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.
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.
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!
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!
