Spicy pork belly bibim bowl – BibimBar

Spicy pork belly bibim bowl - BibimBar
Japchae, lettuce, red cabbage, carrot, pickled radish, bean sprouts, grilled onion, and spicy sauce. $9.95
BibimBar, San Francisco CA

The prices have gone up for the bowls here, but I still crave them every once in a while since there aren’t many Korean food options in the FiDi. BibimBar is a decent option for a quick, satisfying lunch.

Tangerine and soda – Pineapple & Pearls

Tangerine and soda - Pineapple & Pearls
Purple sweet potato brioche. Bar seating $180
Pineapple & Pearls, Washington DC

This was a fun and tasty intermezzo. I liked that it wasn’t too sweet and the presentation was cute. The fizz from the soda was also nice to help cleanse the palate.

Extra bite - Pineapple & Pearls
I forget what was in this tiny bite that was present after the lamb course. I remember that I didn’t much care for the brown stuff though, lol!

Ribs and BBQ shoulder combo platter – Germantown Commissary

Ribs and BBQ shoulder combo platter - Germantown Commissary
Includes beans, slaw, biscuits, and deviled egg. Any two meats $19.95
Germantown Commissary, Memphis TN

This was my first Memphis style bbq experience in Memphis and I was not impressed. The pork ribs were SO dry! The pulled shoulder was less dry, but still on the dry side. I had to douse them with plenty of bbq sauce to make them more palatable. The service was also kinda rude and inattentive. Not a great start for my trip!
