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.
Mozzarella sticks, spinach and artichoke dip, cheese quesadilla grande, boneless wings. $12.89
Applebee’s, Charles Town WV
This was disgusting and I’m actually ashamed I ordered this to eat all by myself. Hey, I like a greasy appetizer as much as the next guy, but everything on this plate was really low quality and tasted horrible. I definitely didn’t finish it and swore I wouldn’t return to Applebee’s during my trip.
Corona light beer. $4.39
Brunswick Railroad Museum, Maryland.
This place is totally relaxed and the service in friendly. The beers are pretty tasty too! $5
Bad Jimmy’s Brewing Co., Seattle WA
Spicy sausage link topped with slaw, cheese and pickles. $6
The Boar’s Nest, Seattle WA
Ooh, this was good! I loved the slaw/cheese/pickle combo for the topping. The hot link was also very flavorful and it had a nice kick.
