Beecher's Handmade Cheese, Seattle
I didn't intend to come here (1600 Pike Place, 956-1964). I actually came down to Pike Place Market in hopes of getting some fresh shellfish for breakfast. But to my dismay, most of the shops weren't serving food until 11 AM.
Fortunately, I stumbled across these guys, who were making cheese in the window. And they had a cafe that was selling grilled cheese sandwiches, including this one that featured dungeness crab. Hey - if I couldn't get the original beast, then at least I could get it in sandwich form, right?
It pretty much tasted like it looked. The mild cheese went well with the delicate crab meat and was all hot and toasty in that bread. But in retrospect, I should have also grabbed some of that mac & cheese that they seemed so proud of. Maybe next time.
