Bellevue >Porcella Urban Market
A farewell to Porcella..
This was our favorite place for coffee (Best Coffee by far in Bellevue) and for foods that you won't find at the majority of your standard american restaurants. Unfortunatelly, they are closing and another asian restaurant will be open there soon. Too bad...Don't get me wrong, I like asian food, but there are so many asian restaurants around and so few really european places....
Kelly good luck to you!
Not sanitary!. The food seemed ok although not our style. My problem was that our server handled our money, and then proceeded to touch our food! Even Subway has rules on that! Then he stocked with his bare hands the bread basket, and then touched our money again. I was pretty appalled. Maybe they are going for "European" sanitary standards.
Awesome Find. Shhh, don't tell anyone about this place. What a find, I may never have to cook again, with all the selection of restaurant quality meals ready to take home and heat up. Think of all the thing i can do with my free time. Great grocery selection of hard to find items at realatively decent prices. Awesome wine, cheese and meat selection which is wonderful for quick appetizers for guests. Porcella is one good reason to go to Bellevue.
Wonderful French Deli in a Charming Location. This is the place to go when you are looking for french deli or unusual high-end ingredients. Where else can you get duck confit, leg of lamb and other classic dishes ready to go in the deli. There is also a small market carrying diverse and interesting ingredients from duck fat to truffle oil. The sandwiches are incredible and all come with truffle frieds which are out of this world. The only difficulty with this place if finding parking.
One of the best meals I have ever had.. I have been here twice and it has been each time one of the best meals I have ever had. For the quality of food.. $13 to $20 a plate is cheap.. trust me. The creme brulee is the best I've ever had.. by far. The custard was absolutely perfect. I'm amazed that the current rating on here is only 8.6.. which is absurd. It should be about 9.8. And if you live in the area.. you HAVE try this place. Primarily french with new culinary wave influences. Amazing. Truly.
Incredible food - best sandwiches ever!. Porchella is a god send for Bellevue - a European style market that serves great prepared foods, charcuterie and sandwiches. I've eaten at Porchella several times and have always been impressed by the quality of the food. Try the proscuitto sandwich, its to die for with the fried egg on top and truffle chips that come on the side - hmmm very yummy.
Best Charcuterie in town.. These guys know what they are doing. While most markets feature purchased charcuterie items, they are making it from scratch with local organic meats. The shop is beautiful with unique foodie treasures from around the world and dinners are fabulous. The bistro portion of the space feels like something out of a French movie. The menu was fabulous and well priced, the wine list (off the shelves of the store) is amazing, and only a 5$ corkage fee. If you live on the east side, make a point to spend an afternoon here then go over to Bis on Main for some cocktails.
High-class takeout and gourmet market caters to the foodies of the Eastside..
The front-of-store deli case is filled with a treasure trove of house-cured meats, gourmet cheese and prepared meals to eat in or take out, such as roast duck with a side of filled squash. The glassed-in room behind the counter displays the chef's in-progress charcuterie. On the store side, simple wooden shelves are stocked with delectable gourmet goods--Spanish polenta, Moroccan lemons, exotic jams--while the refrigerated section offers premade soup stocks and demi-glaze.
