Review - Nettletown - Seattle, WA


Almost hidden in a tiny strip mall along Eastlake Ave is Nettletown - It's in the old Sitka & Spruce location and next to Eastlake Teriyaki. After meeting a friend in Capitol Hill we decided to try lunch at Nettletown. 

The menu isn't very large, but there's a decent selection of things to try - After browsing, we decided to try to Knoepfli - after asking how to say it.  It sounds like Kuh-nep-fil-ee - I think?  and we decided to share the Cherry Bread Crumble for dessert.

After ordering at the counter you can find a place in the restaurant to sit - It wasn't very crowded on a Friday afternoon so we didn't have a problem finding a table.  

Knoepfli with Bratwurst $11.75

Knoepfli is a swiss spaetzel, similar to orzo - rice shaped pasta.  It's sauteed with red cabbage, leeks and herbs and topped with a Rain Shadow Meats Bratwurst.  It tasted kind of like fried rice, with the different texture from the Knoepfli. The portion is generous too!

Cherry Bread Crisp $5

The Cherry Bread Crisp was ok - It was served with cardamom whipped cream - It was really light in flavor, and kind of lackluster.  Bummer.  It sounded good on the menu!

Overall, Nettletown was allright - I wouldn't go out of my way to return but if I were in the area I'd try it again.
