With everything from fine dining to pub grub, Seattle is a foodie destination. We’re known for our seafood, particularly salmon and Penn Cove mussels (not to mention the oversize, suggestively shaped geoduck, pronounced gooey-duck). Seattle is a coffee lover’s paradise, with many independent coffeehouses and local roasters. Washington apples are a point of pride, so if you’re at a farmers’ market, sample some of our local varieties, like the coveted Honeycrisp. Seattle excels in Thai, Indian, and Vietnamese cuisine—pho is a local favorite—and has some great Central and South American restaurants in the outer neighborhoods. The food-truck scene is alive and well in Seattle, offering everything from tortas to soul food to Korean sliders.
