Seattle, WA: Txori Bar in Belltown

I recommend Txori Bar in Belltown area of Seattle. We randomly stopped in on Sunday afternoon on our way to Pikes Place Market and really enjoy the quisine from northern spain. We had: torilla espanola - potato onion omelet w/ alioli; pa amb tomoquet - toasted bread, jamon, tomato, garlic; piquillo con meriuza - hake, bechamel, piquillo, tomato frito; pintxo moruno - braised pork with roasted green pepper; and the lemon flan.

My favorites were the piquillo con meriuza and the pintxo moruno. The hake is a white fish that just melted in your mouth and the braised pork was tender enough to cut with a fork. These are tapas style dishes and are not more than a few bites each so don't go there if you are starving but for light snack it was perfect.
