Malay Satay Hut has a huge menu that can dazzle newcomers. It was like an adventure to browse through every item and choose what I wanted during my first visit. The food is ok, not very delicous but not too bad, definitely not up to an authentic Malay standard, which is to be expected in America. The lunch special is cheap, so are the noodles and rice. Service is also quick.
This store has a tea house and a separate gift shop. The tea house serves traditional English tea and food. The scone is the best I've ever tasted in this state and the savory snacks are equally delicious. Same for the cranberry half-frozen salad/dessert. I ordered a set lunch at $19 and found it to be of good value, with tea, scone, cake, savory appetizer, fruit, salad and soup.
The food is so good that it really makes me wonder why they choose to open inside a mall. The ambience, plus the overhead fluorescent lights really kills it.
Kung Ho is in the Loehman complex, close to QFC and others. I really like their tasty small appetizers, which can be enough for a meal if you order a couple. For example, the drunken chicken, salty duck, jellyfish, etc are good (in North American standard). They also have some Taiwanese specialties not found elsewhere. The staff is efficient and the owner quite friendly.
Burgermaster serves really delicious burgers. The sauce is really good. I once order a chicken sandwich and I find it equally satisfying. In my opinion, their burgers are much better than pricier joints like Red Robin and others.
The drivein is a fun nostalgic thing for some people, but I never enjoy eating in the car anyway. So I often end up doing a small picnic nearby, or eat the burgers in my home.
The fries are really nothing special to write about though.
Small store with a good selection of English tea, candies, biscuits, jams and other canned food and cooking aids. They also carry a nice collection of teapots and teacups. You can also buy pies, cakes and pastries made on site. The cold pork pie, curry chicken pie and fruit cake are very delicious.
Bill Austin is a very friendly, nice and straight-to-the-point guy who offers a reasonable price for irrigation system setup and service. However, it is quite hard to reach him by phone, although he starts using email this year which should improve the situation.
Bill doesn't communicate enough with customers and explain everything. He did what he thought was right and efficient without enough input from customers.
This musuem has a nice display of local train operation history, plus a couple of vintage diesels and other train cars, including a snowplow, a mobile army hospital car, some logging cars and others. The museum also runs a fun ride (using vintage diesels and carriages, of course) to North Bend or Snoqualmie Falls. Gift shop is a delight to a train fan's heart. I am also able to find coupons from local visitor centers or discount card, that offer buy one get one free deal on train ride.
Parents should also watch out for the annual Thomas train ride hosted by this museum.
This Tacoma musuem has a signature looking building (looks like a hat) that hosts a glass workshop. The galleries are great. But I think the real gem lies in the (free) outdoor plazas with different sculptures and the "Chihuly Bridge of Glass" linking the museum to Union Station across the highway. Walking in the Chihuly "Seaform Pavilion" on the bridge gives you a feeling that you are really underwater! The gift shop also has a very nice selection of glass decorations and art books.
Dr Crinzi very patient and knows how to make patients feel calm before an oral surgery. He has very good skill in his trade and the surgery doesn't take long. He explained clearly what he was going to dobefore my surgery and the caring procedures after it. After I went home, he called me several times to follow up and make sure the caring procedures were followed. His staff is also very nice too. In Dr Crinzi's hands my fear for oral surgery is greatly reduced despite not completely gone.
This is the vision product branch of the Group Health hospital. The frames and glasses have better price than the other optical shops. However, you won't be able to find name brands or quality frames in this center. They only take cash or the group health insurance plan. So if you have another insurance plan they might not work with you.
