Truffle tots – Tonic East

Truffle tots - Tonic East
Ketchup. $8
Tonic East, New York NY

I didn’t read good things about the food here, so I thought I’d play it safe with tater tots since I wasn’t really hungry anyway. You really can’t mess up fried tots, right? Anyways, these were actually pretty good and they give you plenty of them so it’s great for sharing.

Mimosa - Tonic East
Mimosa. Carafe $8
Uh, a great price when there’s no bottomless!

Mexican benedict – Fuego Cocina y Tequileria

Mexican benedict - Fuego Cocina y Tequileria
Crispy masa shells, black beans, chorizo, poached eggs, chipotle hollandaise. 3 course brunch $19
Fuego Cocina y Tequileria, Arlington VA

This tasted pretty good, but damn it was rich and filling! The masa was thick and dense and combined with the chorizo and hollandaise, but was a recipe for definite heartburn. Thank god I have a stomach of steel! Like I said, it tasted good but I think I could have done with just one of them.

Mimosas - Fuego Cocina y Tequileria
Traditional Mimosa. $2
Prickly Pear Mimosa: cava prickly pear puree, orange juice. $5

Garlic scallop & spicy salmon hand rolls – SEI

Garlic scallop & spicy salmon hand rolls - SEI
Open sushi hand rolls. Happy hour $4 each
SEI, Washington DC

I definitely liked the spicy salmon more than the garlic scallop. The scallop hand roll tasted off and the texture was mushy. The spicy salmon had a more distinct flavor and a nice firm texture.

Faux Punishment cocktail - SEI
Faux Punishment: rum, star of anise, aromatic bitters, citrus. Happy hour $8

Hummus dip – Level

Hummus dip - Level
Black bean, jalapeno, yellow onion, lime juice, cumin, tomato, tortilla chips. Happy hour $4
Level, Annapolis MD

This hummus was delicious! And for only four bucks, what!? It had a great thick, substantial texture and really great flavors incorporated into it. It also had a nice kick to it which I really enjoyed.

Bourbonapolis cocktail - Level
Bourbonapolis: Woodford Reserve bourbon, aperol, apple shrub, lemon, orgeat, peychaud, hard cider cube. $9
A really yummy cocktail. And I loved the large hard cider ice cube – nice!

World famous Pusser’s painkiller – Pusser’s Caribbean Grille

World famous Pusser's painkiller - Pusser's Caribbean Grille
Pusser’s rum, pineapple juice, orange juice, cream of coconut, served on the rocks with orange slice and cherry, topped with nutmeg. $8
Pusser’s Caribbean Grille, Annapolis MD

I don’t know why I order these cocktails. They always end up being super sweet and not worth the calories. This tasted fine but I would have preferred a Manhattan in retrospect.
