Well 2014 was interesting. Hopefully 2015 is even more awesome. We visited some newer spots and discovered gold! Hapa Ramen is a project that I’ve been following on it’s journey from street cart vendor, to weekly pop-up restaurant to its final brick and mortar existence. It’s been interesting watching them grow up. The food is delicious. They also like to experiment with Ramen, so if you want to try cheeseburger ramen, they’re what’s up. We also take a trip to a small Pacific Northwest micro brewery called Maritime Pacific and Hanabi has the report. Insane Dane is still fighting off the winter blues, but it’s much easier with his sausage and mushroom pasta recipe on the Dish + Drink blog.
