Snakehead fish, tamarind, khi nu chilies, pork rinds. Tasting menu $45
Little Serow, Washington DC
I loved this restaurant. The food was delicious, unique, and actually spicy. This dried fish paste served with pork rinds was great and definitely woke up the palate.
Saison Dupont. $5
Maryland State House, Annapolis MD.
Crab cake minis, crispy shrimp and calamari, trio of dipping sauces. $14.49
Phillips Famous Seafood, Charlotte International Airport (CLT)
Ew, this was disgusting! Everything on this plate was dry, over-fried, and flavorless. Even the crab cakes were from the fryer. Who cooks crab cakes in a fryer?! Gross.
Angry Orchard cider. Bottle $6.49
Thank goodness for alcohol at airports, lol!
At the Crafty Bastards Fair and Union Market. $5
New Belgium Brewing Company, Washington DC
Nothing beats a nice cold beer while walking around in the hot sun at an arts and crafts fair, lol! This beer was actually really tasty!
Volcano: shrimp tempura, spicy tuna, eel, avocado, cucumber, roe, spicy mayo, eel sauce. $9
Dynamite Wasabi: tuna, salmon, yellow tail, wasabi fish roe. $8.50
Raku, Washington DC
These rolls were ok. The sushi rice was really dry though so I couldn’t get over that part. I liked the flavors of both, but they were difficult to eat because of the crappy rice.
Kirin Ichiban Japanese draft beer.
Old Post Office Pavilion.
Battered and fried steak with country gravy and whipped potatoes. $11
The Firkin & Fox, Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD)
The exterior of this chicken fried steak was a bit hard, but I kinda liked it. The interior was still juicy and not over done so I didn’t mind the hard coating. It also prevented the gravy from soaking into the steak. I normally would prefer it to, but maybe that much gravy isn’t the best to eat right before boarding a flight, lol!
Blue Moon. $8
Shenandoah Caverns, Quicksburg VA.
I attended my first Nats game this summer and I really enjoyed their ballpark. (It’s no AT&T Park, but I’m biased, lol!) The Nationals Park was clean and the fans were friendly and well behaved. They also had a great selection of food and drinks. Large $9.75
Base Line Brews, Washington DC
Spicy sausage, kale and russet potatoes in creamy broth.
Olive Garden, Martinsburg WV
Why me?! I was dragged to Olive Garden by some co-workers who wanted to eat some “good” Italian food, lol! This soup was marginal. It was very salty and not very exciting.
Blue Moon draft beer. $4.99
Log cabin, Morven Park, Leesburg VA.
