Whenever we have friends visit from out of town, we inevitably take them to Pike Place Market.  It’s one of the quintessential Seattle stops for every visitor/tourist, but surprisingly, it’s one that never gets old.  Every time we go, I always remember how much I love the Market, and I always wonder to myself, “why don’t I come here more often?”  Yes, the produce is a bit overpriced, and it can be painfully crowded (especially if the weather is nice and/or it’s the weekend), but it’s still a pretty cool place to walk through since it’s almost always a little different every time I go.  I’ve even toyed with the idea of trying to visit every single eatery in and around the Market over the course of a year and blogging about it.  Maybe someday.  Might need to win the lottery first.

On this day, it was a bit gray and rainy (as usual), but seeing these gorgeously vibrant raspberries was a nice reminder that spring is coming…eventually.

We decided to take a little road trip to Portland over E’s spring break. Of course, while we were there we could not resist hitting up one of the numerous food truck pods.  I know that Korean/Asian-fusion taco trucks abound these days, but I hadn’t seen a ton of Korean burritos, mostly just tacos or kimchi quesadillas.  This burrito, from Koi Fusion was fabulous.  The proportions of meat to kimichi fried rice to veggies (I skipped the cheese) was almost dead on.  My only minor complaint was that I would have liked if the ingredients were more evenly distributed inside the burrito – most of my meat was at the top and by the time I got to the last few bites, all I had left was rice.  But I still ate the whole thing.  And thought about it for days afterwards.
