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…

Original First Starbucks – Seattle
Whether you’re a coffee person or not, you must visit the very first Starbucks if you visit Seattle. It still has the old original logo, and the merchandise they sell also have the original logo. This is the only location you can get them! I bought a mug with saucer for my souvenir. No matter how many times I go there, it’s always packed with a really long line up. I’ve only lined up once to buy the mug, so can’t really comment on their drinks. (all the other times, we looked at their merchandise, or took photos in front as I went there with different people every time) But since reading some reviews that their drinks are better than other locations, next time, I will have to try it.
Cafe Bengodi in Seattle
A very small Italian place right on the corner with about 10 tables. Though some parts were falling apart, it was cozy and colourful, with the place was run by one guy upfront. It was around 2pm and the streets outside was really quiet as everyone was watching the Sea Hawks Super Bowl game. We wanted to eat and leave Seattle before the game ended and everyone came out onto the streets to create chaos and traffic jams.
I ordered the Pastaria Tonno $12 (Italian for tuna). It came with tuna, tomatoes, capers, oregano, olive oil and garlic. Overall, it was on the sour taste, but for me, that was good cuz I liked things with lemon or vinegar. The tuna seemed to be just out of a can. The portion was only slightly a bit too much, but overall quite satisfied with the dish.

Sheepie told me that the toilet wasn’t working and had some weird setup with how it was built. I didn’t go and hoped I would run into a different bathroom elsewhere.
