Ballard Date Night

Since BK was leaving for a couple weeks I planned a little date night on Tuesday before he left.  I decided it was finally time to check out a newer spots in Ballard we had yet to try, Bitterroot and Hot Cakes.

First up was Bitterroot BBQ.  This isn’t your average BBQ joint – its small, clean, modern.  The BBQ is Northwest whatever that means, all was yummy.  We started out with a couple Boulevard Wheat Ales and an order of Jalapeno hush puppies.  The hush puppies were big & round, not very peppery.  on the table were four sauce choices – my faves were the sweet and the tangy mustard ones.


For dinner we shared an order of Mac & Cheese with pulled pork and carmelized onions; and a chicken sandwich.  the Mac & Cheese is a great deal – $10 for a huge serving.  The sandwich was served on a salty pretzel roll, mmm.




For dessert we then headed up a couple blocks to Hot Cakes where we shared a Dar Decadence molten cake and a Dark & Storm Boozy Shake.  The cake was super dark chocolate but the salted caramel got lost on the bottom of the plate.  the boozy shake was good, but a little pricey.



Fun night out, both spots I would return to.  And on a side note, I spent Wednesday night (first night of bachelorette-hood) catching up with Emily at Lloyd Martin on QA – definitely a cute joint as well.
