More West Seattle food news: Skillet cooking up a plan

(Skillet promotional clip from 8/2008 – find other clips on this YouTube channel)
The portable cuisine of Skillet may soon turn up on this side of the bay. Thanks to Clint for the tip – he saw it in the Skillet newsletter, and we found it repeated online:

additionally we are probably going to be moving away from our sunday fremont experiment and looking for a west seattle location… probably shooting for the 19th of the month

Clint adds, “If you’ve experienced Skillet’s cuisine, you’ll agree that having the trailer in our neighborhood would make for a superb take-home Sunday brunch. I’d be curious to see how many other WSB devotees feel the same way. Maybe we can convince Skillet that WS would make a good home.” We’ll see what more we can find out (meantime, you can explore their main info site here).

There Kobe Burger is GREAT!!! I can’t say enough about them! Ohhhhhh, I wish it was Tuesday again….just for lunch time! =)

    I just found their clips on YouTube and the one I added to this item includes an explanation of “The Burger,” as well as their signature “bacon jam” – TR

    This would be great for WS! They have great food and a great attitude.

  • WSB April 2, 2009 (10:07 am)

    Yes, that site is linked to their name above. I don’t like to make a distinction between “website” and “blog” – the latter is just a web-publishing format. But I’ll make it a little clearer regarding which of their websites we’re pointing people to – TR

    They can park at my house!

    West Seattle waistlines are in trouble! I have girlfriends who rave about Skillet. I think it’d be great. Thank you WSB for keeping us informed about what’s really important in life.

  • AJP April 2, 2009 (10:17 am)

    Skillet comes to the hinterlands! Huzzah! :)

  • rockergirl5678 April 2, 2009 (10:45 am)

    Would be great to have them at the Farmers Market on Sundays or at least nearby! Looks yummy.

  • JanS April 2, 2009 (10:45 am)

    damn, we love to eat over here, don’t we? lol. I’m looking forward to experiencing their cuisine :)

  • Jiggers April 2, 2009 (12:45 pm)

    Mmmmm Opossum meat.

  • A.L. April 2, 2009 (1:11 pm)

    I have multiple friends who rave about skillet, but have never had a chance to check them out – I would gladly welcome them to the neighborhood!

  • Venkat April 2, 2009 (1:15 pm)

    Never been, but several *very reliable* sources highly recommend it. I’d go just to support an interesting venture!

  • RS April 2, 2009 (1:21 pm)

    Yum!!! Can’t wait!!! SUCH a good burger. And Bacon Jam!! You can buy it by the jar, too! I hope they set up a super secret location and our intrepid WSB reporters can’t find them for at least a few weeks so the lines aren’t so long. :)

  • OP April 2, 2009 (2:30 pm)

    FIre it up, and bring it to WS! We’ll eat it!

  • Meghan April 2, 2009 (2:44 pm)

    Spring Hill, Bakery Nouveau, a new restaurant from Herban Feast, and now possibly Skillet? Wow! Our culinary cups runneth over!

  • west seattle golfer April 2, 2009 (4:22 pm)

    I love me some Bacon Jam!! Come to WS Skillet! I bet you’ll have a line around the parking lot waiting for your delectable delights!

  • ArborHeightsMom April 2, 2009 (4:44 pm)

    This is super exciting. West Seattle rocks even harder now.

    I have never heard of this wonderful provider, now I must search them out and try it. After all, as a good former friend said, “do you know how much work it is to keep up this weight….” I use that as my excuse…

    Skillet is the bomb-digety. Many of my co-workers here at a particular coffee company in SODO visit when the airstream is here on Tuesdays.

Sorry, comment time is over.
