We were walking around Seattle and happen to come across this chocolate shop. How could Sheepie, the chocoholic resist? So he bought a bunch. Each piece was quite large, making it not suitable for a one biter unless you want to look like you’ve just shoved a jawbreaker in. I wasn’t too fond of the taste of their chocolate, and gave the rest to Sheepie. But Sheepie himself couldn’t eat them. He didn’t like them at all. Not sure what he did with them…

Jalapenos Mexican Grill and Cantina in Fairheaven, US
We were drawn to the colourful neon lights and the interesting interior. We were greeted by friendly staff and sat at a table on the ground floor. As we suspected from the window, the interior had a nice atmosphere and gave a Mexican flair. The upstairs seemed like it was more of a bar scene.
We were surprised to have complimentary tortilla chips and salsa sauce. Mmm! The cilantro in the sauce is yummy! It was decent portion for the 3 of us.
It was hard to understand our server with a strong accent, but we finally decided to get the Tower Sampler $16.95 USD which serves 2-4 adults. It came on a 3 tier server, topped with a combination platter of cheese and chicken quesadillas, chicken tacquitos, mini burritos (bean and cheese and jalapeno poppers. There are tomatoes, sour cream guacamole (yum!), bean dip and ranchero salsa for dipping.
Since we were driving around and eating at odd times, the portion was perfect for us. Everything tasted really good, though perhaps not the weight-friendliest with cheese, deep fried, beans and meat! We were all happy with the place, and when we were looking around the town more after our meal, we talked to a person who recommend that this restaurant was better than the other Mexican place which was just down the road. So I’m glad we did.
Panda Express at Bellis Fair
A food joint that exists primary because of its existence in the Bellis Fair food court. The food out was not fresh and didn’t really look appetizing. I had a small 1 item to go with Chow Mein (about $3 USD). It has whole grain noodles with shredded onions, celery, cabbage and bean sprouts.
It’s fast food – cheap food. Just to satisfy my empty snack department in my stomach – not my tasting buds.
Most of the staff were friendly or ok. They seem a bit disorganized with food orders and individual tasks.
