I've been on a Vietnamese food rampage lately, ever since a fellow hiker introduced me to spicy bean curd braised with lemon grass at a restaurant on 12th & Jackson after our Snow and Gem Lakes hike.  up.gif

This is a Best post-hike grub thread,.... but for pre- hike grub.....I'm can't remember what the place is called , but on highway 410 in Greenwater there is a small place across from Wapiti Woolies that has awesome breakfast that can start a hike out right.

If you have truly spent a full day in the mountains, much of the good places are closed, so the last resort has to be T-bell, sorry, but its so good after eating power bars and Gu all day.

The only must stop place for us after a long day hiking up north is the El Gitano on Riverside in Mount Vernon. I cant speak for the other locations, but the M.V. one is top notch up.gif

I've been hitting a great German place. They're a chain with outlets all over the place. The name's Fred Meyer. Their deli sections have a microwave where I can zap just about anything from fresh vegetables to low fat frozen dinners. The first time I tried this route, I was taking cheapness and minimalism to an extreme.

The funny thing was, when I arrived home without a gut full of unhealthy grub, I noticed that it felt pretty darn good. Maybe not as satisfying as a hot platter from Casa de Flatulente... bawl.gif Never the less, the idea of keeping the hike's physiological benefits at center stage is starting to grow on me. My metabolism isn't what it used to be. So when I load up on comfort food and then go home and kick back doh.gif  it ends up "feeling" like the trip was a net loss from a wellness perspective.  frown.gif

Bob's Restaurant in Moses Lake if you're near potholes reservoir.  Right offa I-90.  It looks like a cheesy joint in the parking lot of a motel.  Well, it is, actually.  It has this life-sized aluminum palm tree out front, which is what originally piqued my interest.

Best hamburgers ever!

Quark list is fairly comprehensive but missed the A&W in Issaquah. The ambience is great with 50's-60's memorabilia all over the place complementing the hamburgers and fries menu.

There's a place along 101 west of Port Angeles called Grandma's with appropriately greasy grill food that I'll hit when coming back from beach hikes or fishing trips, 'cepit once when I was with a vegetarian. She made us stop at that bakery in P.A., which made an excellent sammich. Also, on 101 just south of Aberdeen en route to the Long Beach Peninsula or the Oregon Coast, there's a place called Clark's that has outstanding home made ice cream. In the Gorge, Big River restaurant in Stevenson is very good.

Beautiful clear skies. A great hike. But the Big River Grill in Stevenson is what Mrs Jimmymac talks about the most when recalling our Dog Mountain excursion. Not just the same old fare. Great service. They had a good variety of sleep aids on tap to compensate for the trains that run through town all night.
