One of the many Tom Douglas restaurants in the Seattle area, Serious Biscuit is one of his more affordable places. It’s located in the Dalia Workshop, which is actually just a collection of Serious Pie, Serious Biscuit, and some wine place downstairs. I’ve had pizza from Serious Pie before and thought it was good but a little pricy. They do cure their own meats for some of the pizzas so I understand the higher price point but I guess I’m more of a $1.99/slice Costco pizza person. So coming to the Dalia Workshop I knew I would going for the biscuits.
My first time here I was able to beat the lunch time rush and grab a table for my party instantly. I ordered the Fennel Sausage Biscuit which comes with fennel sausage (of course), a fried egg, pepper relish, and fontina for about $9 after tax.
There were so many good things about this dish. First off, the biscuit was super flaky and in my opinion had just the tiniest hint of lemon. The sausage was also really good. The fennel was very present but did not over power the other flavors in the dish. Kind of made the sandwich taste like a pizza. And of course the egg. You put an egg (or bacon) on anything and its instantly better. Needless to say I really enjoyed this dish. So much so I came back 2 days later.
The second trip here we hit the lunch time rush and had to wait half an hour before being seated at one of the large community tables with a two other parties (it gets pretty cozy). I decided to switch it up this time and ordered the Zach, which is the Fried Chicken Biscuit (fried chicken, Tabasco black pepper gravy) with the addition of bacon and an egg for $10.90 after tax. Another delicious combo of flavors but for fried chicken in a sandwich it’s not quite as good as the Fried Chicken Sammy from Skillet.
Note – There’s no reserved seating downstairs. You just get in line to order your food and pray a table will open up. If you go up stairs there’s tons of large communal tables where a server will wait your table.
