Yoroshiko of Seattle

So far "Yoroshiko" is the best "Omakase" experience in Seattle. Our last visit in November 2016. A place very cool in the evening. Despite it's mostly packed every time they are very fast in food making and service. Chef/owners are truly from Japan and the experience makes the difference. 

Yoroshiku illuminates an often overlooked side of Japanese cuisine, showing Seattle that there is much more than teriyaki and sushi. Offering a modern take on the traditional izakaya, combined with time-honored ramen from the Hokkaido region, Yoroshiku aims to provide a memorable dining experience for all.

The Omakase experience include also their famous Ramen but please let the chef Keisuke Kobayashi do his job! We mean do not ask...but let him serve you with his extraordinary creation in a sequence of personal choices from the opened kitchen. That's what Omakase is all about.

Prices are great compared to te quality of the food. Young personnel and quick good service with nice selection of beers and sake. It's really fun to watch these guys run up and down in front of you at the kitchen bar.

Born and raised in Sapporo, co-owner Keisuke Kobayashi first experienced Seattle as a student in 2006. After falling in love with the Emerald City, his heart guided him back to Japan and into the restaurant industry. During the next four years, Keisuke learned his most valuable lesson as a chef. In 2012, Keisuke decided to open a traditional Japanese restaurant in Seattle. After recruiting childhood friend Koichi Homma, who brings with him decades of culinary experience — Yoroshiku was born.

Three Bears Lodge in Ashford Washington State

The “Three Bears Lodge” is located in Ashford, WA and it’s right close to the Mount Rainier National Park. This is the perfect accommodation for a group of friends or family. We have experienced the "Lazy Bears Cabin" cabin next to the stream. We had some heavy rain so we couldn't use our nice outside facilities like bath tube or fire pit close to the water.

It wasn't a big deal cause inside the cabin we found a warm atmosphere thanks to the stone fireplace and a lot of other amenities, including a nice game room and a cool dvd movie library.

The full kitchen is very well kept and organized. The owners left us all the instructions in order to use it properly. So you can cook your own meals or you might go to eat at "Rainier Valley Inn Restaurant" which is quite close. They prepare a pretty good breakfast that you'll need before your hiking day on the mountains trails.

Mt. Rainier National Park has magnificent scenic locations and trails. It's beautiful either in the snow, rain or shine. Hikers paradise with a lot of trails for all tastes.

In the same day we did two trails, one in the snow and the other one in the rain under the forest, Both were amazing experiences.

In the evening we returned at our wonderful cabin to relax and rest in super comfortable beds, ready to go the next day to experience another adventure in the woods.

The lodge has several other cabins in different styles located along the stream or right close.

For the families, in certain periods of the year you can also find out for a magical train ride. This area is the home of the "Polar Express Train Experience" and you'll have a lot of fun with your kids.

If you have a week-end or a full week vacation with your family or friends, the "Three Bears Lodge" is the place to go. Only recommendation is to book quite in advance cause it is very requested.
