“Went here on 12/2/2018 after attending the Victorian Christmas fair in Puyallup. I ordered a Riesling with their Asian Chicken Salad. Had amazingly attentive quick service, enjoyed the unique power grid buzzer that would get set off when a train would go by (novelty thing in their decor). Thght the chicken spice and duration cooked was spot on. Light fresh dressing, the bread with it was also very tasty and fresh. Id go again and get the same thing! It wasn't that busy when we went so please keep that in mind with expectations when served. very good spot tho! ”

Music Venue
“OK so this is a restaurant and a fair trade store with stuff from around the world. I was in Istanbul Turkey at a great shop that re-purposed old prayer rugs, and they actually asked me if I knew of this place. Small world, 5 minutes from the bungalow. Food options are totally organic. Speakers and music in the restaurant. Check the schedule. ”

“If you like Cajun food, you'll love Bourbon Street. Located on Meridian downtown across from Pioneer Park, there's so many good items on the menu. While you're there, ask if Mikey is bartending and if he is, ask for "bartenders choice". He's an artist with spirits and liqueurs and makes delicious adult beverages. And the owner, Mike, sometimes joins the live music performances. Eating out here is an experience.”
