Seattle Poke Contest

Back for the second year in a row at the Stonehouse Cafe but not the same organizers. The cafe has expanded in the last year so all the poke stations were out on the lawn which made it much easier to move around. The cooked food was inside and the desserts over at the bakery. Presented in order of my favorite to least favorite. I put Chan first since it was so fun to eat and I love foie gras. Poke Wai was a close second and was favorite of others in the group. K’s first choice was the pineapple bar.

    THANK YOU! I was so boggled by the onslaught of amazing fish that I didn’t get photos of each restaurant name and ingredients to post to my own (very slipshod) FB Food group! This was an awesome event! Hope they do it again next year. I’ll be bringing tupperware 🙂
