If you can spare a day then head to Whidbey Island on a ferry. Go to Toby’s Tavern. Get the Penn Cove mussels. Oh, wait, I haven’t mentioned. The town of Coupeville sits on PENN COVE. So, yes, the mussels come from a few yards away. They’re simply the very best. Small and so tender. Yes, you can eat two pounds of them. We had to get a second basket of garlic bread. And a bottle of Hogue Sauvignon Blanc. Trust me.
