Food Vendors at the Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle

It's always great when you are traveling and when in a city, they happen  to have a local festival with a strong focus in food.

And that was the case this past weekend in Seattle for the Northwest Folklife Festival.

With about 50 food vendors, we had some tough choices to make. In the end, our  choice was to go for the more obscure cuisine options...culinary types I personally seldom find with ease in Buenos Aires or US cities.



So our choices at the 2011 Northwest Folklife Festival were:

Russian Beef Dumplings from Pel'meni:





Pork Lumpia which is a Philipino pork eggroll from Espi's:



And Spicy Beef Sambusa from one of the Kenyan food vendors, Kenyan Kitchen.







Here's the complete list of food vendors. Many will be there again for the Taste of Seattle event on July 15th.
