    Bite of Seattle 2012

    The Bite of Seattle is the city’s most celebrated food event bringing together all the food diversity Seattle has to offer. I have been attending this annual event since I was 14 so lots of good times here.  The 2012 Bite of Seattle was definitely another great time… You can’t beat a summer Seattle day with food, sun, hanging out, and sights! 

  2. Two racks of Xia Long Bao (soup dumplings)


Wrapping platinum dumplings

Soup goodness

Noodles with meat sauce

Spicy Wonton

Rice cakes with prawns

Shao Mai (shrimp on top, a little soup and pork at the bottom)
Din Tai Fung
This place is the real deal Holyfield. I love Din Tai Fung and glad that they chose Seattle (Bellevue) as their 2nd US location. My moms was kind enough to take the fam out to Din Tai Fun for my bday. Since my mom only eats asian food, she makes the decisions where to roll.
Words cannot express how much I love DTF……. xiao long bao (soup dumplings) and spicy wontons that is! I usually order two different kinds of soup dumplings, the pork and then the chicken & truffle. Also it’s a must to get two orders of spicy wontons as they could be Seattle’s best wontons. Balance the meal with some chinese broccoli and green beans. Instead of rice, it’s rice cakes with prawns. And you can’t have asian food without noodles, so you have to go with the spicy noodles and the noodles with meat sauce. 
If there’s room, the shave ice desert with fruit and red bean hits. DTF is loaded with goodness, flavors, freshness, and quality. The downside are the lines and the $$$ status, definitely not an everyday thing. DTF holds it down and I consider it a treat each time I visit. To note they have beer on asian beer on draft.
