Seattle Trip 2008 Post 2

Okay yesterday we hit up the fair again, this time to see Weird Al. It was awesome, of course. It was raining during the entire concert (the concert was in an outdoor grandstand), and it completely didn’t matter.
I was surprised at one part, usually the Star Wars songs come at the end, I thought. They make up a great encore. But not this time, they were in the middle. At the end was Albuquerque. All like 11 minutes of it, with two minutes extra in the middle there where Al came up with new donut flavors. You have to know the song to understand…
Anyway, that was yesterday. Today we went to dinner at our favorite restaurant that we found last year. Nishino. We had the Exclusive Omakase. Oh. My. Gosh. A flavor explosion. For 75$ (you can get the normal omakase for 60$, but I mean come on, this was exclusive) they put together an 8 course meal for you consisting of the chef’s choice from all over the menu. It was fantastic.
Mikel and I’s favorite was the Miso marinated black broiled cod. It was like butter. So tender, so juicy, so wonderful. Honorable mention goes to the succulent salmon in the sashimi salad and the ice cream thing that I can’t describe.
Tomorrow the food adventure continues. A couple days ago we hit up Kidd Valley for a good burger, and tomorrow we’ll compare that to Red Mill. Yummy burgers for the win.
