Pike Place Market is about discovery and re-discovery. I never get tired of it and there’s always something that I’ve never seen or experienced before. Tankard & Tun recently opened a Walk-Up Window at the Market and my Seattle Foodie Podcast co-host, Nelson Lau and I had a chance to check it out.
The Walk-Up Window provides opportunities. Opportunities to take your food on the go as you explore nooks and crannies around the Market. Opportunities to eat at the Brew Deck while watching your favorite sporting event with friends. Opportunities to share a meal with out of town friends that you haven’t seen in 9 years. So many opportunities around a simple concept that makes a lot of sense.
On the menu, you’ll find Tankard & Tun favorites like three different kinds of fish & chips, chowder, and fried oysters. There are Walk-Up Window exclusives like chicken drums, corn dogs, and fried favorites. We tried quite a bit of the menu during our visit.
Nelson raved about the chowder which is full of rockfish, salmon, mussels, vegetables, and herbs. It’s hearty and delicious!
By now, you may have heard Episode 042 of the podcast (listen below if you haven’t) or seen my stories. I do not and have not ever liked corndogs. When I saw a corndog on the menu, I was lukewarm but said I would try it. I’m glad I did because it was the best thing I ate that day! A Bavarian Meats wiener is hand-dipped and served with organic yellow mustard. Delish!
Tankard & Tun has a winner with the Walk-Up Window. It’s great because I can run in and out, grab a corndog, and finish my errands at Pike. Check it out if you haven’t already! Thanks to Tankard & Tun and the Pike Brewing Company family for hosting us!
