Fremont Hot Spots In Seattle Weekly’s Restaurant Guide

March 24th, 2011 by master

Seattle Weekly’s annual Restaurant Guide is out and there’s a few Fremont spots that made the cut.

All of a sudden, Fremont has a burger war brewing. Blue Moon Burgers and Uneeda Burger both get shoutouts in the Best Burger section, representing Lower and Upper Fremont (however you describe them), respectively.

In the “Meat and Potatoes” section, Paseo its requisite call out for their Cuban roast pork sandwich goodness.

Taking a break from meat-specific spots, new-ish restaurant Revel is one of their favorite Noodle joints.

Check out the full guide to see some other nearby notables, including Book Bindery (across the water in Queen Anne). What do you think? Any shocking omissions from the list?

Fremont Fotos

January 27th, 2011 by master

Apropos of nothing, I had a couple photos handy from the last few days and wanted to share…

The weather’s been warmer the last couple days but otherwise, it’s been chilly. Glad to see the Fremont Troll is all scarfed up.

The best thing about Uneeda Burger? They answered the age-old question, “What am I supposed to do with all those nametags on the Table O’Nametags at the Fremont Sunday Market?” Now we know.

‘Quirky’ Fremont Featured By BBC

January 27th, 2011 by master

If you happen to notice an influx of English, Irish, Welsh and Scottish accents in Fremont over the course of the next 6-12 months, you can probably thank the BBC for it’s story on Fremont that’s currently featured on their homepage.

The article is a rundown of Fremont for tourists who might be interested in stopping by on their trip to Seattle.

This neighbourhood, less than five miles north of the heart of downtown Seattle, continues its legacy of public art, everyday weirdness, and off-the-wall-events inclined towards nudity and costumes. Yet its popularity, soaring rent prices, new luxury condos, and inundation of high tech company offices have transformed it into something a tad different than its tie-dyed forefathers and mothers anticipated.

Fair enough.

They also name-check the Fremont Sunday Market, Hub and Bespoke, Flying Apron Bakery, Uneeda Burger, Brouwer’s Cafe, ETG Cafe and hey, this blog! The post itself comes courtesy of Lonely Planet, though with all of the Brits currently planning to visit us now, I don’t think we’ll be too lonely in our own little universe for long.

Uneeda Burger Set To Open*

December 21st, 2010 by master

Uneeda Burger, the new burger joint at 4302 Fremont Avenue, will officially open its doors on Monday, December 27th.  But here’s a pro-tip if you can’t wait until then…

Just head on over right now, walk inside, order your burger, exchange legal tender for said burger and eat that burger.

Uneeda Burger is having a “quiet opening” this week, which I suppose I’m defeating the purpose of by telling you, but there you go.

I stopped by just to take some photos when I just so happened to find this out for myself. I snapped some photos and spoke with one of the General Managers, Peter, who ran me through the many, many fresh and local ingredients that will be Uneeda Burger’s hallmark.

The burgers are priced between $6.25 and $12.00, depending on what you go with. I sampled the Crispy Emmer Veggie Burger myself (#10) and you definitely get your money’s worth with that loaded meal.

For their regular burgers, they will be serving Painted Hills Beef that has been especially prepared for the restaurant. You can also swap that for Whidbey Island Crescent Harbor 100% Wagyu (Kobe) Beef if you like. You can also upgrade to grass-fed beef from Thundering Hooves for an additional $3.00/$4.00.

They also offer chicken breast sandwich, BLT, hot dog, soup, chili and salads amongst other items.

For dessert you can get hand-dipped ice cream shakes in a bunch of different flavors as well as floats and artisan sodas.

For beer drinkers, they’ve got three beers (PBR, Manny’s and Odin) on draught as well as a full bottle selection. There’s also a sizable wine selection to choose from.

FYI, the restuarant will be closed Friday through Sunday this week for Christmas but open again on Monday “for real.” Normal operating hours are 11am – 9pm Monday through Thursday, 11am – 10pm Saturday and 11am – 8pm Sunday.

The website (www.uneedaburger.com) isn’t live yet but will be by Monday.

More photos after the jump.

Hope You Got Your Paseo Fix For The Holidays

December 20th, 2010 by master

The line outside Paseo was long on Saturday. That’s nothing new. But it seemed even longer than usual, if that’s possible. One look at the storefront answered why…

Hope you stocked your freezer with Cuban pork sandwiches. If you didn’t, fret not. Word on the street is that Uneeda Burger will be opening this week, so you’ll still be able to get your meaty sandwich fix.

New burger joint opening in Fremont

October 7th, 2010 by master

The people behind Quinn’s Pub on Capitol Hill have decided to try their hands at burgers in Fremont.  Our partners at the Seattle Times report Uneeda Burger will open in the former Urbanweeds location at 4302 Fremont Avenue.  The name comes from another former tenant of the building, Uneeda Auto and Boat Rebuild.

UrbanWeeds

“We’ll have two levels of burgers,” chef Scott Staples told the Times. “Your standard quarter-pound Painted Hills beef” and — for a buck or two more — grass-fed beef from Thundering Hooves. 

Uneeda Burger is expected to open in the next couple of months.
