Seattle Culinary Oddities and Rogues

One last Seattle question, I promise... For now. Seattle is known for being a bit eclectic. Are there any odd, weird, unusual places in Seattle worth checking out?

Thanks!

Well, yes. Fremont neighborhood has a few. There is a Russian style pelmeni house behind the Soviet era lenin statue - not very typical to see one anywhere. There is a very tiny little pinball arcade/ bar in Fremont called Add-A-Ball, it is located in the basement of a building and you can only enter through the troll looking doors in the alley way. Their beer selection isnt great (I only remember two beers being available) and their food consists of jalapeno popcorn from the microwave and grilled cheese sandwiches. But the arcade games are very fun and so is the location. Typically haunted by crowds on mopeds. There is a little grilled fish sandwich shop smack dab in the middle of Pikes Place Market called the Market Grill, a bit touristy but very fun to sit in the middle of all the walker-bys, you kind of pay for the unusual view of a thousand people walk right past you while you eat your sandwich and clam chowder. After eating you can go check out the gum wall, etc etc, really depends on what you would consider odd, unusual, or weird really.
