FOOD BLOGGER EVENT: Urbanspoon Surprise Saturday Supper at Terra Plata

Last night, as part of the International Food Blogger Conference (IFBC), we were treated to a Surprise Saturday Supper sponsored by Urbanspoon. The supper was one of 25 that were being hosted by Urbanspoon. Each supper was attended by 10-12 food bloggers, and they were located at 25 different restaurants throughout Seattle. I was asked by Urbanspoon to be the host of the supper I was attending. We were lucky enough to be going to Terra Plata on Capitol Hill! This is one restaurant that I have had on my wish list to try out for some time now, so I was very excited to finally be going there.

When we arrived to the restaurant and were seated, and we were treated to a signature cocktail from Terra Plata called the Seattle Rain Drop. To save myself from using the same adjectives like, delicious, tasty, amazing, great, outstanding and so damn good, I will not give individual descriptions on how each course tasted at the supper. I will list out each course with the pictures I took last night. But just so you know, each and every dish was delicious, tasty, amazing, great, outstanding, and so damn good!!

I had the privilege of meeting Linda di Lello Morton, the Co-Founder of Terra Plata. She was so nice and sweet. She told me about her restaurant, and I was happy to let her know that we all really enjoyed our dinner, and all of the food was amazing! I want to thank Urbanspoon, Terra Plata, Foodista.com, and the IFBC for organizing these amazing Surprise Suppers!
