Order the Jungle Curry at Saffron Deli and Pastry

October 22, 2014 4:03 pm

Saffron Deli and Pastry is a hidden gem in Issaquah for South Asian fare favorites. The menu is varied and always changing, but this eatery is known for flavorful pho with a unique broth—a must try. Other favorites include the Lao Sausage and the Jungle Curry with eggplant, chicken, and bamboo shoots.

What the portions lack in size, the friendly owner makes up for in customer service. She’s welcoming to her customers and makes everything to order. It’s a small space but rarely packed, so don’t be surprised if you are the only one there. The light blue walls and batik tablecloths make for a cheery ambiance.

2014 World Series

October 20, 2014 7:47 pm

The 2014 World Series starts tomorrow evening. This years contenders are a couple of underdogs that pretty much shocked the baseball community this season. The Kansas City Royals will take on the San Francisco Giants in the best of 7 baseball classic. The series opener will be held at Kaufmann Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri tomorrow night. The game can be seen on FOX at 5:07pm Pacific time.

This year marks the 110th year of the World Series and should prove to be a good one!

Recipe Bank

October 20, 2014 6:04 pm

Hi All,

Just wanted to test the waters with this and see what kind of feedback we get. I would be interested in starting a "Recipe Bank" of sorts here on site. What is a "Recipe Bank" you ask? My idea is as follows: Residents bring in a couple of their favorite recipes, each on a 3" x 5" index card and leave them here at the office with me. Once we have built up our repertoire of recipes, residents would be able to come in and get fresh new ideas from other like minded foodies!

Eventually if we received enough entries I think it would be awesome to put together an ECM cookbook of sorts that we could hand out with our care packages to new residents to help welcome people to the community!

Please send thoughts/recipes to cougarmtnmkt@windsorcommunities.com or swing by the office with a couple of your favorites so we can get the "dough" rolling on this!

Thanks All!
