If only I knew someone who is an expert on Bigfoot. I could ask if Squatches really like pulled pork.

I’m not sure how long “Bigfood BBQ” has been at the Seattle Center, but it was new to me, so I had to try it.

For any out of town readers, Seattle Center is the big urban amusement park where you’ll find the Space Needle, so it’s not totally out of the question that you might end up in Bigfood’s line one day. I’d hate to think of you cursing me for not writing a review.

I passed on the other food court choices, like Skillet, MOD Pizza, and someplace touting Mediterranean kababs. Instead, I pulled up to Bigfood and ordered a nice, predictable pulled pork sandwich, and  I was just hoping it wouldn’t turn out to be Squatch meat.

I was a little concerned when the guy asked me if I wanted “red” sauce or a mustard sauce.  I didn’t really want either. Red sauce? Did he mean, like, ketchup? I asked if the red sauce was sweet, smoky or spicy, and his eyes rolled up in his head like he was suffering a shot from a Taser gun while he tried to mutter through an answer.

“Nevermind,” I said “give me the red sauce.”  (And the answer is sweet).

Anyway, I have to say, for food court tourist trap food, Bigfood wasn’t too bad. I really liked the bread they were using for a roll, and it was toasted.  The slaw on top was crisp. And the pulled pork wasn’t mushy at all, proving yet again, that anyplace that does serve mushy pulled pork really, really sucks.

The sandwich wasn’t particularly special, either. But compared to the Subway and the kabab place? I’d say Bigfood is adequate enough to be a go if you’re wanting some barbecue.
