Bellevue Food News Roundup

The Downtown Bellevue Network blog reports that Barrio has added a Late Night Happy Hour option available Monday through Thursday from 10 -11pm and Friday & Saturday from 11pm – 1am. The menu includes their signature Margarita, Sangria, Wine and Mexican Beers for libations and an enticing array of appetizers including their solid made-to-order Guacamole , $3 Tacos and even a couple of dessert options including their delicious take on Churros y Chocolate that would be perfect to soak up some of the night's excess. They also announced a new Sunday ½ Price Wine promotion on Sundays; where you can purchase any bottle for half price with $25 in food purchases.While the Huskies and the Seahawks have not given us much to cheer about this season, the Apple Cup always seems to be an exciting game of interstate rivals. Although the game will be televised on FSN it is always fun to watch it in a crowded sports bar with beer in one hand and chicken wing in the other. The Bellevue Local Table blog highlights the best spots to watch the game in Bellevue. The only place they seemed to have missed is the beloved Goose Pub, the diviest bar in town just across 405.

How do you feel about bikini baristas? While they have typically been on the outskirts of town in Shoreline, Everett, Mill Creek, Bothell the latest drive-thru featuring scantily clad servers called Knotty Bodies opened recently at the intersection of Northeast Eighth Street and 164th Avenue Northeast in the Crossroads/ Lake Hill area of suburban Bellevue. The Seattle PI reports that the Bellevue City Council has echoed the sentiment of angry residents and has shut down the drive-through at the espresso stand, although walk-ups are still allowed. What do you think? Do you think its okay for people to get a little skin while they wait for their caramel soy machiatto?

And on a less controversial note, the Seattle Magazine blog shares what looks to be a delicious recipe for Monsoon East's Pork Belly. This would be great for one of our chilly, rainy days while you are home doing chores around the house or perhaps watching some football and have the time for a long 2 hour braise.
