Kimchi, avocado, carrot, scallion, gochujang sauce. $9.95
Old Ebbitt Grill, Washington DC
These tacos tasted great! I loved the Korean flavors, and the pork belly was fatty and delicious. They were also a nice filling size and decently priced.
DC Brau “The Public” pale ale. $6.95
Kitchen reconstruction, Mount Vernon VA.
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.
Atlas District Common draft beer. $8
Mount Vernon VA.
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).
Stateside saison beer. $9
Empire Fulton Ferry State Park, Brooklyn Bridge.
Cheese, lettuce, served with pico de gallo and sour cream. $9
Penn Social, Washington DC
This was a pretty small portion, but the pulled pork tasted really good! It had a sweetness to it that I enjoyed. The bar patrons were on the younger side and it definitely had a college party atmosphere.
Beer. Happy hour $5
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!
