Seattle Residential: I Do That: Reading and Eating Don't Mix

Reading and Eating Don't Mix

I was reading the Seattle Times (in newsprint format) this morning while eating my breakfast. And since this is Wednesday I anticipated the "FOOD" section would have something interesting.

Keep in mind, this is the age when fast food emporiums are taken to task for the high fat content of the meals they serve and people are actually suing such establishments for making them fat. 

An egg    Toast


Stick with me..who doesn't like French Toast? And why not throw a fried egg on the plate with it. A good winter "Let's go skiing today," kind of treat. Well here is a treat that I'm sure will send a few of you running for the bathroom. 

Tete de cochon as described:  Between the egg and French toast are tongue, jowl, cheeks and brain, poached in pork fat, breaded and deep fried.

Access the article to see the picture in the Times and read the review of Local 360.

Local 360 makes an effort to acquire all it serves from within a 360 mile radius of Seattle. I don't know if they're posting a calorie count or fat content statistics, but I'm guessing that compared to Subway and McDonalds their market share is way down. If you go to Local 360, 2234 First Ave, Seattle, WA, let me know how you like it. For now, I'll stick with home cookin'.

Yuk!  Sounds like they're trying to make a name for themselves based on shock value -- rather than what consumers would really want.  It certainly got my attention!

Might be good for a serious hangover? I'm not much of a breakfast eater these days and when I do, I like to keep it light... The egg and toast would do me fine.

I don't care what you say.  I'm NOT eatin' THAT!

Good morning, I like the concept of trying to stay with goods from within a 360 mile radius, but with today's offering of jowl, cheeks and brains I'll stick to my Special "K" breakfast.

Melanie - They've made a name with me,,,

René - The article makes it sound like a happy hour treat. I suspect those with an owlish temperament might find it palatable.

Mike - A second that.

Adrian - A light breakfast serves me well.

GLenn, when I wake up in the morning I grab my iPad.  I go to the weather then I'm off to the local sections of our for major local news outlets and catch up what's happening in our area.  I enjoy a 50/50 breakfast of protein and fruit. I've found the newspapers are just advertising supplements...

Glenn.......that article was disgusting.....chicken wings that are pink inside....if that doesn't kill you, nothing will.

Bliz - Jumping on it just may ruin a good pair of shoes.

Paul - I have a question for you. We're trying to justify buying a tablet of some kind verses subscribing to the Times. to have the paper delivered it costs $5.60 per week or about $22.40 per month. For your tablet what do you pay for Internet services/ Times subscription (not that you need it) or what ever to use your Ipad?

Barbara - Chicken? I guess I'm guilty (thankfully) of not finsihing the article.

Wow.  I'm feeling a little tightness in my chest just looking at that picture.   I think I need to take an aspirin, just in case.

Posted by Mitch Gover ( almost 10 years ago

Mitch - Maybe a full sized aspirin too. Not just a baby one.

That's just downright disgusting!!!!!  Sounds a bit Scottish!!!!!

Tish - Because you are bound by Fair Housing laws, I question you bringing the Scottish eating habits into this venue.

David - Maybe it's divided 8 ways.

Posted by Glenn Roberts (Retired) almost 10 years ago

Yuck.  This is absolutely disgusting.  What on earth are they thinking.

Jane - I love sushi and that can be a little weird in the reading of it, but poached in pork fat and then breaded and deep fried? EEEW.
