Best Local Places Tourists Don't Know About...Yet

Bloomer Estates Recommends

Mycovios

 

Corner of Bay Avenue and North Place in Ocean Park (just west of the one Stop LIght)

 

So you wanted to go to Europe but ended up in Long Beach, Washington.  You are in luck. Europe came to us.  This is a unique experience you won't want to miss. There are only 3 tables in this restaraunt and no reservations and just 2 employees! Paul, your Dutch master chef from Amsterdam is 6 foot 4, and both cooks and does the dishes. The food is classic Italian, as in what you would taste if you had made that trip to Italy.  This is not fast food. You come to enjoy a bottle of wine, order 3 or 4 courses, and make an evening of it. The lines form at 4:00 PM and are there until closing.  But you can put your name in, and 20 minutes before a table opens up they will call you.  Or you can stay at 1303 Bay Ave or 1303 Guest House next door and just walk over when your table is ready.  Tell Paul Bloomer Estates sent you.

Pattys Fish Tacos

 

Downtown Long Beach, WA

The best Fish tacos in town-by far! Pattys is awesome, and a must stop for anyone visiting the Long Beach Peninsula. Patty's is downtown, just next to Marshes Free Museum. 

The Old Fishtrap

779 State Route 101, Chinook WA

Tel: 360 777-8296

 

This customer put it perfectly: "Complete dive, that being said though they’re the NICEST BUNCH OF PEOPLE WORKING THERE AND THE FOOD IS AMAZING!!! I need to go back and try some other things. I got the prawns. Butterflied, Panko breaded, perfectly fried. They make their own sauces. I got the tartar and cocktail and found myself eating both equally. Don’t let the looks of the place fool you!!! Go! Now!!"

Long Beach Barbecue

Downtown Long Beach, across the street from Street Time Tacos (same owners).

 

New business in downtown Long Beach so I can just go on my first visit. But WOW were the ribs amazing.  The owner has a brand new high tech smoker (210 degrees 3 to 4 hours) which is how long ribs need to be smoked to come easily off the bone. They are choosing the best meats, and making their own sauces. I thought I would try them all, but I started with the sweet chili and went no further! I will have to force myself to try more sauses next time. The 1/2 rack of ribs with 2 sides and the cornbread muffin was a great deal that covered lunch and dinner for me. They also cater to up to 200 people.
