100 Things to Try Before You Die: Seattle Edition

Update: The Seattle 100 is now an application on Facebook. Check it out, keep track of your progress, and share with your friends!

A while back, a friend posted a link to 100 things to try before you die in San Francisco. My mouth watered as I read over the list, but alas, it was all quite superficial since I didn’t have any familiarity with these restaurants.

I shared the article on Yelp Talk, and much to my surprise, the Seattle Yelp community started filling in a similar list for Seattle! Little did I realize at the time, however, that a similar list had been formed a few months prior. I’ve merged the two together, nixed duplicates, and added a few of my favorites to give a list similar to what they offered for San Francisco. Enticing photos included!

Now, on to the list, in no particular order…

  1. Sunset Supper at Pike Place Market (every year on August 14!)
  2. Pumpkin Cream Puff at Hiroki
  3. Caviar Tasting at Seattle Caviar Company
  4. A Scone with Jam at The Crumpet Shop
  5. Midnight Cuban Sandwich at Paseo
