A Gastro Adventure

This weekend my parents took a trip down to Seattle and we took the opportunity to try some restaurants we had been talking about for a while. We started our night off at Mistral Kitchen where we took advantage of their happy hour (daily from 5-6:30pm). Highlights include the margherita pizza and $1 oysters.

After happy hour we headed to Spur Gastropub, this was an experience like none I have had (to say the least). Mostly I feel that my taste buds were confused but I have always been intrigued by things with foam and sous vide items. I can’t say that I will go back but I am very happy to have had the experience.

This dessert somehow involved chocolate, beet sorbet and various other beet accompaniments.
