|It was a sunny stretch of weather in December in Seattle. Here we see steam emanating from some local fence-posts.|
|I've been to Daman's quite a few times. It's a traditional sports bar near Microsoft headquarters in a strip mall.|
|I was greeted by a very friendly and fun waitress, Andrea, and provided the menu. I had a bit of a cold and had the day off work. Daman's was on my French Dip To Do List and it sounded comforting, so why not.|
|There is is. Under $15. Came with tots. Was asked if I wanted cheese on it. They have a burger dip option as well.|
|I wait. But not for long. There's a view of the kitchen so I knew if progress was being made.|
|Here it is. Looks really good. Jus looks really rich, tots good, big size. Colored, frilled skewers. And a side of horseradish FTW.|
|The side of good horseradish (not the creamy kind). And you can see the good pickle spear in the bottom left of this picture as well.|
|Was provided with the necessary ketchup and yellow mustard as well for my tots but I wound up not using it. My cold was getting in the way. But horseradish and that fun, intense "nasal hit" would come to the rescue.|
|Jus looks good with some marbling from beef bits.|
|I opened the sandwich and slathered it with horseradish. Why not?!|
|The money shot. Was great.|
|Good bread, nice melted cheese, skewer. Life is good.|
|$16.77 total. I just went with water as a beverage. It was worth it. Good value, I'd say.|
