    Pike Place Market is a landmark of #Seattle, and one of the oldest continuously functioning markets in the United States. I had been there once before when I was a kid, but this time I was on a mission to go on the ultimate Pike Place Market food tour!

    In this video you’ll find some of the best food within the market and all the details about what to order and eat when you’re in Seattle, Washington. One tip - go early to start eating before the main huge rush comes - when it gets to mid-day, the market is packed.

    Here are all the restaurants we tried at #PikePlaceMarket:

    Lowell's Restaurant - For breakfast we went to the legendary Lowell's Restaurant, serving a mix of classic American food including seafood. I wanted to try their dungeness crab eggs benedict, which was a little expensive, but pretty good.
    Dungeness crab eggs benedict - $25

    Pure Food Fish Market - Next to Lowell’s don’t miss the smoked salmon. Again, it’s not cheap, but it’s so good, salmon glistening and embedded with smoke.
    ½ Pound salmon - $16.56

    Ghost Alley Espresso - Next on this Pike Place Market food tour I was in desperate need of a coffee to begin the morning so we navigated our way past the gnarly gum alley to Ghost Alley Espresso. Great place for a quick cup of espresso.
    Doppio espresso - $3

    Piroshky Piroshky - A legendary bakery that serves mostly Russian influenced baked goods, both sweet and savory, is Piroshky Piroshky. Again, I tried to keep it pretty classic, and Seattle style, so Jason and I split the salmon pate piroshky. It was very tasty, with a cream cheesy taste.
    Salmon - $6.85

    Pike Place Chowder - Having won every chowder competition and award in the US as possible, Pike Place Chowder serves America’s #1 Chowder. So you know you can’t miss it when you go to Pike Place Market. We got in line about 20 minutes before they opened and line didn’t take long. You order, get your chowder, and then sit down. I don’t have too much experience with chowder, but indeed it was good, and I also really liked the seafood bisque.
    Total price - $37.76 total

    Beecher's Handmade Cheese - Another classic is Beecher's Handmade Cheese where you can sample cheese curds and also order grilled cheese sandwiches.
    Flagship sandwich - $7.49

    Ellenos Real Greek Yogurt - They also have a very loyal following and for sure it’s some of the best yogurt I’ve ever tried.

    Market Grill - Finally to end this Seattle food tour we stopped at Market Grill, right in the heart of the market and I ordered the grilled salmon plate. Overall, it was good, and a perfect ending to this extreme food tour!
    Grilled salmon plate - $15

    Thank you for watching!

                                  Love Mark and his family, but best New England chowder is Seattle?!?!?! People from Boston and New England like myself can’t see that happening. Still love you and your family.

                                      Usual Wiens tactic, smother eveything in pepper or chilli and lose the subtles flavours... I swear the guy's blown any tastebuds he has left to bits

                                              My wife took me when I visited her on assignment! I had Seafood platter with bowl of chowder! Wow! Little pricey but worth it for the adventure! Also found a BBQ spot which was made from a trailer. DON'T remember the name but it had a long line and near the University! Darn good food and worth the wait!

It's really good, and they have different flavors to cater to your taste. Here's a tip though: get the yogurt in small size, or if you're feeling like you still have lots of room in your stomach, get a medium. Don't get a Large. It can be pretty overwhelming. Also, you guys have to keep in mind that Seattle pays REALLY well AND Mark filmed this video in Pike Place Market a.k.a the most touristy thing you can do here in Seattle (besides going to the Space Needle LOL). Everything in Downtown Seattle is expensive, and we can do nothing but to accept it. However, if you drive all the way to King Station (which is like, a 5-10 min. drive), you'll find really, really cheap and delicious food in Chinatown. Or, you can just drive up to University District (where UW is located) and try a bunch of restaurants there. They have a bunch of great restaurants, too! OR, drive further North. There, you will find even MORE great food.
