Triple D: Bizarro Italian Cafe

25 Nov

I’m addicted to the Food Network show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.” I have yet to find any Vancouver equivalents to the eateries on the show, so I was super excited to head down to Seattle to try out a few restaurants that were featured on “Triple D” (as host Guy calls it). Here’s one of ’em:

Bizarro Italian Cafe

1307 N. 46th St.
Seattle, WA 98103

Open: Daily for dinner – 5pm-10pm

These pictures don’t even begin to tell you how bizarre the inside of Bizarro’s is. We came by for dinner and I immediately fell in love with the kitschy, eclectic mix of knick knacks everywhere. THE FOOD WAS AMAZING. I highly recommend this place to anyone going to Seattle- even for just a day. It’s an experience that’s completely worth the drive.

*note: the menu changes seasonally, so some dishes may not be available when you go

Foccacia bread and dipI’m pretty sure the foccacia is made in-house. Soft and had a subtle rosemary flavor. The dip really made this. The balsamic vinegar was full of flavor and even the olive oil tasted different from anything I’ve had before.

Starter salad
– came with our entrees. The dressing is almost identical to the bread dip, so you know I liked this lol

Gnocchi with truffle braised beef perfectly made, pillowy gnocchi, truffle infused, tender beef, and a nice dollop of ricotta= heaven on a plate

Lasagna– very cheesy, perfectly spiced meat, and the marinara sauce was the right balance of sweet, spicy and sour. They get bonus points for handmaking their own pasta.

Tiramisu- I think thin layers of cake were substituted for lady fingers here. Nonetheless, it was a great, sweet treat to end our meal with.

All the tables were covered with a layer of glass, letting you see the notes, doodles and recommendations that other diners had left behind. We even found a business card from a bonafide Bigfoot investigator. Here’s what we left behind- find our table when you give Bizarro’s a visit 🙂
