As I traverse the county eating for my job, I sometimes stumble upon hidden gems restaurants that seem to be tucked into nowhere land. I find them stuck in the recesses of an office building. Sometimes theyre restaurants with no visible sign, sandwiched between two other more prominent businesses. Sometimes theyre located off the street and virtually hidden, save for that lone sandwich board on the sidewalk advertising the menu. This week, Ill tell you about three restaurants that are hidden out of sight, but are worth a visit and your dining dollars. Today, Ill feature The Pickled Pepper, a tiny sandwich cafe tucked into a business complex on East Main Street in Puyallup.
When Colleen Lindberg sent me an email earlier this year telling me about her sandwich shop The Pickled Pepper, I was perplexed that there was a downtown Puyallup cafe Ive never heard of, and it had been operating for eight years. How could I never have seen it?
