Smoked Bacon and Pastrami Sandwiches at Hitchcock Deli on Bainbridge Island

After our tour of the Japanese American Exclusion Memorial, we drove back to downtown Bainbridge Island (near Seattle) for lunch, and landed at Hitchcock Deli where in-house smoked bacon and pastrami were waiting to be made into big sandwiches. Read my full review with more pictures of Hitchcock Deli on Bainbridge Island after the break.

Mora Iced Creamery on Bainbridge Island

After our lunch at Hitchcock Deli, we wandered along the small downtown of Bainbridge Island (near Seattle) and landed at Mora Iced Creamery. The ice cream was delicious and hit the spot after our lunch. Mora makes their own ice cream. We tried the Swiss chocolate and the Mexican chocolate.

"Down in the front!"
TIP: Bainbridge Island makes a wonderful day trip from Seattle. You can take the ferry (by walking or driving your car onto the ferry), and it's only a 30 minute ride. There are many shops, restaurants, and museums within easy walking distance of the ferry terminal, and if you bring your car you can take a scenic drive of the island's gardens and nurseries. Here's more information on Bainbridge Island --

I didn't expect to find a California burrito in Washington, but that's exactly what I found (and a lot more) at El Balcon. Located in Bremerton, Washington (near Seattle and Tacoma), El Balcon serves a large menu of Salvadorian and Mexican dishes. Read my review of El Balcon Salvadorian and Mexican restaurant after the break.

After a week in Seattle, we still hadn't made it for donuts. (Maybe we were filled-up on donuts after our Portland donut tour.) So we walked from our downtown hotel to the nearest Top Pot Doughnuts. Read my review with more pictures of Top Pot Doughnuts in Seattle's Belltown after the break.

Drive Into Burgers at Dick's Drive-In

Don't forget to bring your car to Dick's Drive-In -- you'll need it to eat on! Grab your burgers and shakes (and ice cream cones) at the counter, then spread your meal out on your hood, and dig in. Of course, Seattle has the most rainy days in the nation, so in case of rain you can eat in your car. Read my full review of Dick's Drive-In in Seattle after the break.

Crab Boil at The Crab Pot

It was my family's last night in Seattle, and we wanted to end our wonderful week in the Emerald City with a memorable dinner. So what if our pick was a little on the touristy side? Sometimes the tourist places are the most fun. Read my review of the crab boil at The Crab Pot in Seattle after the break.
