One of the most frequent questions we receive at Seattle Oasis Vacations as we are welcoming guests to our fantastic 1 and 2 bedroom vacation properties is where is the best place to eat? Seattle is a foodie paradise, with world class sushi, high end steak houses and eclectic ethnic restaurants all within steps of the front door of our Belltown properties.
WIth that being said, it is still true that almost nothing is as good as a burger done right, and in the January 2012 issue, Seattle Magazine dishes on the best burgers in the city. No surprise to us, Belltown is well represented with not one, but two, category winners!
Two Bells Bar and Grill: Two Bells won the best Dive Bar Burger with its Tavern Burger (and don’t be fooled, this really is a tavern, not a bar, so the ambiance may not be for everyone). Darik, owner of Seattle Oasis Vacations, agrees, and gives this place a big thumbs up. Burgers are cooked to order (which means you CAN get it done medium, if that is your choice) and served with thick bacon, onions, mayo, mustard, tomatoes, pickles and Tillamook cheddar on a sourdough baguette. It is a burger that has been around for YEARS, and with good reason. No fries here, but get the home-made baked beans as your side, free with your burger. Also, a great selection of beers. Located at 2313 Fourth Ave.
Local 360: Local 360 places an emphasis on local sourcing of food, with the majority of what they serve produced within a 360 mile radius of Seattle. This tasty version of a burger is on a classic bun and won the Best All American Burger category with a specially seasoned blend of locally produced ground beef that again is cooked to order, and can come with their awesome skin-on thick cut fries. Standard burger fixin’s here include mixed greens, bread and butter pickles (made here) and aioli. 2234 First
