Seattle: Piroshky Piroshky

You can't miss Piroshky Piroshky when walking through Pike Place:

Even if you don't see the sign, you find the long line that winds around the corner.  It moves quickly, though.  So no worries.  In no time, you'll be peeking into the interior of the bakery:

Pictures of the different baked goods line the windows, so you can kind of get an idea of what you want before you get to the counter.  Once you're there, don't expect time to figure things out.  Just point and point and move on to pay.  Ain't nobody got time to wait for you to make up your mind.

We got the potato and cheese:

The smoked salmon pate:

And the beef and onion:

Word of advice: eat them while warm.  We waited until we got to the Olympic Sculpture Park to eat ours and by then they were cold.  They still tasted good, but the bread wasn't as soft or the cheese as...melty as they could have been.

Piroshky Piroshky is definitely worth a try, but I probably wouldn't wait in line for it on a regular basis.  Though if I was ever in Seattle again, I would go back once more so that I could try something from their sweets.
