Ah, Little Uncle. You know I live so close to this place and never had the chance of going here?
Why you may ask? Well, this location is only open on weekdays until 3 p.m. Fortunately, I had some vacation time left over and decided to take the day off to walk over.
This little underground Filipino food mart has gone beyond an addiction. I told Leila (the chef/owner) that I may need an intervention. I have walked by this place for a couple of year and sadly never stopped by to give it a try. I asked myself after finally going, “AM I INSANE?” How did I walked on pass this wonderful mart in the first place? Okay, so I will go on the record and say that yes, it was years of insanity on my part.

Hands down, this is my favorite food truck in Seattle! I have no idea what took me so long to blog and rave all over the place about this truck.
Thanks to my girl Ishea of Six Twenty Seven, she informed me that Restaurant Zoe was having their first ever Pop-up Brunch. I’ve never been to this restaurant and I’ve always wanted to ever since I lived in Belltown – where they were located originally before moving up to Capitol Hill. Looking at the menu before going, I noticed this wasn’t your average brunch. Put on by Chef/restaurateur Scott Staples, there was a scramble with duck confit, a funnel cake with pork belly, baked eggs with more duck, and even green eggs and ham. Reading this menu, I was definitely sold and patiently waited for Sunday to roll around…
Behold what I call the mecca of this whole weekend festival – Night Market! This is the event that I look forward to the most. An outdoor event where chefs from all over come to showcase a delightful tasting of global street food.
