The sounds of gently lapping waves and the fresh scents of sea breeze follow visitors as they head up the wooden steps that lead to Thailanding On Alki. Within the beachside restaurant, diners enjoy robustly flavored, yet balanced dishes, from garlicky Thai-style chicken wings served with sweet-and-sour sauce to sir-fried glass noodles tangled up with crisp veggies. Patrons may also snag seats on the balcony overlooking Alki beach, sipping from a Singha beer or a young coconut while watching seagulls practice their aerial tricks. Seafood dishes help diners to further appreciate the water’s depths, and a rainbow of curries enchants palates with accents of coconut milk, roasted duck, or pumpkin.

The Three Faces of The Swinery

Street Food in a Courtyard

A BLT where the “B” stands for (pork) belly. A third-pound Painted Hills ground-beef burger on a brioche bun from Macrina Bakery. Carolina-style pulled pork. Pair any of these with the house Danger fries—tallow fries doused in bacon and cheese—and you’re eating in The Swinery’s courtyard, which feeds the masses during weekday lunch and weekend brunch. Here, the focus is on flavor, and the chefs maximize this by incorporating bacon and bacon fat in any number of ways. Their renowned bacon dog even attracted the carnivores of United States of Bacon.

Butcher Shop

Inside The Swinery proper, cases brim with the fruits of old-school butchery practices. Meats that have been properly aged, hung, and prepared jostle with housemade sausages and world-renowned cheeses. The result: smoked tasso ham alongside English bacon and loukanika sausages flanking barbecue brisket, all of which combine to solidify the shop’s title, “The Temple of Porcine Love.”

Sustainable Practices

Apart from using old-school butchery practices and maximizing the use of bacon fat, The Swinery ensures top flavor by following sustainable practices. Butchers ship in whole animals from small farms within 300 miles of their shop and use every piece they can. And whenever possible, they select animals and products raised and made with organic practices.

This inconspicuous neighborhood bistro’s rotating list of delights is posted both on its blackboards and clipboard menus, but despite its low-key appearance, Blackboard Bistro features surprisingly-complex preparations of hearty European fare. Chef Jacob Wiegner’s overseas experience and background preparing Spanish-style cuisine results in an effortless-seeming and unexpected fusion of flavors and textures built from Northwest ingredients. On any given night, diners can sit at the bar counter or striped banquettes and tuck in to dishes ranging from house-made gnocchi or lamb sliders, to more complex fare involving foie gras, pork belly, Pacific seafood or wild game – all of it at pub prices. Wine, cocktails and spirits hew toward the regional, and Sunday brunch is a prix-fixe affair offering new twists on morning comfort food – breakfast pizza with anchovies, egg and arugula, or a house-made doughnut served with pork loin, gravy and poached egg – alongside classics.
