Weekend Review

This weekend was filled with lots of sporting events, girl time and food. We went to a Seattle Thunderbirds hockey game in Kent Friday night with some friends. It was fun to go to a game since we haven’t been to a sporting event since the Seahawks game for my birthday. Saturday I spent the day wedding dress shopping with one of my friends and we found beautiful ones at Dress Theory in Green Lake. We had time before our next appointment so we stopped in at Revel in Fremont. I’ve never been before, but I’ve heard great things. They describe themselves as “Urban-style Korean food”, but I found it to be a great mix of Northwest and Asian food. We shared an amazing pork belly monkey bread and I ordered the short rib rice bowl. One of my friends ordered a rice porridge bowl and it was delicious. I don’t think I could choose between the two next time! Saturday night I went out in Capitol Hill to celebrate my friend’s birthday, and I woke up Sunday morning realizing I was no longer 22. Sunday consisted of laying around, watching the Super Bowl and commercials, and eating homemade meatballs. It was a great weekend to start off February!

Turkish Breakfast in Fremont

There’s a new Turkish cafe that opened in Fremont a couple weeks ago – Cafe Turko. Whenever we would pass by the building with signs stating “Cafe Turko Opening Soon”, Dan would get really excited. I’ve never had Turkish food, but Dan did when he was living in Germany and loves it. We stopped by on a Thursday night to get a little after dinner pastry, but they had just closed up. The owner was kind enough to unlock the door and we decided to get lunch for the next day. We got hummus, stuffed peppers and dolmas, it was amazing. On Saturday we went there for breakfast and my first cup of Turkish coffee.

Turkish Coffee

The coffee was thicker than I expected and took a few sips to get used to. Being that there are only a few sips in the cup, I think it’s going to take a few Turkish breakfasts to get my taste buds used to it! We ordered a plethora of food, our favorite being a spinach and cheese pastry. Everything was amazing though and I can’t wait to go back again!
