As much as I love my new home in Central Oregon, I am occasionally homesick for the Seattle area. No time so much as lunchtime. I miss teriyaki the most. Sure, there’s pseudo-Japanese/Seattle fusion fast food on just about every corner and every strip mall in western Washington – but over on the dry side I’ve only ever seen one, and it is in Redmond (a 20+ minute drive from my office.)
Yes, I even miss those quirky, crazy clams at Ivars. But I must carry on without them.
