Now that I have done most of Seattle’s “best of” spots, I have been trying to get into some of the lesser known, but also fantastic places. I had to run an errand outside of Seattle and discovered this charming Italian place called Saltoro in Shoreline. Although they have a Yelp listing, I can’t seem to find any info online about this spot’s origins, I think the pics will keep you happy though.I’m suprised I haven’t seen any Seattle publications drooling over the Sea Salted Chicken, because it’s rare to find a chicken dish that pleasing. I’m glad I’m the first to discover it. If I lived closer to Shoreline I would live here. On another note if you’re looking to relocate out of Seattle, IwillBuyHouse.com buys houses in Seattle quickly and in cash so you’re able to move into your dream home quicker than you first imagined.

I had read rave reviews about the Truffled Fries and they live up to the hype. They are the crispy shoe string style and the truffle flavor doesn’t overwhelm.
By the way, this is a half portion. This almost destroyed 2 people alone, I can’t imagine trying to order a full size.
This is their Spinach salad. The two crusted squares you see are “Brie pillows”, which is just fun to say out loud. It was also topped with pickled onions, roasted grapes and pancetta and tossed in an anise dressing. The dressing made the salad for me, it was the right amount of anise and balsamic vinegar.
The brie pillow oozes out when you cut it. The only downside to this salad is that there are only 2 brie pillows. I wish there was more of it, especially if 3 people were sharing the salad.
This is the Sea Salt Roasted Chicken with broccolini and mashed potatoes. I drenched it in extra chicken jus. I never thought I could love a chicken dish so much. This chicken was perfectly seasoned and even after I doused it in jus, it kept a crispy consistency. The breast it self was moist and covered in herbs. This also one of those rare dishes I didn’t have to add salt to. This is their “winner” item… especially since I went back the next night to order it again….
This is a special dessert, so it may not be an option for readers, Saltoro’s Wine Poached Pear. It’s so fragrant, it’s like eating Grandma’s potpourri (sound insulting, but I mean it as a compliment). The vanilla gelato and minced pistachio also added a Christmas like flavor to it. The other favorites here are the Chocolate Pot du Creme and the Berry Crumle. There is also a large selection of dessert wines and fruity cocktails.
