Two of the BEST restaurants to try

Trapper's Sushi and Cafe Flora were selected by the voters of Western Washington in 2016's Best of Western Washington contest as BEST Sushi and BEST Vegetarian.

SEATTLE - Trapper's Sushi and Cafe Flora were selected by the voters of Western Washington in 2016's Best of Western Washington contest as BEST Sushi and BEST Vegetarian. 

It's locally owned, and all-you-can-eat: Trapper's Sushi is your pick for best sushi. 

You won't find conveyor belts here -- or steep prices. Trapper's thinks outside the bento box.

"We don't keep it traditional, it's more of an Americanized style of sushi"

Trapper's tweaks traditional sushi with tempura, and sauces.

It may be the only place on the planet with a 'Timmy' roll.

"I invented this,” said Director of Operations Tim Stanhope. “It's uh Salmon, Tuna, Yellowtail, Crab, then we tempura the whole roll.”

The food is unique, and that’s exactly the point.

"It is kind of nice to get a little bit different taste than the normal sushi place," said guest Nick Hanson.

This Northwest twist on a Japanese staple keeps sushi lovers coming back for more.

Another great restaurant to give a try? Café Flora.

This has been Seattle’s go-to vegetarian spot since 1991 and Cafe flora is your pick for best vegetarian restaurant.

Organic? Locally sourced? Gluten free? This place was doing that kind of food long before it was trendy.

It's so vegetarian folks pick up their CSA boxes here, but even meat lovers enjoy cafe flora's fare.

This butternut and apple pizza would tempt anyone to try squash.

The Oaxaca tacos -- stuffed with smoked mozzarella and mashed potatoes -- are so good, regulars started a petition when they were briefly dropped from the menu.

There's one thing owner Nat Stratton-Clarke wants to make clear about how cafe flora does vegetarian:

“I hear so often, oh, vegetarian food. Oh it's brown rice and tofu,” said Nat. “Not that brown rice and tofu isn't great, but it's so much more than that.”
