Elliott Bay Cafe – Pt2

Yet again Elliott Bay Cafe is on the top of my favorite list.  I’ve been meaning to post another great sandwich that I talked about previously.  Located in Pioneer Square right below the Elliott Bay Bookstore, the main entrance is on 1st Ave S. and S. Main Street.  It’s a great location because you can get great tasting food and head upstairs to the bookstore afterwards.  I’ve been addicted to the Moroccan Steak sandwich(9.75)…grilled on a pita bread it has chunks of seared skirt steak, minted yogurt, feta cheese, and chermoula.  Chermoula or Charmoula is a marinade typically used in countries in the Northern African region (Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, etc.)  It’s usually a typical mix of lemon juice, herbs, oil, garlic, and salt.  The steak was tangy and goes well with the feta and minted yogurt.  It comes with a side of either Quinoa or brown rice.  The sides are healthy and tasted great.  Unfortunately, you can’t pick the sides….they come on random days.  Both are really good so I took two pics below with brown rice and Quinoa.  Quinoa is complete in protein and it has a fluffy, slightly crunchy and nutty flavor.  It has “complete protein” meaning it includes all nine essential amino acids.  The brown rice is a mix of of carrots, apples, grapes, walnuts, lemon juice, and rice vinegar.  Very tasty!

I definitely recommend this place for great sandwiches, healthy side dishes and a bonus of having a bookstore right upstairs that opens till 8pm Mon-Sat.  I like to read so it’s a great addition!
