Yellowtail sashimi - The Source
Pickled jalapeno, citrus ponzu. Happy hour 3 food items for $22
The Source, Washington DC

This is a pretty good appetizer! You can choose any 3 items on their lounge menu for twenty two bucks. Count me in! This sashimi was ok. I question the freshness of the fish. It didn’t taste old or bad, but it also didn’t taste super fresh.

Pork belly steamed buns – Momofuku Ssam Bar

Pork belly steamed buns - Momofuku Ssam Bar
Hoisin, cucumber, scallion. $10
Momofuku Ssam Bar, New York NY

The super fatty pork belly pieces had a great flavor, but there was just too much grease everywhere! The buns were literally soaked in grease from the pool underneath. Even the cucumbers couldn’t cut the flavor of the grease. I loved the hot sauce that came in the tiny squirt bottle (although it wasn’t very hot).

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.
