Friday Night in Ballard
Last Friday we decided to go to the Walrus and the Carpenter. I have heard and read about this place for few years now. It was time to go. We got there around 8 pm and were put on a wait list with an estimated time of 2.5 hours!!! OK! We have 2.5 hours to spare - what shall we do? We walked along the Ballard Ave NW to Hot Cakes - why not start a night out with a dessert? The picture above is their Dark Decadence. Next is the wine bar Portalis. We have some wine. We are hungry and head down to the Walrus and the Carpenter.
We get seated at the bar and order fresh oysters, fried oysters, sardines, halibut crudo and artichoke salad. Oysters and sardines were very good. As for halibut and salad - too much acid for my taste. Fun place though.
