
We’ve tried several of the biscuits but tend to gravitate back to some of our favorites. For Joe, this means the fennel sausage, egg, pepper relish, fontina biscuit. Man, he absolutely loves that. Favorite.
One of my favorites is the homemade peanut butter, ripe banana, honey biscuit. Simply divine. 🙂 The crunchy peanut butter slathered on the freshly toasted biscuit topped with banana slices and drizzled with honey? It’s delish! Not a traditional lunchtime food, but amazing nonetheless.
We typically each order our own biscuit and will share a side of biscuit with jam. Lately the jam has been an amazing rhubarb-based one. I need to try making my own, stat.
The biscuits above were what we had about a week ago during lunch. We were already so full, but couldn’t turn down the peanut butter crispy/flat cookies that just weren’t suitable for making those whoopie pie-type pastries in the glass case. Thanks to the chef that offered these to our table and suggested we slather some of the PB and honey on top.
Hopefully the pictures above showcase the deliciousness that is Serious Biscuit.
Now, what are you waiting for? Go try them now! Just make sure to leave some biscuits for us. 🙂
