Foodie Friday ~ Happy Hours…

Welcome to Foodie Friday hosted by Gollum at Designs by Gollum.

I’ve been doing a lot of running around and eating out more then eating in. One of my favorites for dinner is Happy Hour. I love a bargain so when I can get interesting food for 1/2 price I’m a happy camper! I also enjoy smaller portions of food so this works great for me.


Before a Mariners Baseball game on Monday my kids and I went to happy hour at Boka Kitchen and Bar in downtown Seattle. This was not your typical happy hour bar food.

Sugar cane skewered crab cakes~Dungeness crab w/fresh herbs and lemongrass aioli, served on sugar cane sticks $5.00.

Rhubard bruschetta with rogue river blue cheese, golden raisens, and mint flower honey $4.00.

Tuna Tartines ~ olive oil poached ahi tuna, deviled quail eggs, shaved fennel salad $4.50.

My kids ordered the Angus Beef Burger with truffle fries for $6.50.

love potion no. 9
molten chocolate cake, white chocolate raspberry ice cream, fresh raspberries $8.00. Desserts are not on the happy hour menu but we all decided to share this and it was very good!

The bar was very upscale and the atmosphere was pleasant with comfortable seating.

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

  1. Oh, Ellen… this really looks delicious! YUM! That sounds like a great place to eat, and that meal is just stellar. Thanks for sharing your meal with us. Loved it!

    Happy Foodie Friday…


    Sheila 🙂

  2. Mmmmm, I love a good deviled egg! There used to be a restaurant in Pasadena, now, sadly, gone, that served curried deviled eggs at their salad bar. Oh my!

    Your selections at the Boka Kitchen look scrumptious.

  3. Looks wonderful—we have a similar place here in KC…I’m thinking it’s time to go…it’s tapas and Sangria for half price on Saturdays…yummy stuff.

  4. Oh my, I can get kicked out of a place like that because I would want to keep ordering! LOL You had me at sugarcane and crabcakes, yum!

  5. What wonderful photos! What wonderful food! I’m so impressed that your children were with you. A truffled French fry puts them one step closer to becoming foodies :-). Have a wonderful day .

    Am I dreaming? This sounds incredible! I would never, ever think up such a recipe — it sounds so good!

    It looks like you have been having some wonderful ‘food’ times! Nothing like food in the great PNW.
